Izzy Schaefer and Holly Pachella were talking about it in the dugout. Their Radnor softball team needed a run, and needed one quickly. The conversation between the Raiders pitcher and catcher happened with Katie Jordan at the plate, and while Jordan couldn't hear them, she surely came through. Jordan's fourth-inning, inside-the-park home run was the difference for Radnor, which went on to defeat Springfield (Delco), 2-0, Friday in the District 1 Class AAA championship game at Harriton.

Melina Avery knew what people were saying about the Harriton girls' lacrosse team entering its rematch with Radnor: The Rams couldn't beat the top-seeded Red Raiders, not again. On Tuesday at West Chester Henderson, however, the Rams quieted the doubters, rolling over the Red Raiders, 15-6, in the semifinals of the District 1 tournament. "I think we really just showed today that we are the better team," said Avery, a junior goalie. "It's always good to come out and play games like that.

After claiming state championships in 2009 and 2010, the Radnor girls' lacrosse team experienced some rebuilding pains last season. "It was kind of expected," senior midfielder Kristen Norden said. "We didn't go as far in the playoffs as we had in the past. That gave us a bigger hunger to do well this year. " On Thursday evening, with senior Natalie Miller producing four goals, the Red Raiders doubled up Central League rival Conestoga, 14-7, in the PIAA District 1 final at West Chester East's Harold I. Zimmerman Stadium.

Just before Merion Mercy's free-throw shooters released their shots in a deathly silent Wissahickon gym, a boy from the Radnor student section sneezed, yelled, or made animal noises on cue to create a distraction. Eventually, the Merion Mercy crowd tried to counter, and as fate would have it, Radnor had the game in the balance at the line in the final seconds. Fifth-seeded Merion Mercy (14-12) ended up missing 8 of 15 free throws a game after making 24 of 30 in the quarterfinals against Chichester, but nothing could distract Myonie Williamson and Nicole Massimino.

Radnor reeled off a 15-2 run in the final three minutes without its leading scorer in the lineup and stunned visiting Marple Newtown, 48-47, in Central League girls' basketball on Friday night. Hannah Rose Nussbaum left the game with a season-ending ankle injury just two minutes into the contest, but Myonie Williamson (17 points), Shannon Quinn (11), and Hannah Schug (10) picked up the Red Raiders offense.

After scrapping a controversial plan for a hotel, apartments, and retail space on one of the region's most desirable sites, BioMed Realty Trust has returned to Radnor Township with a counterproposal. But officials and residents of the Main Line community say the new plan - for an office park near the heavily traveled intersection of the Blue Route and Lancaster Avenue - is even worse. "The dismay that I feel, it comes from the fact that this is a very sophisticated community and we should be able to come up with a better solution for this site," Commissioner Elaine Schaefer said at last Monday's meeting when the plan was presented.

Rich in property wealth, Radnor Township reaps a harvest of tax dollars annually from its real estate. But from three owners of some of its most highly valued parcels, Radnor collects a grand total of $0.00. Those properties are owned by Villanova University, Eastern University, and Cabrini College - all exempt from real estate levies because they are nonprofits. Now Radnor is going after the schools to kick in to the township coffers, seeking nearly $1 million a year. Similar conflicts between taxing authorities and owners of exempt properties have played out across the country, as towns and schools scratch for money.

Police are investigating how a bag of bullets ended up in the common area of a Main Line Hebrew school Wednesday, prompting a major law enforcement response and an early end to the school day. "There was never a threat or any type of imminent threat," Lt. Andy Block, a Radnor police spokesman, said of the discovery before noon of the ammunition at the Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy on South Bryn Mawr Avenue. He said officers and dogs from the Radnor and Haverford police departments did a security check of the school and, because of the hour of the day, students were dismissed early.

The tip that a Radnor Township High School student might have been plotting a school shooting came from a classmate who saw her threatening writings in a notebook, the student and school officials confirmed Tuesday. Zachary Taylor said in an interview that he and the girl, both 17-year-old seniors, were working on a sociology assignment about the 1999 school massacre at Columbine High School in Colorado. Taylor said the girl gave him her notebook and he did a double-take after seeing "all kinds of disturbing stuff" written inside.

The latest incident occurred Monday, when a Darby Borough police officer died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Ridley Park.
