Thursday night, Clark defeated Stevens 6-2 to remain in 1st place in District and is now assured of at least a share of the District Championship.

Matt Cohen started off the inning with a single. Chris Werland moved Cohen to 2nd on a sacrifice bunt. Robert Martin stepped into the batters box and with a 1 ball, 2 strike count, hit a home run over the left field fence – scoring himself and Cohen. Next up was Ed Moore who hit a blooper between the pitcher and 2nd baseman and he beat out the throw to 1st base. (continue reading…)

The Clark baseball and softball teams both experienced on Tuesday what has been rare this season – a loss. It’s the first one in district for baseball and only the second for softball and both only by the narrowest of margins.
The Cougars softball team just couldn’t get their bats fired up as Holmes got the one run they needed in the 4th inning to beat Clark 1-0. That happens to be the same score as their only other district loss, which was Taft in the first game of the season. Clark did have 6 hits to Holmes’ 4, but couldn’t muster the runs. The loss leaves them in 3rd place in district, but with the chance to make a statement and a push in the next two games as they play second place O’Connor on Thursday and first place Taft next Tuesday.
