Our thanks again to all of the folks behind the scenes that worked to make the revised tournament schedule work out so smoothly and to the University of Maryland's Campus Recreation Services for working with us to reschedule this event. We appreciate all eight of the region tournament directors and site directors for managing and hosting their respective tournaments. Thanks, too, to the administration and staff members of those schools for having these events.
A most hearty thank you and sincere appreciation to the members of the State Wrestling Committee, led by Dr. Duke Beattie, for their tireless efforts throughout the tournament. You will not see a more visible or harder working state committee than this one come tournament time. Enjoy the off- season and come back refreshed and ready next winter!
