The bats were hot for the Clark softball team on Friday as they defeated Jay 14-3. The game was called in the 5th inning based on the 10 run rule. Victoria Centeno was on the mound for the Clark win. The Coogs are now 3-2 in district play with a busy Spring Break week ahead. It’s a great time to take in some softball out at the Northside complex with a game against Marshall at noon on Monday, Holmes Tuesday at 2:00 and Warren on Thursday at 2:00. Good luck Cougars!
Meanwhile baseball had a non-district win over MacArthur on Friday 2-1 at Blossom. You can catch some good baseball next week as the boys spend their Spring Break at the Northside fields. Brandeis is up first – Monday at noon, then Jay at 2:45 on Tuesday and on Thursday they’ll play Marshall at noon. Go Coogs!
The Clark baseball team got a win on Tuesday night, but it couldn’t have been closer. The Cougars Beat Taft 1-0 after six scoreless innings. Clark got its one run in the top of the 7th and held on for the victory. Nick Van Ryan was on the mound for the Cougars and gave up only two hits. It was a much needed win for Clark, now 1-2 in district play. Next up is a non district game against MacArthur at Blossom 6pm Friday.
Unfortunately the Clark softball team lost by the narrowest of margins on Tuesday. Brandeis won this game 6-5, but the Cougars never gave up. Down 2-6 in the 6th inning the Cougars added 3 runs to finish the game. Clark is 2-2 in district with Jay up next on Friday at 7pm at Northside.

Congratulations once again to Clark Softball, who are advancing to the 3rd round of playoffs against district rival O’Connor for a chance at the regional title. The Panthers won both district games against the Cougars, although both games were very competitive. O’Connnor won the first game after 12 innings of play and game 2 was a 1-0 outcome in favor of the Panthers.
Clark is expected to be motivated to avoid a sweep which has already been predicted by O’Connor center fielder Hannah Fields in the Express News (link below). You can see the girls in action this Friday at 7pm at Northside. Time to show up and be loud, Cougar fans!
TEAR ‘EM UP COOGS!
