Athlete of the Month August 2014 Athlete’s of the Month for MAR Club

Rachelle Harr (Senior) - Girls Volleyball:

Senior Volleyball Player Rachelle Harr is the August Female Athlete of the Month. Coach Anna Folk wrote this about Rachelle:
Please consider Rachelle Harr for the August Athlete of the Month. After our first weekend of regular season play, in 7 matches, Rachelle racked up 30 kills, 3 blocks & 35 digs. She has made a big position change, going from 3 rotations as a middle hitter to playing all 6 positions as an outside hitter. That is a huge role change and Rachelle has excelled not only in the stats category, but she has stepped up big time with her leadership and positive attitude. She will play a crucial role for us in our quest for a state tournament berth.



Cam Christopherson (Senior) – Boys Football:

August Male Athlete of the Month is Cam Christopherson. Cam is a Senior Football Player and was nominated by Coach Todd Sheldon, here is what Coach Sheldon had to say about Cam:
Cam has lead by example throughout the summer and start of our season. He has accepted moving to a new position defensively after earning all-state honors last season as a corner he has moved to Strong safety. ---From the strong safety position he led the team in tackles against Fargo South on August 29th and defended 3 passes. Cam has helped his teammates to adjust to changes defensively and and stepped up his role as a leader through this process.---Cam also played significant minutes at running back offensive (no stats are available). He is also on three special teams---Cam has led his teammates in off-season activities from weight training and summer camps to fundraising activities. Including a regional 7 on 7 competition in the twin cities and a camp in Valley City, 4 days of lifting per week, and the Cloverdale hot dog sale, Medieval Rush and coupon book sales.---We look to Cam to be a leader in all aspects of our program..

MHS Athletic Donations MAR Club Supports MHS athletics
One of the fantastic things about being part of MAR Club is seeing our efforts pay off….which has happened again. Each year the MAR Club makes a monetary donation to the Mandan High School athletic department to supplement their budget to help student athletes. The efforts of the MAR Club results in an average donation of $30,000 to MHS activities. The following is a list of supplies/equipment/uniforms that the Athletic Department purchased in-part with the donation from the MAR Club for the 2010-11 school year. This donation was made possible with the generous support of the super boosters, patrons that purchased clothing, and the revenue generated through volunteer workers for NDHSAA tournaments hosted by the Mandan High School Athletic Department.

MAR Club Purchases

Every year the MAR Club helps purchase several needed items for Mandan activities that benefit both students and the fans.

The Mandan Athletic Department would like to thank the MAR CLUB for their annual donation on behalf of students and coaches.
