Tales from the Maryland Terrapins will relive the most profound memories from more than 100 years of athletics at the University of Maryland in College Park. Authored by David Ungrady, a former two-sport athlete at the school, the book will include a series of first-person anecdotes that reflect the joys and challenges of his athletic career as well as the rich history of collegiate athletics at the school. While it was still the Maryland Agricultural College, the university staged its first intercollegiate athletic competition in 1888, playing baseball games against St. John's College and the Naval Academy. The first organized competition for football was in 1892. The athletic program began to flourish early in the 1900s. Men's basketball began shortly after the turn of the century, in 1904, and men's lacrosse began in 1910. Women's sports such as basketball, rifling and soccer started as intramural sports in the 1920s, and basketball started about 20 years later. The women's rifle team won several titles after it was first organized in 1922. By the 1940s, the men's intercollegiate program boasted such national-caliber programs as baseball, boxing, football, lacrosse, track and field, and soccer. Women's teams started competing intercollegiate competition in 1960 and later blossomed during the last quarter of the 20th century.
