Congratulations to Sarah Mafi on being selected as this week's, "Prep of The Week." Sarah's outstanding play as a middle blocker/outside hitter has been a big factor in guiding the volleyball team to the Region 8 title. Sarah and her teammates also had an outstanding state tournament finishing with a 3-1 record and the highest team finish in Maple Mountain history. Along with Sarah's position on the volleyball team, she also participates as a cheerleader for the lady Golden Eagles. Great Job, Sarah!
