That fantastic time of year is upon us and it’s going to be glorious. No, stop it. Not prom and graduation. Those minor things can take a backseat to playoff lacrosse as the District One tournaments get underway today. Five boys teams and six girls teams advance to the state tournament. To get you ready, here are some previews.

The Daily Local‘s Andy Edwards and I threw a bunch of stuff at a wall and we’ll see what sticks. Or as some might say, we made fancy “predictions” that will likely get people mad at us.

Radnor’s boys and girls made history by becoming the first school to claim both No. 1 seeds, plus a game-by-game look at the Delco first-round matchups.

Edwards takes a look at the Chester County side of things, leading with a wild ride through the Ches-Mont League.

I flew solo on the girls predictions. This is going to be one heck of a tournament. I could see six or seven teams winning it.

The lead story from the boys side also has quotes from Radnor’s Lyndsey Britton and Abby Junior.

Here’s a breakdown of the Delco matchups.

Upper Merion has a tall task against top-seeded Radnor in the first round, but according to Dennis C. Way of the Times Herald, just making it here is huge for the Vikings after a 10-year playoff drought.
