Radnor rallies to capture first Central League title in school history

As far as the Radnor girls’ basketball team has come this season, they weren't going to let a little thing like a nine-point deficit in the third quarter be too much to overcome.

Radnor came storming back in the fourth quarter to beat Conestoga, 47-39, at Marple Newtown on Monday and clinch its first Central League title in school history. After starting the season 1-4, the Red Raiders have won 17 of their last 19 games.

Not a traditional basketball powerhouse, Radnor’s four senior starters – Taylor Quinn, Shannon Quinn, Lindsay Price and Kyla Crombie -- will be done with their basketball careers when the season ends. The Quinn sisters will both play Division I lacrosse.

“(The championship) will be a legacy for them to leave,” coach Mark Jordan said. “I wouldn’t trade my girls for anyone.”

Down 31-22 late in the third, Katie Jordan tied it on a three-pointer in the fourth. Crombie and Myonie Williamson each scored four points in the final period as the Red Raiders went on a 19-8 run.

Shannon Quinn scored a team-high 12. Williamson added nine, Price had eight, and Crombie scored seven.

“Even when we were down, we felt like we were still in the game,” Jordan said. “ Our mantra is to attack the rim, and we kept attacking, attacking, attacking.”

It showed up in trips to the free-throw line, as Radnor went 18 for 25 in the game.
