Don't forget that you can relive every exciting moment thanks to the on-demand viewing and DVD purchases available within 72 hours of the event on the NFHS Network. Many thanks to all of the region meet directors and region meet sites for conducting and hosting these preliminary events. We would also like to thank the staff at the Prince George's Sports and Learning Complex for their support and cooperation in holding and rescheduling the State meets at their one of a kind facility. We also owe a debt of gratitude to the State Indoor Track Committee led by Director Joe Sargent, especially District 6 rep Gerard Filosa for compiling all of the meet results throughout the season. Another example of the outstanding folks we have working behind the scenes to provide the best opportunities possible for the student-athletes in our public schools!
