We would like to extend our utmost appreciation the members of the State Tennis Committee, led by Jim Rodriguez, for their tireless efforts in setting up and running not only the region tourneys but the State Tournament as well. Thanks too to our friends in the University of Maryland's Campus Recreation Services for allowing us to hold our event at the Cole Fieldhouse Tennis courts and for their first class assistance throughout our event. We are looking forward to an even better tournament next year. Until then, best wishes to all for a safe and relaxing summer!
