Christy Von Pusch remembers May 31, 2011 as "unbearably hot. " The Radnor softball ace pitched well that day, well enough to strike out 11 and limit Pottsgrove to two hits. But not well enough to prevent postgame tears. All it took was one pitch. In the third inning of the Red Raiders' District 1 Class AAA semifinal, her scorching fastball got away from the catcher. The passed ball allowed the only run of the game to score. During the 2011 season, Von Pusch recorded 14 of her team's 15 wins, posted an ERA of 0.80, struck out 248 batters, and threw seven no-hitters.

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.
