After years of trying, California-based BioMed Realty Trust has abandoned its controversial plan to develop an 18-acre property along Radnor Township's main corridor. The company said Friday that it had sold the former Wyeth Laboratories site - at a $32 million loss - to the University of Pennsylvania Health System, which plans to build doctor's offices and a surgical center. The decision marked a major defeat for BioMed, which once envisioned a hotel, apartments, and retail space for the site on King of Prussia Road near Lancaster Avenue and I-476.

Meyers, also an accomplished wrestler, won 17 of 19 faceoffs and didn't lose his first until the third quarter. He also added a pair of goals.

The pop of the softball after it comes out of Meg Wimmer's right hand and into Nicole O'Donnell's glove is more noticeable these days. Since the Chichester ace first stepped onto the mound this season, that sound has been louder. And to opposing batters, the ball has looked more like a blur than usual. Wimmer, a senior, has been an imposing presence for the Eagles (21-2) since she walked into the circle as a freshman. But for her final campaign, she's been putting together something really special.

Everyone needs reminders from time to time, and the Radnor girls' lacrosse team is no different. After falling to Harriton in the District 1 tournament, the Raiders reminded themselves what they're capable of, and pulled off a thrilling 8-7 overtime victory Saturday in a PIAA quarterfinals rematch at West Chester East. After Hannah Proctor scored the tying goal with 1 minute and 50 seconds left in regulation, coach Brooke Fritz reminded her team again. "I just told them that they had controlled the second half of the game," Fritz said.

John Roulston felt awesome, and rightfully so. Conestoga's senior goalie made a handful of big saves, including several in a row to help stave off a furious Radnor attack in the closing moments of a 6-5 win Tuesday afternoon in the PIAA District 1 semifinals at West Chester Henderson. "I was just thinking that I've got to focus on the next one," Roulston said. "Just make sure to get the next shot. You've got to just give it your all, every second of every play. " Roulston made 13 saves, with the final four coming on four straight Radnor shots in the final minutes.

Minutes before his Harriton team did battle with Radnor in a District 1 semifinal Tuesday, a hopeful George Dick hoped aloud for one more upset. "I thought there would be one upset tonight, but I was hoping it would be us," he said. "We'll see. " Great Valley had already knocked off top-seeded Conestoga in the first game of a District 1 girls' lacrosse semifinal doubleheader at Haverford High. Thanks to a five-goal effort from Jane Henderson, No. 3 Harriton completed a night of upsets with a 13-11 win over No. 2 Radnor.

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.

At each of the first 11 fences, the five-horse pack leaped one after another, and Portrade kept a comfortable lead. But after the last jump, three horses closed in on Portrade, and it was Bob Le Beau who edged ahead before storming past the finish line. Ridden by jockey Jack Doyle, Bob Le Beau was the biggest winner at the Radnor Hunt Races in Malvern on Saturday. He won the National Hunt Cup - the six-race event's feature run - and a $50,000 purse for his owners at the Fields Stable.

Radnor Township police hope footage of a burglary suspect they said used the Norristown High Speed Line to make a quick getaway will help identify him and lead to an arrest. Police said Thursday that a 79-year-old woman returned to her home on Hawthorne Road around 11 a.m. April 17 to find an unknown man had broken in through the front door. "Get inside and don't say anything," he allegedly ordered the victim, who, police said, ignored the command, fled to a neighbor's house, and called 911. Witnesses reported that the man then headed toward the rail line.
