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.

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.

For Matt Cherry, pressure is not being forced to make a quick decision on the lacrosse field. It's having 10 seconds to get to a bomb shelter. Cherry, a Radnor High School graduate, starred in lacrosse at Dickinson College and graduated in 2013 as a two-time all-American and the school's all-time leader in assists. He never would have guessed where his path would take him next. He connected with Birthright, an educational organization that sponsors free 10-day trips to Israel for Jewish adults ages 18 to 26. He went with no plans to stay longer, but he has called Israel home ever since.

The trail would be an invitation to criminals and depress property values, its critics warned, and the proposal to build it over an old railroad bed set off tense debates at public meetings, close votes, and a lawsuit. Now, nearly a decade since the 2.4-mile trail opened in Radnor Township, it is popular - even congested, at times - with walkers, runners, and bicyclists. It is such a success, in fact, that Radnor is considering a long-range plan that would more than triple the length of trails through the township, connecting, and making use of, its open space.

Jodi Sabra began her career as an actress. The training has served her well as a sixth-grade social studies and language-arts teacher at Radnor Middle School in Wayne. She views teaching as a performance art, and her style of teaching is infused with her congenital optimism. In 2009, a college friend who runs a service travel program asked Sabra whether she'd like to involve her students in a pen-pal program with students at a school in Uganda. "I say yes to everything," Sabra says, and soon her students were writing letters to the Bupala Primary School in the remote Iganga district of Uganda.

The crowd was eager to mark the team's first state-championship berth, but coaches did not want a raucous celebration. "You guys go over to them. They don't come over the fence," an assistant directed after the team ended its huddle.
