Thomas and Terps make us proud [Letter]

Thank you for that wonderful editorial about our University of Maryland women's basketball treasure, Alyssa Thomas and the team ("Remember her name," April 1). As an alumnus and season ticket holder, I have always wondered at the lack of coverage (one never sees the weekly rankings of the women's team, despite our local team usually ranked in the top 10) and the lack of fan support.

Season tickets are a bargain and the quality of play is top notch. If you were not at Comcast Center you missed a chance to watch the Terps almost beat Notre Dame and Connecticut this season. And by the way, these lady Terps are really student athletes. Check out their academic accomplishments.

With their berth in the Final Four, they have represented our flagship University of Maryland in a manner that should make all Marylanders proud.

Go Terps!

Kenneth Hoffman

    Field hockey's history in Arundel goes back even farther

    While I have the greatest respect and admiration for Lil Shelton and her accomplishments at Severna Park High School ("Girls' sports power reflects long-term national trend," Aug. 25), I feel the need to set the record straight. Field hockey was introduced to Anne Arundel Country in 1954 at Glen...

    Think the Red Line is expensive? What about all those cars?

    Ben Groff very articulately expressed many of the same sentiments I have about the Red Line and transit in general ("Why killing the Red Line was a mistake," Aug. 25). His emphasis on the negative aspects on car-based transportation is especially significant. I would add that the apparent convenience...

    Shouldn't we read the Iran deal before supporting it?

You are all taking the word of people that have a record of distorting the facts or...
