“Levelling the Playing Field” Drive Scores Big

The drive to build an athletic field at MANS headlined and supported by alumnus Joshua Saddleback and Dakotah Pratt, parents of Kiya (Grade 3), raised more than $84,000.

“That is amazing news!” wrote Dakotah Pratt. “The athletic field really is a dream come true!”

But the story doesn’t end there. Kiya’s parents are so excited about the project and what it represents that they’re getting personally involved.

Dakotah plays on the first all-Indigenous women’s slow pitch team, Squad,
which qualified to compete in the Softball Canada national finals this summer. Working along with MANS athletic director Tessa Willing, Dakotah will be spearheading a softball camp for students this spring, putting her extensive experience in coaching kids to work along with three of her teammates who hail from Maskwacis.

Hear about Joshua's experience as a student and why he's sending his daughter to MANS.
