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.

" 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.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Just before the season began, the Radnor boys' lacrosse team lost one of its most important figures when assistant coach George "Senior" Corrigan passed away at 84.

If all goes according to plan, most of the action Alex Andersen sees in his athletic career occurs in front of him. In the fall and winter, the 6-foot-2, 270-pound center snaps footballs, pounds linebackers and protects the ball carriers and quarterbacks. Come springtime, however, Andersen is the last line of defense as goaltender of the Radnor lacrosse team. "Physically, the actions you are doing are a lot different," said Andersen, who will play football at Penn next season.

"We ain't done yet!" the senior attacker growled after a PIAA semifinal victory Tuesday. "We ain't done yet!" Second-half domination helped the Raiders thump Springfield (Delco), 12-5, at Haverford High and also exorcise some demons.

The pop of the softball after it comes out of Meg Wimmer's right hand and into Nicole O'Donnell's glove is more noticeable these days. Since the Chichester ace first stepped onto the mound this season, that sound has been louder. And to opposing batters, the ball has looked more like a blur than usual. Wimmer, a senior, has been an imposing presence for the Eagles (21-2) since she walked into the circle as a freshman. But for her final campaign, she's been putting together something really special.
