Clark Nominated for Amateur Athletics Award

Belmont freshman Alysha Clark (Mt. Juliet, Tenn.) of the Belmont women’s basketball team is one of five collegiate players nominated for the Amateur Athletics award for the Nashville Sports Council’s 8th Annual O’Charley’s Dinner of Champions. She is the only female nominated for the award and the only athlete from Belmont.
Last year, Clark helped her Mt. Juliet High School team win the state championship and came away with State Tournament MVP honors. She was also named Tennessee Gatorade Player of the Year, Class 3A Miss Basketball, Midstate Player of the Year and McDonald’s All-America Honorable Mention.
Now in her first year with the Bruins, Clark is continuing to impress. She is currently ranked 10th in NCAA Division I in scoring and is second in the Atlantic Sun Conference in this category as well. She also leads the Belmont women’s basketball team in both scoring and rebounding and has been named A-Sun Player of the Week twice.
Clark’s former team, Mt. Juliet, has also been nominated for an award – High School Team Athletics honors.
The winners of the 8th Annual O’Charley’s Dinner of Champions will be presented on Monday, February 13 at Gaylord Opryland Resort.
