Multiple Teams · XC/Track – Maggie Baugh Signs with Beloit College

Clayton High School is proud to announce the signing of CHS runner Maggie Baugh to Beloit College in Wisconsin.

The event took place in the CHS Greyhound Room today, 5/16/18, after school around 3:15pm.

High School coaches, family members, friends, teachers and fellow students were all in attendance.

It was a special day as Maggie earned the right to participate in collegiate athletics.

This signing truly is a testament to the commitment of our school, students and community here in Clayton.

Below is a look at how Maggie came to her decision:

“I started running when I was eight. No one in my family ran, but my elementary school had a Girls on the Run team, so I joined.

As soon as I started running, I knew I wanted to keep running.

Joining the cross country team at CHS was an easy decision, and I have had a great four years running at Clayton.

The first time I visited Beloit, my tour guide was a cross country runner. When we went to the Athletic Center, she took me to meet the coach. The second time, I was staying for an overnight visit with a different cross country runner. The team and perspective runners all ate dinner together and hung out together.

The team felt very similar to the Clayton team; open, inviting, and close. I knew that I wanted to join that team.”

On behalf of the Athletic Department we would like to congratulate Maggie and her family!
