Duquesne University swimmer Doug McWhorter, a freshman from
Charlottesville, Va., couldn't hide his anger Monday night; try as he
might, he couldn't veil the contempt festering inside.
"I loved everything about Duquesne," he said, "Up until today, and now part of me hates it."
Also, I got an interesting e-mail from a reader on Monday night. It was an e-mail he received just last week for a fundraiser for the baseball team.
Here is a portion of it:
An Evening with Pittsburgh Baseball's Finest: Proceeds benefit Duquesne Baseball Friday, January 29 - Join Duquesne Baseball head coach Mike Wilson and some of the greatest minds in Pittsburgh baseball history at an exclusive fundraising event benefiting the Dukes Baseball team.
