Maryland athletics celebrated Valentine’s Day with cards, poems & wins

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

Valentine’s Day was Thursday, and almost all of Maryland athletics got in on the festivities. It opened with a tweet from the whole department, featuring a jersey from nearly every sport in the shape of a heart and a brief poem.

Track and field was really feeling the love, dropping a bunch of Valentine’s Day-themed pictures and cards. Here’s the team heart formation.

Field hockey also got in on the Valentine’s Day cards, dropping this one featuring junior midfielder Madison Maguire on Twitter.

Gymnastics sent out a trio of cards for the holiday, featuring junior Tiara Wright, senior Shynelle Agaran and sophomore Emilie LeBlanc, respectively, along with some solid wordplay.

With its season starting this weekend, baseball dropped off four cards with junior pitcher Elliot Zoellner, junior outfielder Caleb Walls, senior infielder Taylor Wright and sophomore pitcher Mark DiLuia.

Men’s soccer used the day to wish a Happy Valentine’s Day to its 2018 National Championship trophy.

Meanwhile, women’s lacrosse grouped up for a team photo before a 17-12 win over No. 4 Florida ...

Hope that everyone had a good Valentine’s Day, and we wish you a happy belated one from the site. As Cory (Baxter) and the Boys would say, “Nothing feels better than feeling the love.”
