Clark leads the conference in hitting percentage and is third in total kills heading into this week's conference quarterfinals.  She hit .289 and has amassed 295 kills and 295 digs on the year.

The senior from San Jose, CA has led the team to a 15-13 mark and the third seed in this week's conference tournament.  Last season, the Trailblazers advanced to the conference finals before falling to Framingham State.

Clark had a season best 32 kills in a five set win over William Patterson on 10/1 and a 26 dig effort in a loss to Anna Maria on 9/27.  In total, she has recorded eleven double doubles on the season for the Trailblazers.
