Clayton was widely considered to be the second-best team in the state in 2011, behind Ladue . Excluding WUHSAC XIII, the team placed fourth or better in every in-state tournament it attended, either winning or placing behind Ladue at all in-state tournaments Ikshu attended. Clayton was the only Missouri team to place ahead of Ladue at any tournament (2011 Mort Walker Invitational) that season. Despite the team's strength in the 2011 season, due to MSHSAA districts being based on geographic proximity, Clayton was not even able to advance to sectionals in the 2011 MSHSAA State Championship series because it was in the same district as Ladue (which is only four miles away) . They finished 32nd at the 2011 NSC.
