Steven Clark’s New Journey


On Sep. 25, Steven Clark got a once in a lifetime opportunity: He was accepted to a Division 1 school Colgate University in Madison City, New York, where he will continue his basketball career playing for the Raiders. 

Clark is a dedicated one-sport athlete who used to do more than just basketball. He played tennis for three years, baseball for all of the years until high school, and football for about five years.

Clark had always wanted to continue his basketball career after high school, and his hard work paid off. 

“I think the time I put into the game of basketball, countless hours in the gym, or even working around the house has definitely helped,” said Clark.

Clark has competed for the Wisconsin Playground UAA club in the off season.

With every success story the player has their own personal accomplishments and here are Clarks.

Some of Clark’s biggest accomplishments, in his words, are “Receiving seven Division One offers from colleges from basketball.”

Some of the colleges include Green Bay, Murray, Valparaiso, and St.Thomas (Minnesota) as well as Colgate and a couple others

Clark is most excited to be going to Colgate University “to meet the new people and for the community”. 

“Colgate University is considered one of the ‘hidden Ivies’ in the college world. It is a part of the 100 most selective colleges in the US,” according to the website Best Colleges.

Colgate University’s conference is the Patriot League which includes schools such as American, Boston University, and Bucknell. In that conference, Colgate currently holds the first place in the division. They have won conference championships eight times and made it to the NCAA tournament six times and have yet to win one.

He also chose it because of the major he wishes to pursue.

“They have a good Astronomy program. My dream would be to work at NASA one day,” said Clark. 

A surprising fact about Clark is that he actually likes coming to school.

“I like coming to school everyday because it’s enjoyable to be here,” says Clark.\

Another interesting fact about Clark is that he is a beekeeper in the summer. 

Clark has some advice for other athletes. 

“Hard work pays off”.
