MSO Gifted $1,000 From
Kentlands Foundation
Thanks to our long-time partners at the Kentlands Foundation, which sponsors and hosts our 5k race. At the December MSO board meeting, Rob Gatterson, chairman of the Kentlands Foundation board of directors, presented us with a $1,000 beneficiary check. MSO board chair Carmen Campbell accepted the donation. We couldn't do all that we do without great support from sponsors like the Kentlands Foundation.
Program Helps Athletes With Senior Games Costs
Know someone unable to compete in the National Senior Games in Albuquerque because of a life-changing situation and/or financial challenge? “The Hand Up From Humana Scholarship” program will award 10 grants to help those in need. Nominees from Maryland should be submitted to us, and we'll forward the information to the National Senior Games. Deadline for nominations is Feb. 28. For details and application, visit http://bit.ly/2Dgcsqo.
Find a Doubles Partner

Thanks to the folks at the National Senior Games Association, you can now find a way to play through a central database. Go to www.NSGA.com, look under the “State Games” drop-down menu and click on the team/partner finder section. You will need to have or create a login to the National Games website,then you can create a post in your sport and begin looking for a team or partner. It's fast and simple!


Hall of Famers, Honorees
To Be Feted April 28
For the first time since 2014, MSO will have a new class of Hall of Famers and winners of our two service awards. The luncheon ceremony will be held April 28 at Margaret Schweinhaut Senior Center in Silver Spring. The time and other details will be announced later.

“We are supported by many athletes and organizations who deserve to be recognized for either their stellar performances or contributions to the execution of our state senior games,” said MSO Board Chairman Carmen Campbell.

Along with the HOFers, we will present the MSO Commission Citation Award for distinguished contributions on behalf of the Maryland Senior Olympics, and the Robert G. Zeigler Service Award for outstanding service to the local, state and national senior games movement.

With 78 New MSO Records,
2018 Was a Banner Year
The 2018 season was one of our best with 1,692 participants (up 35 percent over 2017) and setting 78 new MSO state records. Track and field had a whopping 45 records, led by sprinter Rose Green, 80, of Upper Marlboro with five; swimming had 17 new records, four by Hall of Famer Nancy Brown, 80, of Pasadena. Mrs. Brown now holds 33 MSO swimming records over 13 events and five age groups.

Athletes seeking goals and inspiration should visit our updated Records page, where you will find a complete list of our best performances dating to 1980. There's also a chart of the oldest-standing MSO marks. Very cool stuff!
