A group of Valparaiso University alumni has sent an open letter to university leadership regarding what it calls a “short-sighted” decision to cut the school’s men’s soccer program. The authors say they and other current and former student-athletes, coaches, and supporters are “utterly perplexed and disappointed” by the move. Valpo announced last month it was discontinuing it’s men’s soccer and men’s tennis programs. The group has asked the university to respond to the letter by the end of the day Friday.
