Thanks go out to all 16 region tournament directors for their efforts in directing the region tournament series leading up to the state tournament. It is a thankless job that is key to the overall tournament success. The MPSSAA also greatly appreciates the time and effort of the state tournament committee, led by Director Lynette Mitzel, many of whom worked the entire 3 days of the championship weekend. In addition to the state committee, a whole host of willing and dedicated workers, led by Tournament Director Diane George, helped make the weekend run like a well-oiled machine in providing a lasting lifetime memory for all of the participants. Last, but not least, we are indebted to Towson University's Athletic Department and staff for permitting us to utilize their beautiful SECU Arena and the Towson University campus for this event. Our inaugural tournament is in the books and we cannot wait to come back next year to make it even better!
