To the vast majority of the world, it was just another intramural soccer game, played on a Friday afternoon before a meager crowd at Towson University. Unless you'd followed the fortunes of the Towson men's soccer program, the names Grundei, Toribio and Mensah wouldn't have meant much. You'd have missed the mixture of joy and sorrow in their meeting for the university's intramural championship. You see, these players thought they'd spend this fall striving for an NCAA tournament berth, just like their peers at Maryland, Navy and UMBC, who will play in second-round games Sunday.

Disappointed when she placed fourth in the high jump at the Class 1A state indoor championships last year, Kaitlin Isabell used it as motivation for the outdoor season that followed, where she won the state title. So when the Sparrows Point girls soccer team was down a goal with seven minutes left in last Saturday's Class 1A state title game against Brunswick Isabell, a senior defender and captain, had no doubt her team would pull through. The Pointers scored twice before the final whistle to claim a thrilliing 2-1 win to earn the program's first state championship.

It was very nice of Bob Leffler to paint his big picture of what many of us call the mistake in progress at Towson University regarding eliminating the 91-year soccer program ("The big picture for TU," April 16). As an alumnus who has a consecutive giving record since graduation in 1957, as a player on the soccer team for four years, as a member and former officer of the Towson University Hall of Fame, and as an activist on behalf of the institution through the years, I still very much care about my school.

Mike Gottlieb feels like the Death Row inmate who gets a last-minute reprieve from the governor. Only in this case, the governor came up with $300,000 out of the state budget to keep Gottlieb's Towson University baseball team alive for a couple more years. So there was Gottlieb on Wednesday afternoon at Towson's Schuerholz Park, standing in the bright sunshine and biting wind before the Tigers' 5-3 loss to Navy, marveling at what a close call it had been for his team. "I remember growing up in the 60's," he was saying now, "and there was a Superman episode where they found out a guy who was on Death Row was innocent.

Towson University baseball could live to fight another year after Gov. Martin O'Malley included an additional $300,000 in his 2014 budget to help the university sort through difficulties with its athletic funding. The baseball program had been slated for elimination after this season until O'Malley became interested in its fate. An O'Malley spokeswoman said Monday that the appropriation, still subject to General Assembly approval, resulted from a one-on-one meeting last week between the governor and Towson president Maravene Loeschke.

My alma mater made it official this past Friday: Towson University has made the despicable choice to drop the mens' soccer and baseball programs. The decision-makers had the audacity to inform the student ballplayers, their parents, and the community it was due to Title IX mandates (which basically calls for equity among the genders in our NCAA colleges and universities). Being in its off-season, the mens' soccer program was cut immediately. The baseball team will play out the remainder of its season, but many players on the team now have to make contingency plans about where to further their college baseball passion.
