Mac Pluck, a North Wales native, is looking to build on her breakout soccer campaign at Duke University during her junior year, writes Andrew Robinson for the Montgomery News.

Pluck, who is a Germantown Academy graduate, is preparing to start an unusual season with the Blue Devils next week.

“My favorite part about soccer is the creative nature,” Pluck said. “I think the reason why I wanted to play Division I is because they allow that to happen and as an attacking player, you can be creative in the final third and you can change games by being unpredictable.”

She finished her sophomore year on top of her game, tied for the team lead in both points and assists with eight goals and six assists. And although the spring season came to a screeching halt due to the pandemic, the star athlete stayed focused by creating her own exercise regimen to ensure she kept in shape.

“You need to have pressure and you need to have people challenging you to get better,” Pluck said. “Being motivated individually was the most challenging part of it.”
