The PIAA boys' and girls' lacrosse championships, typically held at Hersheypark Stadium, will move to West Chester East High in June to accommodate a Beyoncé concert, according Melissa Mertz, associate executive director of the PIAA. Beyoncé, the internationally renowned singer and performer, was booked for June 12 in Hershey. The lacrosse finals were slated for June 11. "I just joked around saying, 'What lacrosse isn't as sexy as Beyoncé?' " said Mertz, laughing. As first reported by Lancaster Online, the lacrosse finals will still be held on June 11 in West Chester East's Zimmerman Stadium.

Episcopal Academy senior Julia Hondros may have noticed that the Churchmen left the door slightly ajar just before halftime against host Penn Charter on Tuesday afternoon. With just 2.3 seconds left in the half, however, Hondros nailed it shut for good. After Hannah Fox notched back-to-back goals for the previously undefeated Quakers, Hondros, a 5-foot-10 Brown recruit, rushed downfield and fired to give Episcopal a five-goal lead, which it parlayed into a 15-6 victory. "Clock awareness," said Hondros, who finished with four goals.

It's been 317 days since Conestoga lost in its first PIAA state final, squandering an early four-goal lead and handing Garnet Valley its second straight lacrosse championship and fourth in the last five years. Last season was nearly perfect for the Pioneers, who finished with an 11-0 record in the Central League and captured their first league title in the tenure of seven-year head coach Amy Orcutt. Although Conestoga's championship game loss is in the rearview mirror with the 2016 season underway, some players still feel the sting of the defeat.

Even from across the country, Colleen Magarity, Penn Charter's first-year lacrosse coach, coveted the skills of Quakers senior Hannah Fox. Fox was a sophomore back then. Magarity, arguably the most successful player out of Germantown Academy, was an assistant coach on the recruiting trail for the University of Colorado. Fate would later bring player and coach together, and on Tuesday afternoon the duo shared a special moment at rival Germantown Academy. Fox, already Penn Charter's all-time leading scorer in basketball - boys and girls - notched her 100th career lacrosse goal in the Quakers' 13-8 victory against the Patriots, who were led by one of Magarity's former coaches.

It was as if the disappointments of years passed echoed in the air Wednesday night after Central Bucks West senior Will Ross ripped a shot that pinged off the post in double overtime against rival Central Bucks East. Less than two minutes later, however, Ross, who had continually watched his older brother Jake lose to the Patriots, heard only the raucous screams of his teammates after he whipped the game-winning goal. "Biggest game any of us have played our whole lives," Ross said, tears still fresh in his eyes.

Clearview's Collin Love still keeps in touch with many of the great players who came before him. Just last week, he was on FaceTime with former teammate Matt Donnelly, the 2015 Inquirer player of the year, who now plays midfield for Penn State. "I look up to anybody who I see is playing lacrosse at a high level," Love said. "Anyone who has put in the work and has that kind of talent, that kind of appreciation for the game, I look up to them. "And I make sure I'm always striving to get to that level myself.

Tommy McNamara could be excused for his incredulity. The Haverford School senior hasn't played much lacrosse at rival Malvern Prep, let alone scored a game-winning goal. On Tuesday, however, the Notre Dame recruit was momentarily stunned after netting back-to-back goals in the final minute of the Fords' improbable come-from-behind 10-9 victory. "Wow, did that really just happen?" McNamara recalled thinking after his goal with 3.9 seconds remaining gave the Fords (6-3, 1-0) the lead for good.

When Upper Dublin senior Michael Mullen shoots a lacrosse ball, the 6-foot attacker doesn't get cheated. In the first quarter of Monday's 21-1 destruction of visiting Upper Merion, Mullen ripped a shot about 10 yards left of the goal that whizzed past the goaltender, squirted through a black, chain-linked fence and bounced down bustling Susquehanna Avenue. "That happens all the time, especially with him," said Upper Dublin senior Allison Silk, a team manager. "Last week, he hit a car. " Monday's missile spared passing vehicles and finally came to rest about 100 yards away from the field, nestled near a sewer grate.

Within the 5-foot-8, 165-pound body of Michael Sowers is a heart that refuses to quit and a spleen that nearly derailed his football and lacrosse dreams. Last week, the senior attacker for Upper Dublin, who is believed to be the all-time assist leader in U.S. boys' high school lacrosse history, was named to the U.S. men's under-19 national lacrosse team. To understand the significance of the accomplishment, however, you need to consider his bout with mononucleosis during football season.

Like so many other facets of the Moorestown girls' lacrosse program, Deanna Knobloch sounded as if she was on repeat. Another accolade, another milestone, another historic moment - more praise that the veteran coach never seems to acknowledge. On Wednesday, Knobloch logged the 500th victory of her 23-year career as head coach of the Quakers in a 15-3 win over Clearview. She'd been asked about it ad nauseam in the weeks leading up. And most who asked received a similar answer.
