Clark senior point guard Adam Perez was named District 27-5A MVP for the 2011-12 basketball season. Perez led the Cougars to the Regional Finals, and was also named 1st Team All District. Senior center John Chapman was named to the All District 2nd Team.
As dominating as they were on the court the Cougars are even more so in the classroom. Perez and Chapman are joined by seniors Austin Conlin, Cal Harr, Carter Josephs and Troy Ogletree on the 1st Team All Academic Team for NISD and Jacob Huston was named to the 2nd Team All Academic. That grand total of 7 outstanding student athletes outpaced all other NISD teams.
The Clark girls also received accolades for their work on the court and in the classroom. Junior Kristen Lye was named to the 1st Team All District squad and Junior Donna Matthews was named 2nd Team All District. The best news is clearly that both Lye and Matthews will return next year!
Clark also placed four senior girls on the NISD All Academic Teams. Sara Baum, Lyndsay Lyda and Ashley Salinas were named to the 1st Team and Hannah Garcia to the 2nd Team.
Another proud moment in Clark, Texas! Congratulations to everyone!
Senior basketball player Adam Perez has been named to the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches All State Team for 2011-12. As the starting point guard, Perez led Clark to the Regional Finals with his confident and composed play. He was the Cougar’s top scorer for the season averaging 17 points per game.
For the first time in 14 years the Clark Cougars will play in a Regional final basketball game hoping to take the school where it’s never been before – the State Tournament. The 58-51 semi-final victory over Laredo Alexander came after a slow start in the opening period for Clark. Down 7-11 after one, the Cougars out scored the Bulldogs 18-10 in the second period to take a 25-19 lead into the halftime locker room. Up 37-32 going into the final period the Cougars gave the Clark crowd some nervous moments, but never lost control of the game, building a 12 point lead with two minutes remaining. Those last two minutes saw that lead reduced to four with just 25 seconds left on the clock, but the Cougars persevered and closed out the victory. Adam Perez led the scoring with 24, Travis Matthews had 11 and Carter Josephs 10 points.
Up next is a familiar foe, the Warren Warriors. Clark was unable to beat Warren in the regular season, but their last meeting, on January 24th, was an overtime thriller that ended 65-62.
The All-NISD regional final will take place at noon on Saturday back in the UTSA Convocation Center. Time to show up LOUD and PROUD Clark, Texas! See you at the game!

The Clark Cougar varsity basketball team, looking to make it 2 out of 3 against the District 27-5A champions, did just that in the regional quarterfinals. Clark sent the Brandeis Broncos to the glue factory, 45-39. They now play Laredo Alexander at the regional semifinals Friday at UTSA at 8pm and with a win will play again on Saturday at noon.
Clark started off with a 9-0 lead after the 1st quarter. Travis Matthews had 4 pts. and the Clark defense and an enthusiastic Clark student section kept “my little ponies” scoreless with an 0 for 8 and three turnover opening period. The Broncos fought back in the 2nd quarter. With Adam Perez on the bench with early foul troubles, the Cougars committed 7 turnovers in the 2nd quarter and the teams went to the locker rooms tied 14-14.
The 2nd half was a back and forth affair, with the nags taking a 26-21 lead after three quarters. The Cougars rallied in the fourth behind blocks by Carter Josephs, a key block by Troy Ogletree, solid free throw shooting by Perez and inside shooting by Travis Matthews. Justin Brickman also had a key steal and bucket that kept the Cougars ahead late in the game along with a key assist to Matthews.
Editor’s Note: Special recognition goes out to the LOUD, ROWDY and well behaved Clark student section. Nice showing but don’t slack up now. You were great! And this website has taken its last shot at the Brandeis Broncos. No more “brandees”, “my little ponies”, “bronc-no’s”, “nags”, “rented mules”, “geldings”, etc. Your success earns you the right to be called by your proper name as our NISD little sisters. (OK, last one, I promise…)
The Clark Cougars varsity basketball team advanced to the 3rd round of the 5A playoffs with a 56-51 over the #7 Wagner Thunderbirds. A loud crowd saw the Cougars once again clamp down on defense and make baskets when needed to get the win.
A tight game opened up to an eight point lead at halftime by Clark. Adam Perez’ 3-point basket at the buzzer sent the Cougars to the locker room with a 29-21 lead. Wagner flew back in the third with three point shooting to make it a 39-38 game after three periods of play. The game wasn’t a certain win until Carter Josephs made a steal with :08 seconds left in the game.
NOW PAY ATTENTION: This means the Cougars will take on BRANDEIS on Tuesday at Paul Taylor next. These Coogs need a LOUD CROWD to help them on their way. The “my little ponies” fans will be there with support. Show up, tweet, facebook your friends, and get ready to get rowdy!
Great game Coogs!

Both Clark varsity basketball teams and soccer teams were victorious in their games in district play.
Perhaps the most dramatic win came as the boys basketball team was down by 2 points with :01 left in their overtime game with Holmes. Adam Perez floated a three pointer over the Huskie defense to give the Cougars a one point win 49-48. The boys are currently 3rd in the district standings with 3 games left on the schedule.
On the girls side, Donna Matthews led all scorers with 9 points as Clark easily defeated the Huskies 44-27. The win gives the Cougars a 19-12 record. A Clark win in their final game combined with Jay losses in their next two games keeps the Cougars’ playoff hopes alive.
