Conestoga entered Wednesday night's Central League field hockey matchup with Radnor on a five-game win streak, having outscored its opponents, 27-2, during that time. Despite conceding two goals to the Raiders with fewer than four minutes to play, the Pioneers were able to hold on for a 3-2 victory at Teamer Field. 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.

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. Williamson, a sophomore who had nine fourth-quarter points, scored off a pass from Quinn for the game-winning layup with 10 seconds left.

Radnor's Will Girton traded in his catcher's mask for another hat Saturday afternoon: that of hero relief pitcher. Girton took the hill in the third inning and proceeded to strike out four, allowing two unearned runs over seven innings of relief in what would become a 7-5 nonleague baseball victory at Episcopal Academy. Radnor took the lead with two outs in the top of the ninth when Mike Lanzone was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, scoring Connor Wilson. James Lofton added an insurance run by scoring on a wild pitch.

Villanova University has cleared a major hurdle in its expansion plans, which include building dormitories on an existing parking lot along Lancaster Avenue. The Radnor Township Board of Commissioners voted late Monday night to approve zoning changes for the estimated $300 million project, a step that took two years and drew strong opposition from some residents. Villanova wants to build new dormitories, a performing arts center, parking garage, and campus bookstore. A vocal group of residents has spent thousands of dollars and has packed meetings to fight the plans, which some said would increase traffic and noise while bringing an unwanted urban feel to their Main Line community in Delaware County.

RADNOR In the heart of the Main Line, a Blue Route nexus and home to universities and colleges, Radnor Township is one of the region's most desirable locations. Two development proposals - involving Villanova University and the former Wyeth property - have many township residents worrying whether Radnor could be paying a price for its attributes, whether the township was approaching a breaking point. In recent months, they have been packing township meetings to express their anxieties.

In a hearing Monday, James Schneller, 58, said he wanted to provide a voice for "the more moral, ethical, and religious population" that opposes same-sex marriage and to present arguments that go beyond what the state's attorneys would say to defend the ban.

RADNOR Five televisions line the walls of the "war room," an otherwise unremarkable conference room in one of several buildings in a Radnor office complex on Matsonford Road. Showing on each set is an event on NBC or its affiliates at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. The TVs face a long table where a "sports content team," a half-dozen writers equipped with laptops, has worked throughout the Games, compiling data and profiles of the top athletes, and teams for distribution, throughout the North American English-speaking digital world.

RADNOR About a decade has elapsed since the last Wyeth workers walked out of the complex in Radnor Township that had served as their company's global headquarters since the 1950s. More than history, their departure for a new headquarters in Collegeville created something nearly as valuable: a sprawling piece of commercial property in one of the region's most desirable but largely developed zip codes. The 26-acre parcel,near the intersection of I-476 and Route 30, represents one of Radnor's largest development opportunities in years.
