Clark win streaks reach 12 games



The Clark College basketball teams increased their win streaks to 12 games Saturday with a pair of victories at Centralia.

MEN: Clark 73, Centralia 55 — Collin Spickerman scored 20 points, and Columbia River grad Sean Price had 17 points, nine rebounds, five assists and four steals in the victory.

“Sean played a great all-around game, and probably had more assists than he was credited for,” Clark coach Alex Kirk said. “He and Collin worked a great two-man game.”

Clark (14-1, 6-0) came away unscathed from playing four games in seven days, and Kirk said the team is looking forward to getting a break next week and actually practicing some.

“It was a brutal stretch,” he said. “I’m looking forward to getting four practices in, and I think our guys are looking forward to that too.”

WOMEN: Clark 67, Centralia 64 — The Penguins increased their winning streak to 12 games with the NWAACC West Division victory on the road.

And they did it with just seven players available for contest.

Brooke Bowen, a Skyview High grad, led Clark (14-2, 6-0) in scoring with 22 points to go with seven rebounds, and four assists.

Nicolette Bond had 20 points and five rebounds, and Haley Grossman had a double-double with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Both played at Battle Ground High School.

Clark made 51 percent of its shots (24 of 47).
