Starpoint volleyball growing with the Clark sisters


Niagara Gazette — Now, it’s the younger sister who leads the Spartans on the court, with her big sis never far behind to provide her two cents whenever she can.

Already Madison has been contacted by schools like the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, while Brianna is hoping to attract Division I attention herself this spring once softball season gets under way.

Though spring is when Brianna will shine brightest, her role on the court never goes unnoticed. Right now, though, it’s Madison’s time to take center stage, with her sister eager to help out in any way she can.

“I can definitely see Brianna looking toward Madison for her leadership,” Slack said. “On the court, I do think Brianna looks up to her little sister.”

Whether they’re turning a 5-4-3 double play or executing the perfect kill, wherever you find one Clark sister, the other isn’t far away cheering her sister on. Or, trying to one-up the other.

“I know I always have someone to look up to … even though I’m taller than her,” Madison said, quick to make sure the slight detail did not go unnoticed.

Because of the Clark sisters, Starpoint’s growth spurt is just about complete.

“On and off the court, they never leave each other’s side,” Slack said. “Our team benefits a ton from that.”
