In the middle of its men's lacrosse season opener at Loyola yesterday, 12th-ranked Towson University was searching for a spark, and junior midfielder Brian Vetter delivered it. Vetter scored a game-high four goals, including three in the second half, to lead the visiting Tigers to a come-from-behind, 9-8 victory before 1,492 at Geppi-Aikens Field. The victory was Towson's third straight over its Charles Street rival, and it dropped Loyola to 0-2. After taking a 2-0 lead before the Greyhounds had touched the ball, Towson weathered a five-goal outburst in the first quarter that put Loyola in front 5-3. After that, Towson gradually gained control of the contest.

Annapolis junior attackman Brian Vetter has a running rivalry with classmate Kelsey Mays, who plays the same position for the Panthers' girls lacrosse team. "We live five houses apart. We've played lacrosse together since we were 2," said Vetter, who has considered Mays his best friend since the two were in diapers. "If she gets so many goals, I'm going to try to match it." Vetter had four goals and two assists for a game-high six points in last night's 16-5 Class 3A-2A boys lacrosse state semifinal win over visiting Seneca Valley of Montgomery County.

In a large organization such as the Carroll County education system, it is easy to forget that individuals do matter. The retirement of Donald Vetter, the social studies supervisor in the Carroll school system, seems an appropriate occasion to point out the difference one person can make in a large bureaucracy.Mr. Vetter is one of the 46 people retiring from the Carroll County public school system. All of these people have contributed in their own way to the education of the community's youth -- from teachers who instructed students to cafeteria workers who prepared lunch.

When Michael A. Jacoby entered a Baltimore County courtroom last month to be sentenced for killing 20-year-old Jessica Vetter in an accident while driving drunk on York Road last year, the victim's father says he was taken aback by how frail and remorseful Jacoby looked. "He was not the monster that I expected to see that day," Jeffrey Vetter said. "He's an average kid who made a bad choice." Yesterday, in an unusual hearing that brought the two men back to the county courthouse, Vetter told a judge he had forgiven Jacoby and asked that Jacoby be released from the sentence of 18 months in the county detention center he received on June 10 after pleading guilty to manslaughter by vehicle.

Naval Academy officials expressed concern yesterday over a decline in minority applicants from last year, though the decline was consistent with an overall drop in applications to the Annapolis military college. Minority applications for the academy's class of 2009 fell 22.5 percent from the year before, the school's dean of admissions told the school's oversight board. Although that drop only slightly exceeds an overall 21.9 percent decline in applications to the school, Dean David A. Vetter said the academy will step up its minority recruitment efforts beginning this summer.

Whether you hail him or damn him for it, Donald Vetter is the man who first got his colleagues at Carroll County public schools to look into a new trend called outcomes-based education.And now he's retiring -- packing up and leaving his co-workers in the midst of an educational revolution that has roused some vehement opposition in Carroll County.But Mr. Vetter believes that it's time for him to move on, leaving implementation of the revolution to his successor.A lot of teachers and administrators are sorry to see him go. As Carroll's social studies supervisor, Mr. Vetter has directed the program for all grades in all schools for the past 23 years, updating it along the way to include more of the perspective of American-Indian and African-American cultures, and to include more study of the 20th century.

COLLEGE PARK - -Maryland basketball guard Greivis Vasquez is set to attend an NBA pre-draft camp in Chicago this month, but those who know the player say he has not decided whether to leave school for his senior season. Vasquez declared for the draft three weeks ago. After leading the Terps last season in scoring, rebounding and assists, Vasquez has attracted the interest of a number of NBA clubs, including the Washington Wizards. But the 6-foot-6 guard from Caracas, Venezuela, remains enrolled at Maryland, and he has preserved his option to return next season by not hiring an agent.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- This was not your typical Phillips-Juraska family reunion. How many reunions do you know that feature a football jersey being burned to a crisp? Then again, the return of running back Willis McGahee yesterday to Ralph Wilson Stadium in a Ravens uniform had that kind of tone. In Lot 2, an old No. 21 jersey was spread out on the ground, with a piece of wood acting as a hanger. "Willis on a stick," said Matt Phillips, who grew up in Parkville and organized the trip up from Baltimore with his wife, the former Kathy Juraska, his sister Jacky, and their father, Jack.

Brian Vetter still has the blistering shot that drew the interest of numerous high-level Division I lacrosse coaches when he was a star at Annapolis High School. But the Towson University junior midfielder is determined to add more dimensions to his game. He already has expanded his game in the classroom. After allowing his high school grades to slip until most recruiters lost interest, Vetter enrolled in a rigorous postgraduate school in Maine for a year. Vetter's recovery is No. 11 Towson's gain.

The pipeline between the tiny private school in Rockville known for its basketball prowess and the huge state university in College Park with a resurgent men's basketball team was opened last year by the unlikeliest of players. Freshman guard Greivis Vasquez, who came to Montrose Christian from Venezuela, became the first Stu Vetter-coached player in more than a decade to choose Maryland. Two more, guard Adrian Bowie and forward Shane Walker, will join him in College Park next season. Those who suspected a dispute between Vetter and Maryland coach Gary Williams see Vasquez as the ultimate olive branch, but the two coaches insist there wasn't a problem between them after Exree Hipp's career fizzled with the Terps in the mid-1990s.

Amy Tan and James Baldwin are beginning to pop up alongside Dickens and Shakespeare on the reading lists at Carroll high schools.They aren't replacing all the "dead white Anglo-Saxon males" that students will need to be familiar with by the time they're in college, said Barry Gelsinger, supervisor of English and foreign languages for county schools.But students will also read prominent writers who are Asian-American, like Ms. Tan, or African-American, like Mr. Baldwin.The county's Community Relations Commission last week invited Mr. Gelsinger and Donald Vetter, supervisor of social studies, to detail how schools are working to integrate other cultures into the curriculum -- and not just during Black History Month.
