HOUSTON - Olivia Lueking has done nothing but win.
The Clear Creek senior pole vaulter has won every meet she has pole-vaulted in this season raising her bar height from 13-feet-1 inch to open the season to career-best 14-feet-3 inches a few weeks ago, which is currently No. 1 in Texas and No. 4 in the United States.
At the District 23-24 Area Meet last week, Lueking cleared 13-feet-9 inches to punch her ticket to the Regional Track Meet. With a solid performance this week, the senior is looking to advance to the UIL State Track Meet for the second time in her career. As a sophomore, Lueking went and placed seventh.
The Oklahoma signee also has the opportunity to advance to state in the 300-meter hurdles this week as well after posting a personal-best 42.78 last week at the area meet. That is the ninth-fastest time in the United States and fourth-fastest in Texas. If she advances to state in the hurdles, it would be the first time.
VYPE caught up with Lueking at the VYPE Houston Track & Field Photoshoot back in March. Talked to her about her season, her signing to Oklahoma, and more.
Winter is coming! There are so many great basketball stars in Clear Creek ISD. VYPE highlights five athletes from CCISD in this edition of The Wonderkids of Clear Creek ISD powered by Texas Citizens Bank.
Niyah Johnson, Clear Springs @niyahjohnson10
Clear Springs are one of the top teams down south of Houston. The Chargers have a tremendous post in Niyah Johnson, who is an Abilene Christian-commit. She's a great defender and can score in the paint.
Alex Lee, Clear Lake, @AlexLee2022
Alex Lee of Clear Lake has game. He helped lead the Falcons to the postseason last season and earned a first-team, all-district nod as a sophomore. He can shoot with a deft touch and can find the open man as a guard. He will be a star in district play this year.
Sydney Maxwell, Clear Falls @sydneym50511891
Clear Falls reached the postseason in 2019-20 with the help of post Sydney Maxwell. She has a knack for coming up with rebounds and has a great put-back game. Maxwell is a double-double waiting to happen.
Corey Kelly, Clear Falls
Corey Kelly is a beast in the middle. The Clear Falls big guard looks like a tight end and can get to the rim and protect the paint. He was a first-teamer in District 24-6A as a freshman. He and Orlando Horton Jr. are the future of Falls.
Maurice Pinnock, Clear Creek @MauricePinnock4
Maurice Pinnock plays big. The 5-foot-11 guard is great off the dribble who can also shoot. He plays physical at his size and has great handles. He was a first-teamer as a junior and will put up big numbers as a senior.
