     Our deepest appreciation to the University of Maryland's Campus Recreation Services for the use of Eppley Recreation Center.  We are so fortunate to have the level of cooperation and assistance from Carrie Tupper and her staff.  Many thanks to the State Swimming Committee lead by Earl Hawkins, many of whom ran region meets in addition to working the state meets.  Somehow these hard-working educators find the time to take on these additional responsibilities, and we are grateful. We will look forward to seeing everyone back in the pool next year!
