To hear Monica Borzillo tell it, nothing was going to stop Conestoga from winning the PIAA girls' lacrosse championship this time.

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.

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.

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 Radnor girls' lacrosse season may be on the cusp of a grand finale, but the Red Raiders were on the brink of disappointment 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 at West Chester East at noon on Saturday.

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.

Radnor's Michelle Gorson was standing on third base in the 11th inning, with her team locked in a 2-2 tie with visiting Nazareth Academy on Wednesday. Gorson decided she would try to score if the ball was hit on the ground. She heard the crack of Holly Pachella's bat, but there was a problem. It was a fly ball, not a hard-hit shot up the middle. Gorson scurried back to the bag, tagged up, and raced home to score the decisive run in a 3-2 victory over the Pandas. Afterward, Gorson, a third baseman, called the moment nerve-racking.

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.
