Brad Aagaard (center) and parents, Paul and Marjorie.

Hall of Fame Brad Aagaard ’94, engineer- ing major and cross country/ track and field distance run- ner, was inducted into the Claremont/Mudd/Scripps (CMS) Alumni Athletic Hall of Fame. A participant in cross country and track and field under coach John Goldham-

mer, Brad is remembered as a serious competitor as well as a hard worker. He made a significant impact on the team as a leader, individually as one of the two top middle distance run- ners on the West Coast, and as a participant in memorable relay performances that established school records in the 4x800m re- lay, the distance medley, and the 4xmile relay. Brad was named SCIAC Athlete of the Year in 1993, and he still holds the 1500m CMS sophomore and junior class records. Brad accepted his award at the 20th Annual Hall of Fame

Recognition Banquet on Oct. 23. Each year, the Hall of Fame Committee honors alumni or coaching staff members who made outstanding contributions to one or more sports of the CMS Athletics Department. Past HMC inductees include Donald Brosseau ’70, A.J. Shaka ’80 and Hank Krieger (honorary alumnus and coach) for tennis; Jim Dewar ’66 and Mike Scott ’89 for track and field and cross country; Steve En- demano ’71 for football and track and field; Craig Van Degrift ’66 for track and field; Stephen Goodson ’90 for soccer; John Halas ’73, Tom Jedrzejewicz ’87 and Tim McNaughton ’87 for water polo, and Sam Delich ’92 for football.
