PEQUOT LAKES — Pequot Lakes senior tennis player Payton Mudgett was named this week’s Most Valuable Teammate by the Minnesota State High School League.

According to head coach Monica Sergent, “Payton is a team captain who has a quiet, humble personality but is constantly working hard to be a great teammate. She is a role model who leads by example on and off the court. Besides displaying a strong work ethic, Payton extends friendliness, kindness and commitment to those around her; teammates, fellow students, coaches, school staff and community members.”

Mudgett played No. 3 singles for the Patriots who won the Mid-State Conference and finished the season 18-7 overall.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
