October 2017 MAR Club Athletes of the Month
Dylan Fleck (Senior) – Football
The MAR Club Male Athlete of the Month for October is Dylan Fleck, Senior, Football.
Coach Todd Sheldon nominated Dylan for these accomplishments:

“Dylan Fleck played an instrumental role in all facets of the team in the month of October. He has started at Free Safety for the last two seasons and became a true coach on the field, making checks and helping coordinate the actions of his team mates. Defensively he finished the season as the fourth leading tackler on the team. Offensively Dylan transitioned to tailback and accounted 100 yards on 22 carries, nearly five yards a carry. Dylan also had a punt return against Fargo North that helped to establish great field position.

Throughout his career as a Braves football player he has been a positive role model in every facet imaginable. Dylan led in the weight room, the summer workouts, camps, 7 on 7’s, practices, games and in every community event. The Braves football program is in a better place because of his efforts.”
Kelby Rinas (Sophomore) - Girls' Cross Country
The MAR Club Female Athlete of the Month for October is Kelby Rinas, Sophomore, Girls’ Cross Country. Coach Hilary Feist nominated Kelby for these accomplishments:

“Kelby had an amazing cross country season! She was undefeated all season long but really proved how hard work pays off in the month of October!

Kelby competed in three meets during October and took first place in all three to remain undefeated in the state for the entire season. On October 7, she won the Minot Souris Valley Invitational with a time of 18:35, winning by 15 seconds! On October 14, she won the WDA Championship with a time of 18:22, which was a 13-second lead! Then on October 28, she became the first ever Female Cross Country State Champion from Mandan! She won that race with a 10-second lead in a time of 18:15!

Kelby is a very determined young lady who worked hard and pushed herself and her teammates all season long to do their best! I cannot wait to see what she does in the next two years!”
