The MPSSAA appreciates the hard work and flexibility of our schools and athletic departments in completing the region meets on time in spite of an overabundance of rain. Everyone's spirit of cooperation allowed the State Champinships to take place as scheduled and we thank you! It also goes without saying how indebted we are to State Track and Field Committee members, State Committee Director Beth Shook, and the athletic department and staff at Morgan State University for the use of Hughes Stadium to hold our event. We immensely appreciate the cooperation and assistance we receive in holding an event of this magnitude. Hope to see everyone back on the track next spring!!
