Area Female Athlete: Pequot's Lueck learning a new role this year


It’s been a strange new world for Mattie Lueck.

Last season, the Pequot Lakes senior averaged 15.2 points and 9.6 rebounds to help the Patriots to Mid-State Conference and Section 8-2A titles on the way to a Class 2A state tournament appearance.

But Lueck was in the shadow of her older sister Emily and senior point guard Kylie Beltz. It was a spot she didn’t mind.

This season, Lueck is the main offensive threat and the key to every opponent’s defensive game plan.
