"In sports, we are familiar with the saying "records are meant to be broken." While we may believe this to be true, there is likely to be a tentativeness about our convictions when a record is an impressive one. Such was the case in regard to exceeding our record result from last year's March Mania campaign. We all aspired for the total dollars to exceed the total from a year ago, yet we were also realistic and therefore a bit reserved in our optimism that 2022 would be the year. However, our Athletics Family of alumni, friends, parents, athletes and staff members came through in an extraordinary way, with an impressive new record for dollars. All I can think to say is THANK YOU and I am proud to be a part of this team!!"
