Deandre Clark and Ariel Jackson

Deandre Clark, Harris-Stowe State University - Men’s Basketball

The junior guard from Orange, Virginia earned the Newcomer of the Year award in the American Midwest Conference.

The 6’3” Clark had 20 points and 10 rebounds in the Hornets’ victory over Williams’ Baptist in the championship game of the AMC Tournament last week. He was also named to the All-AMC First Team.

For the season, Clark is averaging 12.6 points a game along with 1.6 steals while making a team-high 82 3-pointers. Harris-Stowe faced LSU Shreveport in the first round of the NAIA National Tournament on Wednesday night in Kansas City.

Ariel Jackson, Lindenwood University - Women’s Track

The junior standout sprinter was a national champion at last weekend’s NCAA Division II Indoor Championships in Pittsburg, Kansas.

Clark was the individual champion in the 200-meter dash in a winning time of 23.7 seconds, which lowered a school record that she already held. She won the MIAA title in the 200 a couple of weeks ago to qualify for the NCAA meet.

Clark also earned All-American honors in the 60-meter dash as well after setting a new school record of 7.5 seconds in the preliminaries.
