Letter From Maine President

Dear Editor:
Back home now after participating in the NCAA Regional Tournament, members of the University of Maine baseball team can not stop talking about the wonderful reception they received during their trip to Oxford. I write, on behalf on the UMaine community, to express my appreciation for the warm hospitality extended by fans, the Ole Miss players and coaches, and others involved in the tournament.It is not easy to travel hundreds of miles to play against top-notch competition, but we were very proud of the Black Bears' performance. I have no doubt that part of the reason they competed so well was the support they received in the Ole Miss community. The overall experience for the players, coaches, staff and UMaine fans was enhanced significantly by the wonderful people they encountered in Mississippi.

Sincerely,Robert A. Kennedy
President, University of Maine
