LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Re: ‘Softball Players Detail Years of Mistreatment by Coach, Neglect by Cornell Athletics’
To the editor:
We are writing today to express our support for head Coach Julie Farlow ’97, as alumni of the Cornell Softball program. In a recent article published in The Sun, Coach Farlow was characterized as a leader who lacked integrity and genuine concern for the emotional, mental and physical well being of her players. As alumni who have played for, played with, and worked alongside Coach Farlow over the 20 years of her involvement with Cornell softball, we find this characterization objectively false, and find that it runs counter to our own experience as members of the program. The Cornell softball team has a long history of excellence and achievement both on and off the field. This history has been achieved by setting incredibly high standards for players.
