    Matt,

    So is Tiff coming out of retirement?

    SD Surfers-North Shore…that’s a competition and club issue. Since that was made at the local level, USAR should stay out of it. Clubs are made up of adults and they made those decisions.

    Nice work Troy. Too bad I missed the game this week, I had no idea it was being covered nationally.
