On a night when the baseball team clinched a playoff spot and the softball team won their game giving them a playoff spot and the best ever season in Clark history, the Clark athletic community celebrated a year of great accomplishments. The annual Clark Athletic Booster Club Sports Banquet was a phenomenal success with accolades for players and coaches alike.
Highlights included a moment to recognize Coach Lloyd Alexander and his role in shaping a culture of winning in competition and in life, a parade of athletes and coaches that also included each player and teams successes and the awarding of $15,000 in scholarships to Clark seniors. The $15,000 was a new record for scholarships awarded by the Booster Club and was made possible by parents and their membership fees, cap/tshirt and etc. sales, ad sponsorships by advertisers and volunteers at concession duties and the ATT golf tournament.
The Booster Club has also given over $30,000 this year directly to the athletic department for their needs.

Several hundred Clark varsity athletes, coaches, parents and friends attended the Clark Athletic Booster Club annual All Sports Banquet. Each athlete was recognized with the exception of the Water Polo team, who could not attend due to their presence being requested in Dallas where they are competing for a STATE title (Good Luck!). The highlight of the evening was the awarding of scholarships by the booster club to college-bound seniors. Each received a $1000 scholarship. Also recognized was Booster club President Janet Whisenhunt for her efforts and Coach Kevin Hamilton, who retired from coaching after 24 years at Clark to accept a position in the district office.
