The Sun reports that Towson University Athletic Director Mike Waddell is recommending the elimination of the baseball and soccer programs ("Baseball, men's soccer target of cuts," Oct. 3). By cutting baseball and soccer, Mr. Waddell would save about $800,000. Clearly, the label "bean counter" should be placed on Mr. Waddell. The label allows Mr. Waddell to ignore logic, courage, tradition, integrity, and wisdom as factors in the decision. I am proud to say that I played soccer for another athletic director at Towson by the name of Dr. Donald "Doc" Minnegan.

A week into the new school year, Broadneck center midfielder Emily Lord is loving her senior gig. She's quick to say it's completely different. She's finished with her classes at 10:30 a.m. every day. In her third year on varsity, she is a captain for the No. 6 Bruins. And she's learning a new position after playing her first two years at forward. It has been a lot to take in, and Lord is excited and primed for a banner year. Lord showed a fine ability to distribute the ball last season - finishing with eight assists to go with three goals - and she'll have the chance to set up teammates even more this fall with the ball at her feet more in the middle.

The elimination of the men's baseball and soccer programs at Towson State University is a tough pill to swallow ("Towson president: Cutbacks of baseball, soccer painful but necessary," March 15). It is a great disappointment to fans, the administration, friends of the university and the athletes in these two programs. Yet it is the only viable option if Towson is to comply with Title IX. Athletic Director Mike Waddell spent a year studying alternatives to cutting the two sports. University President Maravene Loeschke then appointed a task force to review his recommendations.
