Terps men's teams aren't the only winners

December 29, 2009

This morning on Dec. 27, I was enjoying reading your ranking of the Top 10 sports stories of the past 10 years. As I read over the third-ranked story of the University of Maryland men's basketball team winning the 2002 national championship, I eagerly looked down the list to see where you ranked the 2006 women's basketball national championship. Imagine my disappointment to see that it did not make your list, but was relegated to only an honorable mention. In fact, the only "female" athlete to count for anything in 10 years was a horse!

The general public will never develop an appreciation for the skill of talented and entertaining women athletes unless the sports media begin to respect and recognize women's contributions to sports.Carol P. Saucier, Cockeysville
