Using speed and a precision passing attack, Radnor raced past Unionville, 23-14, in a PIAA state girls' lacrosse semifinal Tuesday at West Chester East. The Red Raiders will defend their state championship Saturday at HersheyPark Stadium against Springfield (Delco). Two weeks ago, Radnor (25-1) posted a 12-9 win over Unionville (22-4), and the rematch was expected to be defense-oriented. "I really didn't expect such a high-scoring game," said senior Kelyn Freedman, who scored three goals and had four assists for Radnor.

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.

A four-year-old Radnor company on Wednesday moved aggressively to capture a bigger share of the lucrative market for sand used in hydraulic fracturing of oil and natural gas wells. Preferred Sands L.L.C. announced it was spending more than $200 million to buy "substantially all the assets" of Winn Bay Sand L.P., including mines in Blair, Wis., and Hanson Lake, Saskatchewan. In a statement, the privately held company founded by Michael G. O'Neill proclaimed itself the largest frack-sand producer in Canada and one of the top three in the United States.

Annie Woehling knows the signs. They come in distorted purplish welts and bruises on her arms and legs - her personal badges of honor. They tell the Radnor junior goalkeeper she's doing a good job of keeping the enemy away, sacrificing herself for the good of her team and enabling Radnor to keep winning. Woehling buried her bruised legs in ice Thursday night after making 10 saves in the rain-suspended first half of the girls' PIAA District 1 lacrosse championship against Springfield.

The atmosphere prior to the contest between Radnor and Lower Merion Saturday afternoon was similar to that of a playoff game. It did not seem to matter to either the players or fans that the two teams had a combined three wins or that both gave up more than 40 points last week in shutout losses. With Lower Merion's 16-7 victory, the Aces not only defeated a bitter rival but also had reason to celebrate a long season. "This makes our season," said Lower Merion coach Paul Petrillo, while proudly displaying the annual trophy presented to the winning team.

Lindsay Price came out sizzling and kept it going en route to a career-high 20 points as host Radnor beat Marple Newtown, 58-46, in a Central League girls' basketball game Monday. Price, a senior forward, scored 14 points in the first half as Radnor built a 27-21 lead. She also had eight rebounds. Myonie Williamson added 15 points. Public League. Simon Gratz kept up its strong play of late with a 54-40 win at Martin Luther King. The Bulldogs have won four straight games by double digits.

As far as the Radnor girls' basketball team has come this season, a little thing like a nine-point deficit in the third quarter wasn't going to be too much to overcome. Radnor came storming back in the fourth quarter to beat Conestoga, 47-39, on Monday at Marple Newtown and clinch its first-ever Central League title. After starting the season 1-4, the Red Raiders have won 17 of their last 19 games. Not a traditional basketball powerhouse, Radnor has four senior starters - Taylor Quinn, Shannon Quinn, Lindsay Price, and Kyla Crombie - who will be done with their basketball careers when the season ends.

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.

Qlik Technologies Inc., better known as QlikTech, has been on a roll lately, adding customers worldwide from its Radnor headquarters. QlikTech has also been winning kudos in the tech community for its easy-to-use data analytics software. Even so, Lars Björk, 51, wasn't having his best day recently. QlikTech's chief executive had just returned from a 10-day bicycle trip in Africa with the founder of HopeHIV, a charity that helps African children orphaned by AIDS. The ride was great.

Twins Taylor and Shannon Quinn relied on their lacrosse instincts on Thursday night as they provided stifling defense to help Radnor edge visiting Garnet Valley, 42-39, in overtime in Central League girls' basketball. Radnor trailed by four points with 6 minutes, 45 seconds left in regulation before the Quinns helped keep the Jaguars scoreless for the final 10:45. The Quinns, senior guards, have committed to play lacrosse in college. Shannon will head to William & Mary, and Taylor is bound for Columbia.
