AXTON – William Clark, who plays middle infield for the Chiefs, signed a letter of intent to play NCAA Division III baseball at Emory and Henry College on Wednesday.
“Being here elevated my academics to a level I didn’t think it would go and it changed me as a person,” Clark stated.
Clark, who transferred to Carlisle from Franklin County in his freshman year, plans to pursue a degree in finance from Emory and Henry.
“William has felt at home at Carlisle from day one. Where he came from a much larger public school setting, the smaller class sizes at Carlisle have been beneficial to help him be comfortable in his own skin,” his mother, Rhonda Clark said.
He is currently taking three AP level classes and is in the National Honor Society.
He added, “Athletically, playing for Coach Inman these four years has changed my game; it helped me grow as a player.”
Last season, Clark was named a First Team Conference and Second Team State player.
“He is excited to attend Emory and Henry because it has a similar tight-knit feel like Carlisle,” his mother added.
