Clark volleyball player Claire Webster made her commitment to Midwestern State University official during a signing ceremony at Clark today. Webster, an all district right side hitter for the Cougars, will also play right side for the Mustangs.
Webster made her commitment to the Division II school after a visit back in September. She says other schools had discouraged her from pursuing a nursing degree while playing volleyball, but Midwestern State did not and that was a big factor in her decision. The Mustangs compete in the Lone Star Conference.
Webster’s coach at Clark is Kristen Daniell. Her parents are Timothy and Shanan Webster.
With what seemed like the entire East Central community watching, the Hornets defeated the Clark Cougars volleyball team in the first round of the 2009 5A playoffs. The Cougars scored the first point of the match but that would be their only lead, falling 14-25, 17-25 and 16-25. This was the 25th straight year the Cougars have made it to the playoffs. Special recognition goes to this year’s Seniors – Vanessa Casanova, Claire Webster, Katlin Mazzocco, Kayla Jarzombek, Liz Bergman and Stephanie Peña. Congratulations, you’ll be missed and good luck next year.
The Cougars are coached by Kristen Daniell.
