Her 2nd place finish in the women’s 5000 meters, timed in 18:32.1, was a PR over the distance. She also finished 6th place in the 3000 meters. Glynnis competes for Dallas Baptist University. Congratulations!
Clark graduate (’11) Glynnis Meade helped the Dallas Baptist Women’s Cross Country team win their 5th straight Heartland Conference Championship in Laredo. Completing the 6k course in 23:30, Glynnis placed 4th overall and earned a spot on the All Conference team. Next up is the NCAA Division II South Central Region meet, taking place on November 5th at Midwestern University in Wichita Falls. Congratulations Glynnis!
The Clark Cougar annual All Sports Banquet, hosted each year by the Clark Athletic Booster Club, was the scene for a good time and a “hot” evening (see: A/C). Athletes and their coaches had a chance to review their seasons with parents and other athletes.
The highlight of the evening was the scholarships awarded. This year, thanks to Booster Club members and sales of sports program ads, t-shirts and other spirit items, $16,000 was awarded to student athletes going to college. The money awarded set a new record for number of students and amount of money given back by the Booster Club (see: IMPORTANT TO SUPPORT AND JOIN!).
Congratulations to all the athletes and coaches for their efforts this year and special good luck to the Seniors who have contributed to the Pride of the Northside. It’s a Good Day to be a Clark Cougar!

Wet weather this week moved the NEISD Cross Country meet on Saturday, Sept 11th to Blossom Athletic Complex, which meant running through the parking lots and surrounding streets with the finish in Comalander Stadium. It was another big meet, with 28 girls teams and 33 boys teams competing, including many from NISD and NEISD. Top 10 finishers for the girls were Glynnis Meade, 2nd place (12:03.6) and Shantel Swift, 7th place (12:17.2), followed by Katherine Ritchie (13:45), Amanda De La Fuente (13:45), Valerie Vacek (14:28), Catherine Seifert (14:57) and Lauren Porter (15:07). Brandeis took the 1st place girls team spot, with Clark the next NISD team, placing 6th.
Austin Wells placed 3rd overall for the boys (16:48.9), with Aidan Pierce next (19:56), then Harry MacTough (20:16), Nicholas Moseley (20:18), Tyrell Lewis (20:19), and Daniel Carcomo (20:40). Both courses were slightly longer than the expected 2 and 3 miles.
The Cross Country season is off and running! Rain canceled the Southwest meet last year, and the team wondered if Friday’s showers would cause a repeat as the course is below street level. But Saturday dawned with clear, 70 degree skies – a beautiful day for early September in San Antonio. Taking advantage of the situation were a trio of Cougars – Glynnis Meade was 3rd (11:05.3) and Shantel Swift, 4th (11:06.8) for the girls race (approx 1.9 miles), and Austin Wells, 4th(14:52.4) for the boys race (approx 2.95 miles). The girls placed 7th out of 26 teams, with scoring added by Katherine Ritchie, Amanda De La Fuentes, and Valerie Vacek. Lauren Porter and Catherine Seifert rounded out the Varsity team. The boys team were 15th out of 33 teams, with Tyrell Lewis, Aidan Pierce, Harry MacTough, and Nicholas Moseley scoring, followed by Daniel Carcamo and JR Guajardo. Both teams include several new runners, including a few Freshman running as Cougars for the first time. It was an exciting day for all!
