Athlete of the Week
The Rural High School Athlete of the Week is Cara Klippenstein of the Morris Mavericks Volleyball Team.
The left side hitter helped lead the Mavericks to victory at their home tournament and third place at Deloraine. Coach Scott Stevenson states, "Cara is a very intelligent hitter, and she is just as willing to hit a roll shot into an open spot as she is to unleash on one. She’s just the kind of player that is extremely coachable. She’s been a setter, a libero, and now power. I think this experience has helped her to understand where all the holes are, and now she’s taking advantage of that. She’s been an integral part of her team’s success this year."
