DUBLIN, Ireland -- From Grafton Street below and Westmoreland and O'Connell streets above, the early-morning traffic of cars, bicycles and pedestrians flows steadily around the outer walls of Trinity College.At midpoint, between the statues of Edmund Burke and Oliver Goldsmith that oversee this rush-hour bustle, the splendid facade of the college is pierced by a small archway, through which throngs of cyclists and strollers pass on their way to jobs or classrooms.It has been this way for centuries at Trinity College, where every morning a passing parade of Dublin life moves out of the urban turbulence into the green and calm haven of what one 18th-century writer called the "rich enclosures and luxuriant fields" of Trinity.

Revenge was oh so sweet for Salisbury's women's lacrosse team, especially when it came with a national championship. The Sea Gulls polished off a 23-0 season with a 12-5 victory and the Division III national championship by avenging last year's title-game loss to Trinity College in a battle of undefeated teams Sunday at Stevenson University's Mustangs Stadium. "We've been cheering 'Redemption' all year and 'Road to redemption' and that word has really meant a lot to us," said Sea Gulls senior attacker Lauren Feusahrens, who scored five goals.

WASHINGTON -- Private colleges, often rich in both money and knowledge, have long faced a thorny question: Are they morally obliged to contribute to their local communities, especially if the residents are in urgent need of help?The answer is a resounding yes, according to one mayor-turned-college-president who is spearheading an effort to explore new ways that schools can help revitalize their neighborhoods."The challenge is to resist the impulse to build walls," said Evan S. Dobelle, president of Trinity College in Hartford, Conn.

Gavin Floyd, once a baseball star at Mount St. Joseph's and now a pitcher for the Chicago White Sox, recently used his good fortune from a productive career to purchase a 24-year-old college student the gift of a lifetime. Floyd bought Tim Smith, a student at Trinity College in Florida, a new pair of legs. It's a touching story. Smith was born without legs, but it didn't stop him from playing sports and climbing rocks. He would remove his prosthetic legs -- made functional by duct tape, Velcro and a lot of oil -- and move around on his stumps.

Melissa Kolb had no visions of grandeur four years ago when she chose a basketball career at Hood College. She expected little more than to be playing in a cozy gym amid a family-type atmosphere at a lower level Division III women's program. The bright lights of an NCAA tournament game were far beyond her imagination, as was the possibility of becoming the school's all-time leading scorer. "I just want- ed to play basketball and try not to get hurt," said Kolb on Tuesday from her dormitory room at the Frederick school, less than 24 hours after she scored 19 in a 90-46 rout of Wilson (Pa.)

Robert Lewis, an innovative designer and sculptor of stained glass whose work graces the Smithsonian Institution, died March 14 of prostate cancer at his Northwest Washington residence. He was 71.In a career that spanned more than a half-century, perhaps Mr. Lewis' most unusual and notable piece was the glass sculpture he created in 1961 for the Smithsonian's Hall of Glass and Ceramics, which is part of the Museum of History and Technology."Innovative in technique and construction, it consists of fluid shapes of flat, stained glass mounted on a concave half-cylinder," said his nephew, David Lewis, a Baltimore artist.
