We would like to tip our caps to the State Softball Committee for their effort and assistance throughout the season especially with the region and state tournaments. Likewise, our appreciation goes out to the Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks for making the Bachman Park Complex available to us for our state semifinals. A special thank you to the folks at the University of Maryland Athletic Department for their cooperation and assistance in making the Robert E. Taylor Softball facility available to us for hosting our State Finals. It is the best softball venue in the state, bar none and we are grateful for its usage.
We also need to thank all of the coaches, officials and spectators for the support you give to our tournament. In addition, we would like to extend our congratulations to each and every participant. Keep honing those skills and remember that only perfect practice makes perfect!
