The MPSSAA extends congratulations to all of the schools that participated in this year's tournament and we appreciate your cooperation and support throughout as we all battled the lingering storm effects. Our sincerest gratitude to the State Boys' Soccer Committee, especially Director Bob Sheffler, and all of the region tournament directors for another outstanding job of planning leading up to this culminating event. Once again, we cannot thank UMBC enough for their hospitality, cooperation, and support in working with us to provide first class facilities for our soccer championships. And last but not least, thank you fans for your support. Hope to see you again next fall!
