I offer my sincere and heartfelt congratulations to the Towson University baseball team on their hard-fought Colonial Athletic Association tournament championship. This has been a difficult season for these young men and it is a tribute to the coaching staff, the senior leadership and every member of this team that they were able to play their best baseball when it mattered most. They demonstrated courage, commitment, determination and perseverance.
It is often said that life isn’t about what happens to you, it’s about how you respond to it. The Towson University baseball team proved that old adage to be true this past Memorial Day weekend at Veterans Memorial Park in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
And, as proud as the entire Towson University family is of the baseball team’s success, their season is not over. They will be back at it Friday when they meet Florida Atlantic University in the Chapel Hill Regional of the NCAA tournament. It is the first time since 1991 that a Towson baseball team has competed in the NCAA tournament—another “point of pride” for this exceptional university and its excellent athletic program.
Two weeks ago at our Golden Paw athletic awards dinner, where our student-athletes were recognized for their outstanding achievements over the past year, team captains from our record-breaking six CAA championship squads each carried their respective trophies to the stage so they could be proudly displayed before the formal program began. Thanks to the Towson baseball team and their phenomenal performance, we now have a seventh trophy to add to the display.
Congratulations again to Towson baseball on their success thus far and “Go Tigers!”
Dr. Maravene Loeschke, President of Towson University
