Disappointing, that is the best word to describe Region this year. Clark had a hard draw, probably the second hardest first round draw in the tournament, NEISD champions Reagan. The Rattlers are unusually deep this year, with players able to specialize in doubles or singles instead of playing both. The Coogs fought valiantly, but went down 10-3.
After placing 1st in District for the 23rd year in a row, Clark tennis team places 1st in the Area!
After beating Health Careers, 10-3, they grab another 1st!
New head tennis coach Marco Valdez extended Clark’s District Championship winning streak to 23 straight Saturday, Octber 12, 2013 at the Northside Tennis Center.

High School, the Tennis Pro at Jewish Community Center and
Whispering Oak. In addition to coaching tennis, he will also teach Geometry.
We welcome him to Clark, Texas!
Things get serious after Spring Break for our athletes in Track and Field, Tennis and Golf and today’s San Antonio Express News made a list of area athletes to keep an eye on in those sports. Two Clark seniors made the list:
* Austin Wells – long distance runner headed to Texas A&M in the fall. Wells is expected to outpace all area 5A runners in the 3200. The E-N list.
*David Starck – singles tennis, is the defending 27-5A champion and also placed 3rd at the Regional tourney in 2012. The E-N list.
Best of luck to these and all their teammates from Clark!
In what well may be at least a state record and possibly a national one, the Clark varsity tennis team defeated O’Connor 10-6 to win their 22nd consecutive district crown. Coach Scott Byrd leads this year’s champions and their next challenge is regional competition next weekend in Corpus Christi. A great season and tradition continues.
