Against NEC regular season champion, Robert Morris (1/20), Clark registered a career-high nine blocked shots. After graduating from Adelphi with a 3.65 grade point average, Clark posted a perfect 4.0 GPA during the fall semester at Wagner, while pursuing a master's degree in Higher Education Leadership Organization, which she is set to receive next month.
