The Cardi’s Hometown Sports Hero for this week is Classical senior Austin Clark.
An reigning All-Stater on the soccer field and tennis court, Clark this fall joined the Purple football team, taking advantage of the Rhode Island Interscholastic League’s new rule allowing athletes to compete in two varsity sports in the same season. As a kicker, Clark has helped boost Classical special teams, while also helping the defending Division II soccer champions to an undefeated start.
Clark also runs for the middle distances for the Purple’s indoor track team.
A standout in the classroom, Clark is looking at host of colleges in the Northeast.
