Radnor coach Phyllis Kilgour said many people can share in her milestone of 500 career wins.
Kilgour reached the amazing plateau Friday when her Raiders opened with an impressive and shocking 21-0 rout of defending District 1 Class AAA champion West Chester East. Kilgour, who has coached at Radnor for 42 years – 29 as head coach after 13 years running the middle school program – reflected back on her career, which has included five state championships and many standout student-athletes.
“I really have had just tremendous kids,” she said. “I still remember our first state championship team in 1986 and I still hear from some of them.
“A lot of them have gone into coaching, and now I am coaching a lot of their daughters. That’s a lot of longevity, but I have had great people helping me, too, from coaches in the recreational league on up.”
Haverford College sophomore Josie Ferri (Pennsbury) was named Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Week.
In last Saturday’s league-opening, 13-10 victory over Muhlenberg Ferri tallied five goals and one assist. Ferri made the most of her opportunities, scoring five goals on six shots
for an .833 shooting percentage.
Ferri put the unbeaten Fords on her back, scoring four times in the second half with three coming in less than four minutes to give Haverford a three-goal lead.
The win lifted the Fords to a perfect 8-0 as they gear for Wednesday’s CC game against Ursinus College.

3/30/13 – Women’s lacrosse: Heavens (Garnet Valley) helps PSU shock No. 2 Florida
After facing a three-goal halftime deficit, the No. 9/10 Penn State women’s lacrosse team outscored No. 2 Florida by a 10-2 margin in the second half as the Nittany Lions shocked the Gators, 16-11, at Penn State Lacrosse Field Saturday afternoon.
Penn State (7-3, 2-0 ALC), which erupted for 16 markers against the nation’s second-ranked defense, captured its third straight win and toppled its highest ranked opponent since downing second-ranked North Carolina, 8-7, in overtime April 6, 2007. The Nittany Lions also improved to 2-0 in league play for the first time since 2005, while snapping Florida’s (13-1, 1-1 ALC) 24-game regular-season win streak.
Freshman Ally Heavens (Garnet Valley) had three goals and two draw controls for the Lions while defender Cat Layne (Villa Maria Academy) was a standout in holding down the potent Florida attack.
Rachel Hughes notched the game-winner with five minutes left as host Unionville claimed an 8-7 victory over Patterson Mill (MD) Saturday in non-league girls’ lacrosse.
The Indians improved to 1-2 after a tough overtime loss to Bishop Shanahan.
“This was a really big win for us,” said Unionville coach Wendy Landry. “In our last game we didn’t start playing until five minutes remained in the game. This time we fell behind, but the girls really picked it up and showed me something.”
Hughes finished with four goals and one assist, and Jillian Zubillaga had a goal and two assists.
