2019 Fall Splat is done and what a weekend for Shane Diaz!!
Well, the 2019 Fall Splat Tournament is a wrap!!!!
I can't tell you how incredible this young lady is as she works harder than any racquetball player I have ever known. I wanted to verbally express this at the tournament while I was presenting the Scholarship to Shane but my emotions got to me....again....and couldn't get the words out. Okay, I admit, I'm a delicate flower when it comes to things close to my heart. Shane is an amazing young lady and this is only the beginning for her. And a huge shout out to Shane's coach, George Bustos. George, keep up the awesome work with Shane as we all know you love doing what you do.
I wanted to thank all the players for participating in the tournament as all your entry fees went straight into Shane's Scholarship. I also wanted to thank those of you who donated money towards this scholarship. It wouldn't have been possible without everyone's contributions.
You know me, I can't leave it without asking everyone to find a way to give back to the sport we all love. This can be done by volunteering at tournaments, donating money, donating your time, getting involved at your local club to push the sport even more, hold little shout outs, hold huge tournaments, work with the college you graduated from or the one by you as many of these schools have racquetball clubs and for the ones that don't, that is perfect opportunity to work with the university to start one. That is how we can grow this sport. It has to be at the grass roots.
