Maryland celebrated its 378th anniversary on March 26th. “Maryland Day" celebrates the date Leonard Calvert founded a colony that would be hospitable to Catholics and all faiths. St. Mary's County is in the southernmost part of the state.
College rivalries are all about the competition. More traditional football or basketball rivalries are celebrated events attracting huge national audiences. Other rivalries might be less visible, but are competed with just as much intensity. One such rivalry, while not as long-standing as The Game between Harvard and Yale, is the ongoing chess duel between the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) and the University of Texas—Dallas (UTD).
