Clark Basketball

Clark girls basketball players had an opportunity to meet their new coach this week when Richard Herbst stopped by the school for a visit. Coach Herbst brings a wealth of experience to the Clark program with 27 years as a head coach in both the college and high school ranks compiling a 563-294 record. A native of Boerne, Coach Herbst played basketball at Boerne High School and then at Howard Payne University. He was an assistant at Colorado State University and was head men’s coach at Schreiner University and Mary Hardin-Baylor  for several years before returning to Schreiner as the head women’s coach.

From there he took over the Boerne High School girls basketball program from 1999-2007, and was able to coach his two daughters. His time in Boerne included several district titles and a state tournament appearance. More about that from .

For the last three years Coach Herbst has been in Copperas Cove serving as head girls coach. Right beside him during that time was his wife, Michele,  as an assistant coach.  Read about it in the Killeen Daily Herald.

The Herbst’s  two daughters are Rebecca, a medical school student at the A&M Health Science Center and Jessica, who just graduated from Southwestern University in Georgetown. With lots of family in Boerne they are looking forward to their return to the San Antonio area.

Welcome Coach Herbst!
