When Notre Dame Prep's lacrosse team wins games, its high-powered attack usually grabs the headlines. Not last night. The No. 2 Blazers' defense, anchored by Alex Piraino's 14 saves, fueled a 10-6 victory over No. 5 St. Mary's at Mt. Washington Field for their second Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference crown in three years. Piraino, a sophomore, made terrific saves all night. She stopped low shots early and snuffed well-placed shots all over the place in the second half.

Nathalie Piraino came to St. Matthew Roman Catholic Church in Northeast Baltimore four years ago seeking a permanent place of worship, yet even as the Rwanda-born woman grew more comfortable with parishioners she kept a big part of her life to herself -- that she had lost more than 100 family members to Rwanda's 1994 genocide, including her mother and seven siblings. "This question, `How are you doing?' I would say [to myself], `Do they really mean it?'" says the 48-year-old from Rosedale who left Rwanda for the United States in 1979 after marrying an American official of a relief organization.

Valerie Piraino left Rwanda when she was 4 and has never returned. "I've always wanted to go back, but it was such an abstract idea," said Piraino, a senior who graduated yesterday from the Maryland Institute College of Art. So when Piraino learned during her commencement ceremony that she won a $25,000 travel grant that will let her return to her homeland to work for a year, she began to cry even as her classmates broke into applause. "Most of my family was killed in the genocide, so the chance to go back is so overwhelming," she said after the ceremony, held at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.
