"Yes, girlfriend," Maggie Balint said as she extended her hand to an Avon Grove softball teammate, Olivia Kunitsky, in foul territory. "Give me some," the senior said, smiling at the freshman in a way that said, "Atta girl. " Kunitsky had just caught a pop-up bunt close to the fence at Twin Valley Middle School after bursting out of her crouch and getting in position to make the play. It was a small interaction - a pitcher wanting to give her catcher a high-five after putting forth some extra effort - and even smaller in the grand scheme of the game.

As Jess Linquist walked to the plate for the West Deptford softball team, with the bases loaded and her team trailing Johnson High, coach Mandy Schramm knew which side had the odds in their favor.

You wouldn't have been able to tell the outcome of the game from the look on Jess Huber's face. When the buzzer at Spring-Ford sounded Friday night, the celebration by the North Penn girls' basketball team was minimal. Sure, the Maidens had just won a PIAA Class 4A state quarterfinal contest over Neshaminy - but just barely, 42-41. And Huber's face, as she walked to the sideline for postgame handshakes said it all. She looked relieved. She looked as if she couldn't believe they had gotten away with it. She looked as if she wanted to put the game behind her as soon as she could.
