Conestoga ran away from Radnor, 18-7, to claim its first girls' lacrosse state championship. "We finished the season!" said Borzillo, who coupled four goals with eight assists. "Our whole goal this year was to get back here and win it. Last year, we had it ripped from us by Garnet Valley.

Matthew Webster comes from exceptional lacrosse stock, but the La Salle High senior defenseman hasn't always believed in his own abilities on the field. Saturday afternoon against visiting Radnor, however, Webster's defensive prowess helped limit one of the nation's top talents and secure a 6-1 victory for the Explorers. The defending PIAA champion Red Raiders were led by senior Jack Wilson, a University of Maryland recruit, who netted the game-winning goal in overtime last season to give Radnor its first state title.

When the Radnor boys' lacrosse team took the field Saturday at Harriton the Raiders didn't look to get redemption. They looked toward taking the next step. In their PIAA District 1 quarterfinal match against No. 3 Bishop Shanahan , the sixth-seeded Raiders did just that, advancing with a 9-4 win and earning a spot in the state playoffs. Last season, the story was different, as the Eagles knocked off Radnor, 10-8, in double-overtime of the quarterfinals. "We really didn't talk much about last year," Radnor coach John Begier said.

The Upper Darby football team already had survived the toughest part of its schedule, highlighted by last week's dramatic victory over Ridley.

The victory helped the Royals improve to 5-1 overall and 4-1 in the league. Radnor fell to 1-6 and 0-5.

Radnor went 0-5 to begin the season, played the first 11 games without speedy centerfielder Connor Wilson because of a rare illness, and lost two of its three pitchers to injuries. The Raiders remarkably overcame those obstacles to claim the PIAA District 1 Class 3A baseball championship. Mark Jordan's fifth-seeded squad did all of its scoring in the top of the first inning and blanked second-seeded Upper Moreland, 3-0, in the final Wednesday afternoon at Glen Mills. "These players really know their roles and they buy into what we're trying to accomplish as a team," Jordan said.

The Radnor girls' lacrosse season may be on the cusp of a grand finale, but the Red Raiders were on the brink of disappointment back in late April. The reason for the turnaround: trust falls, blindfolds, and, perhaps, fate. Now, Radnor (20-6) will face season-long favorite Conestoga in the PIAA girls' lacrosse state championship game at West Chester East on Saturday at 10 a.m. The game was originally scheduled for noon but moved up because of possible afternoon thunderstorms. After poor communication and even worse execution marred a disappointing home loss to Springfield (Delco)

HERSHEY, Pa. - Just before the season began, the Radnor boys' lacrosse team lost one of its most important figures when assistant coach George "Senior" Corrigan passed away at 84. From that moment on, the Raiders decided what their goal would be: Win it for Senior. With 48 seconds left in overtime of the PIAA state final Saturday against St. Joseph's Prep, Jack Wilson made sure they did. Wilson scored off a Drew Ryan pass to give Radnor an 11-10 victory and its first state title.

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.
