Conestoga coach Meg Ryan said Radnor's offense was able to get the best of her team during the final moments of the game. "Radnor showed up, and they put us on our heels, I think," Ryan said.

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.

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.

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.

To hear Monica Borzillo tell it, nothing was going to stop Conestoga from winning the PIAA girls' lacrosse championship this time. Saturday morning at West Chester East, the Lady Pioneers, who finished runner-up last season, could not be denied. Conestoga ran away from Radnor, 18-7, to claim its first girls' lacrosse state championship. "We finished the season!" said Borzillo, who coupled four goals with eight assists. "Our whole goal this year was to get back here and win it. Last year, we had it ripped from us by Garnet Valley.

The Radnor girls' lacrosse season may be on the cusp of a grand finale, but the Red Raiders were on the brink of disappointment back in late April. The reason for the turnaround: trust falls, blindfolds, and, perhaps, fate. Now, Radnor (20-6) will face season-long favorite Conestoga in the PIAA girls' lacrosse state championship game at West Chester East on Saturday at 10 a.m. The game was originally scheduled for noon but moved up because of possible afternoon thunderstorms. After poor communication and even worse execution marred a disappointing home loss to Springfield (Delco)

Thrillers abounded at Penncrest on Tuesday as Radnor's girls and Springfield Delco's boys teams earned bids to their PIAA championship games. In Game 1, Radnor (20-6) rallied after an 8-2 deficit to knock off two-time defending champion Garnet Valley, 10-9. In the nightcap, the Cougars (20-7) scored the game's last five goals and held off Strath Haven, 8-5, thanks in large part to the stingy goaltending of junior James Spence. "I've been working all my life for this," said Spence, who finished with 11 saves.

Emily Mathewson had been in a similar position 299 times before, but during a domination of Owen J. Roberts on Saturday afternoon, the Garnet Valley senior felt a pinch of nerves as she prepared to shoot. That's because career goal No. 300 was potentially in her stick with about 10 minutes left in Game 2 of a PIAA quarterfinal doubleheader at Marple Newtown. Garnet Valley won comfortably, 15-6, and now advances to the semifinals next week against Radnor, which already upset the two-time defending state champion Jaguars in the District 1 playoffs.

Sometimes defeat can be the best teacher of success. Conestoga, however, hadn't tasted such bitterness much of this lacrosse season. That is until the Lady Pioneers fell in the District 1 playoffs to eventual district champion Radnor. Now, Conestoga (18-1) hopes its only blemish this season catapults the squad to a state championship. "We all got fired up after it," said senior Sondra Dickey. "I think that was our motivation to get better and not be satisfied. " Saturday at 11 a.m. at Avon Grove, the Lady Pioneers, the 5th seed from District 1, will face Kennard Dale (23-1)

GALLOWAY, N.J. – Brynn Walker is absolutely thrilled to have qualified for the ShopRite LPGA Classic, her first career event on the women's tour. But she knows that she needs to find a way to temper that excitement and stay focused when she tees off on Friday. Walker, who celebrated her 18th birthday on Wednesday and graduates from Radnor High School next Wednesday, has been seeking to find that balance since she shot a 2-under-par 69 to grab one of two available spots in the field for the event at Stockton Seaview Resort's Bay Course.
