She grew up in Elkins Park and Blue Bell, studied at Juilliard, and was in year three of a postgraduate fellowship at Carnegie Hall, performing chamber music around the city and elsewhere.

Paul Rabil isn't as dominating in indoor lacrosse as Sidney Crosby is in the NHL. But he's trying to get there. Thanks to a blockbuster six-player trade with Rochester last month, Rabil will lead the Wings as they open their National Lacrosse League season Friday night against the Buffalo Bandits at the Wells Fargo Center. Rabil, 27, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound transition player, is regarded as lacrosse's best outdoor player, and his indoor game is improving. "Paul's the face of field lacrosse, but he's relatively new to the indoor game and still learning it," said Johnny Mouradian, the Wings coach and general manager.

Carmen Basilio, a genial onion farmer's son who wrested the world middleweight boxing crown from Sugar Ray Robinson in 1957 and lost an equally epic, razor-edge rematch six months later, died Wednesday at age 85 in Rochester, N.Y. Edward Brophy, executive director of the Boxing Hall of Fame in Upstate New York, said Basilio died at a Rochester hospital, where he was being treated for pneumonia. Mr. Basilio lived in the Rochester suburb of Irondequoit and was among the first class of Hall of Fame inductees in 1990, a group that includes Robinson, Muhammad Ali, Rocky Marciano, Joe Louis , and Jake LaMotta.

ALLENTOWN - An inning before the pork race and an inning after the 40-something man cartwheeled on the infield grass, Chase Utley crushed a home run over the right-field fence. Rochester rightfielder Andres Blanco turned to watch the ball soar, and the standing-room-only crowd beyond the 345-foot fence looked up to watch it fly over. Even Utley, who has been straight-faced throughout his rehab, showed a little emotion after hammering the 2-1 pitch. He rounded first base as the 10,100 fans at Coca-Cola Park erupted, and gave a smirk.
