GRSSC PLAYER OF THE MONTH: MATT WAGER
Matt is one of GRSSCs’ most beloved members. He even has the tattoo to prove it! This season he is part of our IMPACT Volleyball League on Tuesday nights. He and the mighty “Setting Ducks” are always a pleasure to watch. He and his lovey wife Kimber just welcomed a beautiful baby boy in November, and we couldn’t be more happy for them!

Tiger Woods continues to recover from a near fatal car crash in late February that left him with shattered tibia and fibula bones in his lower right leg. The 45 year old professional golfer rolled his car in California, and was pulled from the vehicle with the “jaws of life” according to the rescue team.
Detectives have determined a cause to the crash but have yet to release details out of respect for his privacy. We continue to pray for Tigers’ family and for a full recovery for the iconic golf pro
