PORTLAND, Ore. - The 2013 Lewis & Clark Sports Hall of Fame class has been announced, featuring former baseball player Bob D’Aboy ’84, former football center Brandon Ito ’94, former track and field star Maile Barrett ’00, and former men’s basketball player Scott Davis ’02, as well as the 1993-94 women’s basketball team. Also honored with the 2013 class is Amy Clay, ’01 who will be receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award for her significant achievements in rowing.
D’Aboy was a three-time All-NCIC First-Team Selection (1982, 1983, 1984), was the 1981 District II homerun leader, was selected to the 1982 NAIA All-District II team, and was the 1983 L&C Team MVP. A four-year starter, the baseball team participated in post-season play all four of his years. He is in six different categories in the L&C record books, including tied for second in all-time homeruns with 26, tied for fifth in career triples with four, and is fifth in career runs scored with 124.
Ito started at center on the offensive line all four years at Lewis & Clark, blocking for a number of running backs who averaged 100 yards per game. As a member of the last L&C football team to make the national playoffs, he was named First-Team Columbia Football League Offensive Line in both 1992 and 1993 and Honorable Mention in 1991.
Barrett was a four-time All-NWC finisher in the 100 meter hurdles, winning the conference in both 1999 and 2000. She was a national competitor for three years in the 100m hurdles (1998, 1999, 2000), and also anchored the 4x100m relay team to a school record at the 2000 NWC Championships (49.17). She currently holds the L&C 100m hurdles record with a time of 14.38 (1999), is second all-time in the 100m dash (12.34), third all-time in the 200m dash (25.61), and is only the third L&C track athlete, male or female, to have competed in three straight national championships during the David Fix era. In 2000, she was named the Lois Smithwick Female Athlete of the Year.
Davis was a four-time All-NWC First-Team selection as a four-year starter on the men’s basketball team and was named to the 2002 Division III All-American Second-Team. He currently is second in the L&C record books for all-time career points with 1,949, is third in assists with 376, and third in steals with 179. While Davis was on the team, men’s basketball advanced to the national tournament three years, making it to the Sweet Sixteen in 2002.
The 1993-94 women’s basketball team became the highest nationally ranked team in L&C history at the time, moving to 11th in the NAIA National Basketball polls, and was the first women’s basketball team to qualify for the NAIA National Tournament, advancing to the quarterfinals. Winning the Northwest Conference of Independent Colleges (NCIC) with an 11-1 record, they were 26-5 overall and hold the school record in most rebounds and field goal attempts, shot 43.3% from the field, averaged 76.6 points per game, and had an average win margin of 13 points.
Clay participated on the L&C rowing team before it became a varsity sport in 1999, and following her graduation in 2001 she moved to Australia and became a member of the national rowing team. She has competed in the Rowing World Championships, Australian Rowing Championships, been named the 2011 NSW Oarswoman of the Year, and represented Australia in both the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2012 London Olympics.
