College signature

Thursday afternoon at Watertown High School, Cyclones senior lacrosse player Jack Clough realized a lifelong dream when he signed a letter of intent to continue his Division II lacrosse career Belmont Abbey.

Clough says his decision to head south to play lacrosse was a simple one.

“So, I’ve always known that once I get out of high school, I want to go somewhere warm, so North Carolina was a good place to start,” he said. “I received a scholarship there and the coach really caught my attention. He’s a great guy. There will be a brand new turf field, a new stadium, new dormitories; that’s what really pushed me to finish the Belmont Abbey decision.”

Clough has been a standout for the Cyclones on the lacrosse field the past two seasons, scoring 45 goals and three assists as a sophomore in 2021 and scoring 49 goals and dishing out 12 as a junior last year assistances

Cyclones lacrosse coach Brian Navarra says Belmont Abbey is getting a quality individual both on and off the lacrosse field

“You know, they’re being such a hard worker,” Navarra said. “This kid is someone who leaves everything on the field and when he’s on the field he’s always 120%, he just flies around the field. He’s a kid who hates to lose. No matter what it takes, he will take every challenge head on and do everything he can to achieve the goal he has set for himself.”

Jack Clough is looking to make his mark at the college level at Belmont Abbey next season.
