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 Earl Hawkins and Tournament Director Greg LeGrand. In addition to the state committee, a whole host of willing and dedicated workers 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 the University of Maryland's Athletic Department and staff for permitting us to utilize Comcast Center and the college campus for this event. Enjoy the offseason and see everyone back on the hardwood next year!
