Mackenzie Clark is taking her volleyball skills to the next level.

The Jamestown High School senior signed a letter of intent on Monday with North Dakota State College of Science. The National Junior College Athletic Association Division II Wildcats went 27-12 last season, en route to the team's third straight Region 13 title.

"At the end of last year, I saw my improvements and it really came to mind that I only had one more season and I didn't want it to end," Clark said. "I worked really hard to try and make it to this point."

Clark, who is still deciding on a major, was second on the Blue Jays this season with 303 kills. The two-year starter, playing both outside hitter and right side, helped lead Jamestown to a sixth-place finish at the Class A state tournament last fall.

Clark also finished the season with 72 digs and 10 blocks.

"Kenzie has worked hard to become a good volleyball player," JHS volleyball coach Sara Hegerle said. "We will certainly miss her next year here at Jamestown. She will fit in nicely at NDSCS and I look forward to watching her compete at the next level."

For her career, Clark amassed 458 kills, 135 digs and 18 blocks. The Wildcats are coached by Jane Passa, who is about to begin her 20th season at the helm.

"It seemed like a really good family to get into, just like the Blue Jay program was, Clark said.

Clark is the daughter of Sondra and Steven Clark, and Casey Dodgson, all of Jamestown.
