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.

Matthew Webster comes from exceptional lacrosse stock, but the La Salle High senior defenseman hasn't always believed in his own abilities on the field. Saturday afternoon against visiting Radnor, however, Webster's defensive prowess helped limit one of the nation's top talents and secure a 6-1 victory for the Explorers. The defending PIAA champion Red Raiders were led by senior Jack Wilson, a University of Maryland recruit, who netted the game-winning goal in overtime last season to give Radnor its first state title.

After playing understudy for the last two seasons, the time is now for Radnor junior goaltender Tucker Ballbach. Last year, senior goalie Alex Andersen, a 6-foot-2, 270-pounder now playing football at Penn, led the Red Raiders to their first PIAA lacrosse championship. This year, however, the 5-9, 160-pound Ballbach stands between the pipes. And in Tuesday's 9-3 victory over visiting West Chester East, Ballbach stood tall, stopping 11 shots and seizing an opportunity he's long awaited.

When Farrah, a German shepherd stray, came to Francisvale Home for Smaller Animals in 2012 with a tumor on her right eye, she refused to live anywhere in the no-kill shelter except its bustling kitchen. There, she fell in love with everyone but went ballistic every day when staffers prepared to feed Francisvale's 65 cats. The sounds of kibble being poured into metal bowls sent Farrah into a frenzy of jumping, barking, spinning in circles, and biting her tail. Bright sunlight streaming through a kitchen window and the moving shadow of a ceiling fan were equally powerful triggers.

The Archbishop Ryan girls' basketball players probably were late for dinner on Saturday. If they were, it was excusable, as the Ragdolls were busy defeating Radnor, 68-65, in quadruple overtime in the George Betz Memorial Bracket of the Boardwalk Classic. The ride home from the Wildwoods Convention Center was a little sweeter for Archbishop Ryan guard Megan McLaughlin. The junior hit a three-pointer from the corner with seven ticks left on the clock, lifting her team to a victory.

A bullet found in a Radnor High School hallway on Monday was all it took for the school to declare a lockdown, news helicopters and reporters to rush to the scene, five bomb dogs from four jurisdictions to be brought to investigate, and parents and students to send a steady stream of text messages back and forth. "Society right now is so hyped about shootings," said Janelle McClure, a parent who was waiting anxiously for school to be dismissed. She was upset that the school did not contact parents immediately about the discovery.
