Here are the final approved qualifiers for lacrosse and girls spring soccer for the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school years; they were adopted at the PIAA Board of Directors’ meeting in May.

The “qualifiers” files show the math the PIAA uses to determine the number of qualifiers from each district to the PIAA championship in that sport; the process is known as proportional representation. The brackets show the pairings for PIAA team and individual championships in each sport where applicable.

It’s been quite a day thus far. Got cut off by a hay truck on Rt. 39, then forgot to buy Advil for my boogered-up left foot that I injured GOLFING.

Then the Hersheypark Stadium wireless wasn’t working, so it took 10 minutes to get online. Fun, fun, fun.

Bottom line: There’s 5 minutes left in the first half of the second PIAA Girls Lacrosse championship, and Radnor, which is on fire hitting the net, leads Springfield-Delco 7-3.

And I’m going to be honest. This is the first high school girls lacrosse game I’ve ever attended. Ever. So if you want to follow an update from someone who actually knows what he’s talking about, click onto Chris Goldberg’s updates at here. Chris knows his stuff. Me? I get stuck behind hay trucks.

But we’ll give it the ol’ Delaware County try just the same:

OK, now it’s 8-3, Radnor, after a goal high by Courtney Campbell

Radnor is icing the ball … Under a minute now

That’s it … Radnor wins its second straight PIAA title, 14-7 … Radnor keeper Annie Woehling was outstanding, making several saves and keeping Springfield at arm’s length throughout the game
