Save men's soccer at Mount St. Mary's
Our son Peter is the goalkeeper for the men's soccer team at Mount St. Mary's University and recently completed the final collegiate game of his career. While watching that game on a cold and rainy day in St. Francis, Pa., we never thought we would also be witnessing the final game of the men's soccer program! How disturbing it was for us to learn of the university's decision to terminate the program. What is even more disturbing is the way the entire matter was handled. The sadness we felt watching what we knew was Peter's last game can't even compare to the sadness the other parents must now feel since they didn't even know that it was the final game for their sons, too.
