Many thanks to the tireless work of the State Volleyball Committee and region tournament directors for coordinating the play leading up to the State Tournament. Our deepest appreciation goes out to all of the tournament workers for their dedication and assistance over six long nights of semifinals and finals play. We would also like to thank our friends at the University of Maryland College Park's Campus Recreation Services for their unparalleled cooperation and assistance in providing Ritchie Coliseum to us.
