Friday night Ap Clarke returned to the Nest for her first competition since reaching a major milestone in the Bellaire Volleyball program.  The team and fans took a moment after the game to celebrate Clarke reaching the 500 win mark at Bellaire High School.  The 500th win came against Fort Bend Austin in the semi-final of the Spring Branch Tournament.  Clarke as added three more wins.

Coach Clarke's career win total is currently at 804.  From 1980 to 1990, Clarke coached at Auburn High School, winning Illinois State titles in 89 and 90.  Clarke then went on to coach in the college ranks at Regis University in Colorado, University of Northern Colorado and Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.  In 2000, Clarke took over at Bellaire High School.  Clarke's Bellaire Teams have won District 20 in 13 of the last 14 years.  She has also been named Coach of The Year in District 20, 13 times.  Last season, Clarke's Bellaire team swept every District 20 AAAAAA team twice in straight sets and then swept Katy Taylor in the first round of state of playoffs before yielding to Cy-Ranch.

We love you Coach Clarke!  Looking forward to your next 500 wins!
