The Terp men’s soccer team is traveling to Georgetown this afternoon. But it’s more than #6 Maryland’s big game against a local rival and the #16 squad. On Saturday night, starting defender Alex Lee was struck by a car as he was crossing a street in D.C. (I’m surprised it wasn’t Route 1.) Luckily, he’s expected to recover, but for now he’s hospitalized in stable condition.
The team was already playing with heavy hearts after the Oct. 5 passing of longtime Terp athletics supporter Jack Heise, for whom a soccer scholarship is named.
Good luck to the team today against Georgetown and, more importantly, to Alex Lee in his recovery from the injury. Go Terps!
Update: The Terps beat Georgetown 2-1, and Alex Lee was released from the hospital. Kudos and respect to all.
