Kaytlyn Bowers (Senior) - Girls’ Track and Field:
The MAR Club Female Athlete of the Month for March is senior Kaytlyn Bowers, Girls’ Track and Field. Kaytlyn was nominated by her coach Mike Kuhn. Here is what Coach Kuhn wrote about Kaytlyn’s accomplishments:
Kaytlyn is off to a great start in her senior year as a big part of the MHS Girls Track and Field Team. During the month of March, Kaytlyn was the Braves leading scorer with 64 points, scoring in nine individual events. She has won three individual event championships in the 55 meter hurdles, 100 hurdles, and 300 hurdles; while also scoring in the high jump and 200 meter dash.
She has also qualified for the state meet in the 100 hurdles.
Kaytlyn has also started her senior season with a great attitude in her role as a team leader. She is very helpful with our younger athletes, and we do have many of them. She is also kind of person and athlete that will step up and do what is best for the team. Kaytlyn has been a valuable part of this program since her 7th grade year, and in her last season, she is off to a great start, and what could be, her best season ever. She is also a good student, ranking in the top 15% of her senior class.
Colten Stoltz (Senior) - Boys’ Track & Field:
The MAR Club Male Athlete of the Month for March is senior Colten Stoltz, Boys’ Track & Field.
Coach Leon Kary nominated Colten and here is what Coach Kary had to say about Colten:
Colten had an awesome month of March for the Boys’ Track and Field team scoring lots of points and helping the Braves to a very successful indoor season. It was all topped off on the last day of March by qualifying for state in the 100 Meter and 200 Meter Dash during the first outdoor meet of the year. He also helped the 400 x 200 Meter Relay Team to a first place finish in that event at the Karlgaard Meet in Bismarck. They just missed qualifying that event and had they’d done that Colten would’ve had a trifecta for the day. All in all though, Colten and his teammates expect to qualify in that event and others; hopefully, early in the track and field season so that he and others can dabble in other events. Colten just missed qualifying in the triple jump last year as a junior and he’s hoping to accomplish that this year as a senior. Colten has done an excellent job over his four years at the high school, not only as a team leader and mentor, but also as an inspiration of what hard work and perseverance can do. As coaches we’re very lucky to have such a nice young gentleman as a leader and inspiration for the younger athletes.
Other nominees for March are Luke Peterson, Sophomore, Boys’ Swim & Dive.
