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.

When Hannah Nihill gets the basketball, she immediately looks up. Her first thought as she makes her way down the floor is almost always, "Where's Mary?" Cardinal O'Hara's point guard, Nihill, is as quick as they come. And her teammate, Mary Sheehan, can motor down the floor as well. And that's how it went Friday night: No. 20 (Nihill) to No. 13 (Sheehan). Repeat. The sophomore duo was a dangerous one for O'Hara, which beat Radnor, 54-36, in the first-round of the PIAA Class AAAA state tournament at Lansdale Catholic.

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. Upper Darby was led by quarterback Chris McGarry, who threw for 126 yards and three touchdowns and rushed for 64 yards on 12 carries.

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.

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.
