A finesse player who can play inside and outside, Vails is averaging 6.3 points and 4.3 points in her first varsity season for the Wildcats.

Just about everything in Aspen, Colo., is a cut above average, so it follows that Aspen's finest should patrol the town's star-studded streets in a ride classier than the usual Ford Crown Victoria police cruisers. Since the 1970s, the 27-officer Aspen Police Department has driven a fleet of Saab sedans. But soon the department plans to trade up to Volvo SUVs, a move echoing nearby Vail, where the Swedish-made Volvo has become the official town vehicle. Aspen Mayor Helen Klanderud said the higher-end police vehicles aren't really about maintaining an upscale image, but rather are an effort to be at the head of the pack environmentally.

MA BELL is dying. Over the course of a century and more, the old gal became the motherly persona of a company, American Telephone and Telegraph, which at one time was the largest, richest corporation in the world. As late as 1981, just three years before federal courts ordered the AT&T monopoly broken, a historian predicted that "the continuing dominance of AT&T in the world of telephony seems inevitable." Frail and failing, Ma was devoured just the other day by one of her own offspring, SBC Communications Inc., once the smallest of the Baby Bells, now a jaunty adolescent that is the biggest operator in the bewildering field of Internet, broadband, wireless, satellite, cable and even plain old telephones attached to plain old land lines.

The Maryland Fireballs overcame high altitudes and their Rocky Mountain hosts to claim the under-17 title at the Vail Lacrosse Shootout held last week in Vail, Colo. After falling to a physical Texas team in the tournament opener, the Fireballs ran off nine straight wins, culminating in a 12-7 win over defending champion Colorado in the final. That win gave the Baltimore-area team its first championship in four trips to the annual Vail event that attracts teams nationwide. "When you take a first knock in an elimination tournament, it would have been really easy for that group to fold.

A Brooklyn Park man received the maximum sentence yesterday for killing his infant daughter, in a case the prosecutor said was "justice for Jennifer." Before Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Nancy Davis-Loomis sentenced Rocael Vail, 25, to 30 years in the killing of Jennifer Nicole Vail last fall, Vail - an illegal Guatemalan immigrant - said through an interpreter: "I had no intention of harming my daughter. I am really very sorry." But evidence, such as ribs healing from breaks, indicated that the child had been beaten before Sept.

A father who had grown so annoyed by his infant daughter's crying that he punched and shook her over two days pleaded guilty yesterday to causing the baby's death. Assistant State's Attorney Laura S. Kiessling said she will ask Anne Arundel County Circuit Judge Nancy Davis-Loomis for the maximum sentence of 30 years for Rocael Vail, 25, of Brooklyn Park for child abuse by a parent that results in death. "I wish I could ask for more time," the prosecutor said. Jennifer Nicole Vail, nearly 2 months old and weighing a little less than 15 pounds, died of extensive and severe head injuries, including five skull fractures, and the bleeding and torn tissue that signal shaken-baby syndrome.

A 2-month-old girl taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital on Saturday with a fractured skull and internal injuries - apparently from a beating in her family's Brooklyn Park home - died late yesterday afternoon, Anne Arundel County police said. The infant's father, Rocael Vail, 24, described by authorities as an illegal immigrant from Guatemala, was arrested yesterday evening on charges including child abuse and assault. A murder charge has not been filed in the case because authorities are awaiting an autopsy today by the state medical examiner's office, police said.
