*Phyllis Kilgour was head coach at Radnor for 32 years and won District 1 crowns in 1986, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2003 and 2008 before the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association (PIAA) began to sanction a state tournament in 2009. Until then, the District 1 champions were considered to be state champions.
Radnor defeated Springfield-Delco, 14-7, for its second PIAA title under Kilgour in 2010. She was named Phillylacrosse.com Coach of the Year.
Kilgour’s teams went 75-2 in her last three years and an incredible 231-24-1 since 2000. Thirty-eight of her players have been All-Americans and many more have gone on to excel at the college level and some eventually became college coaches.
Kilgour has served as Pennsylvania Scholastic Lacrosse Association (PASLA) National Tournament Chair, PASLA Treasurer, PASLA League Representative, All-American Committee, and on the US U-19 Team selection committee. In addition, she has helped organized and coach the U-17 and U-19 teams from the area competing in the annual Vail Shootout in Colorado.
She was elected to the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 2005. A graduate of J.P. McCaskey, Kilgour graduated from Indiana University and began coaching lacrosse at Radnor Middle School in the late 1960s.
*Kim Jackson was a three-time National champion as a goalie at Delaware in the 1980s and is considered as of the top women’s lacrosse goalkeepers in NCAA history.

As the 25-year head coach at Henderson High, Jackson has won three state titles (the 1998 team was a national runner-up) and had two runner-up finishes. Last year her team went 13-6 and qualified for the District 1 tournament. Her program has also produced three U19 players, numerous All Americans and Division I players. She was named coach of the year three times and has been inducted into the Eastern Pennsylvania Chapter of the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame, as well as the Conestoga High School and the University of Delaware Athletic Halls of Fame.
