The Red Raiders swarmed and pressured, and finally outlasted Lower Dauphin in a 4-1 victory. It wasn't easy, but Radnor became the first team to capture three straight Flyers Cup Class A titles.

Radnor did not lose a girls' lacrosse match this year. But the Raiders still found room to improve along the way to a state title. That improvement was clearly evident Friday as the Raiders broke open a tense 4-4 game at halftime to power past Phoenixville, 10-5, to capture the school's first PIAA District 1 Championship on a sweltering pitch at Upper Merion. Because this district is the only one in the state to run a playoff in lacrosse, the District 1 titlist is generally considered to be the state champion.
