LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Re: ‘Two Cornell Softball Players Dismissed From Team Day After 2019 Season Ends’
To the editor:
Parents, family and friends are deeply concerned about the conduct of Coach Julie Farlow ’97 and the culture she has created at Cornell softball. On the day after The Sun’s article was published, two team players were dismissed by Coach Farlow and another player quit the team. The players were called individually into meetings with Coach Farlow, two additional coaches and one individual from the Director of Athletics Office and informed they were being kicked off the team. What an incredible abuse of power imbalance through intimidation and domination — so many adults to a single player. Once injured, players are shunned, blamed and shamed publicly.
