Last week, Towson University unceremoniously cut their baseball and men’s soccer teams. On Friday morning, baseball and soccer players were told there would be a meeting at 10am at the Field House. Some players were in class and others simply didn’t have enough time to get there. At 10 o’clock, Towson President Maravene Loeschke told the players who attended that their programs would be eliminated. She then left with a police escort.
Baseball coach Mike Gottlieb and soccer coach Frank Olszewski, who have been involved with the school for more than 70 years combined, will be terminated in June. That afternoon, the baseball players blacked out the school’s name with tape.
