On behalf of the MIAA Cross Country & Track Committee I want to THANK each of you for the role you play in making our MIAA Divisional & All-State Indoor Track Meets a success. In talking to Art Dulong recently, he made mention to me that he considers the MA Track Officials the best in the nation, and since he has been to many events across the country, he knows what he is talking about and I agree with him. Three things stand out to me – your knowledge, your concern for each student-athlete, and your willingness to assist and work with your fellow officials. Watching an Indoor Meet is a pleasure, from beginning to end – and during this past Div. 2 meet on Sunday, 2/19, I had the opportunity to watch the process in the gym (Rich Riley was giving out the awards) from when the student-athletes are called, to when they walk out in their heats. Each part of our event works because each official is doing their job and respecting the work of each other. A HUGE THANK YOU, and please know I appreciate all that you do for our student-athletes and our sport. 

My best, Dick B
