Sport: Track, Cross Country
Lofgren has been running for Clayton Valley’s track team for her entire high school career. Her interest in running grew as she progressed through school and she decided to join the Ugly Eagles cross country team in her junior year. Her events include the 1600- and 3200-meter races. “I love the team I am a part of. When running beside my teammates, whether it’s in a race or at practice, everyone is always supporting one another,” Lofgren says, “My teammates are some of the best people I know. They support anyone who is running, even if they are not a part of our team.” As a junior Lofgren was awarded CVCHS cross country Rookie of the Year. She was named Most Inspirational last fall. Over the years, Lofgren has been recognized as a Scholar Athlete, managing to maintain above a 3.5 GPA throughout high school. “Being an athlete at Clayton Valley was a wonderful experience for me that I would not trade for the world. It shaped me into the person I am today,” Lofgren says. She is a member of the Clayton Arts Academy, which she has been heavily involved in since her freshman year. She is also part of Senior Women, Blue Crew and the drama program at CVCHS. Lofgren plans to attend DVC for two years and transfer to a university. She aspires to become an industrial organizational psychologist, evaluating large companies to determine the nature of their employees.
