Last week was a busy week for the Clark golf teams. The week started with the ladies Black team participating in a tournament at Alsatian in the Brandeis Invitational. The team captured 3rd place–led by senior Grace Diana’s score of 90. Marissa Fallis and Kristen Dunn followed up with 92′s for a team total of 371. Great work ladies!
The ladies Silver team’s week was highlighted by a productive practice session at Oak Hills. The ladies focused on their short games–putting and chipping. Improving that aspect of their games will help their scoring as they prepare for the district tournament that will be held at Alsatian on April 2-3.
Both men’s teams participated on Friday and Saturday at Golf Club of Texas at the Holmes Invitational. The black team missed getting a trophy by a slim margin as they finished fourth. J T Caldarola and Tyler Bercher lead the team and tied for 2nd medalist with a two day total of 155. Caldarola won 2nd place medalist by winning a score card playoff. The Silver team placed in the middle of the pack. Senior Jordon Gregory and junior Sean Butler played well for the Silver team. The next tournament for both teams will be the district competition held at Alsatian on April 9-10.

The last chance for juniors and seniors to sign up for the 2012 Clark Powder Puff game will be Thursday and Friday during lunch at Clark. The entry fee for players, coaches and the always lovely (?) male cheer squads is $25.

The traditionally strong Clark water polo teams started the 2012 season last weekend. The NISD Tournament #1 (there will be 3 more) included all NISD schools and Alamo Heights. The Clark boys went 3-0 in the tourney with wins over Brennan, Jay and O’Connor. The girls are off to a slower start with a 1-2 record beating Brennan, but losing to Jay and O’Connor.
The water polo teams will hold a regional tournament on April 20-21 and the top four teams will advance to state on May 4-5 at U.T. Austin.
Clark Baseball is now 7-2 in district with a win over Taft Monday night. Chad Dullnig was on the mound for the 10-2 victory. Clark was winning 1-0 in the 4th inning when Robert Martin hit a triple with the bases loaded. A steal to home put the Cougars up by 5. In the bottom of the 6th, with bases loaded, two more runs were scored with a double by Hayden Brown. Devin Haley’s hit scored two more for Clark and John Henderson added one more with a single. The Cougars face the Marshall Rams Friday night 7:30pm.
Clark softball took control early in their season rematch with Brandeis and left with an 8-4 victory after losing the first early season game to the broncos by one run. The Cougars did all their scoring in the first four innings and committed only one error in the game. Henessey Soto was the winning pitcher.
The Cougars remained tied for second in district and face Jay on Friday at 5:00 at Northside.
A loss by the Clark girls soccer team on Tuesday and wins by Taft and Marshall led to the Cougars missing the playoffs by the narrowest of margins. Still tied for 3rd place heading into Tuesday’s games the Cougars either needed their own win or a loss by Taft or Marshall to make it to the postseason in one of the 4 playoff spots. In the end 4th place Marshall got in with a 9-5-2 district record, Clark is 9-6-1. Taft took third place at 10-6-0.
Looking ahead: the Cougars lose 8 seniors but will return 17 players from this year’s squad next year, including top goal scorers – Freshman Chloe Trevino and Sophomore Blair Socha and a host of other top performers. Congratulations on a season well played!
The Clark boys, who locked up the postseason early, may have been guilty of looking ahead as they lost a 1-0 game to O’Connor. They enter the playoffs as the number two team in district 27-5A likely playing 28 5A third place team Corpus Christi Carroll next week.
It was a great Saturday for Clark track at Mata Stadium as they finished first out of 14 teams in the Edgewood Relays.

The Clark girls soccer team took care of Holmes on Friday with a strong 6-0 victory. Five goals came in the first half of the contest with several players contributing.

Socha, Rempel and Trevino also had assists in the game along with Bridget Sumner and Orlea Miller. The win holds the the Cougars’ spot tied for 3rd place in district with Marshall, both with 7-5-1 records. Taft is hot on their heels with a 7-6-0 record. Clark’s last game is against O’Connor on Tuesday at 7:00 at Farris. More….
Clark softball got back on the winning track in a big way after a couple of disappointing losses. The Cougars beat Marshall 10-0 on Friday. Pitcher Henessey Soto gets the win in the game called in the 6th inning when the 10th run was scored.
This brings Clark’s record to 7-3 in district and leaves them tied for second place in the 27-5A standings. Next opponent is Brandeis on Tuesday at 5:00 at Northside. The broncos managed to beat Clark by one run back on February 28th in their first meeting.
