A debt of gratitude goes out to the University of Maryland-Baltimore County Athletic Department and their hard-working staff for the superior cooperation and assistance provided to us prior to and throughout the State Finals. The MPSSAA would also like to extend our sincerest appreciation to our State Girls' Lacrosse Committee, led by Director Melba Williams, for their sweat equity in directing the region tournaments and staffing the State Finals. Thanks, too, to the Principal and Athletic Director at each of the three State Semifinal school sites for allowing us to host games at their facilities. There is no tournament without the efforts of these key individuals and we are fortunate to have each of them on our "team". Best wishes for an enjoyable off-season and we hope to see everyone back on the turf next spring!
