Running career[edit]

High school[edit]

While running for San Ramon Valley High School, Bauhs improved every year. As he improved, he had the smaller Division I schools recruiting him in his junior year.[5] He signed with Chico State, but at the end of his senior season, after he finished second at the CIF California State Meet in the 3200 meters,[6] there were much bigger schools such as Oregon that were interested.


Bauhs decided to stay at Chico, and there he became one of the most successful Division 2 collegiate athletes in history. He amassed eight All-Americans honors.[7] He also won three national titles.

During the 2007 track season, Bauhs beat Nicodemus Naimadu[8] of Abilene Christian to win the 10k title. Naimadu was previously undefeated. Later on, Bauhs broke the four-minute-mile barrier, and American Age Group Records in the half-marathon. He also broke the NCAA Division II American records in the 5k and 10k.[9] During his time at Chico, Bauhs ran under coach Gary Towne.
