Community College of Baltimore County Dundalk Athletics today announced that it has named Donald Clark as its head women’s basketball coach. This is Clark’s fourth stint on a Lions’ coaching staff.
“I want to thank Brian Farrell and the entire athletic department for the opportunity to work with the terrific student-athletes at CCBC Dundalk once again,” said Clark. “I have enjoyed working with this program in the past and look forward to leading these young women to be successful in the classroom, on the court and in life.”
Most recently, Clark was an assistant coach from 2007-2009 under then Head Coach Vanessa Lock. During that time, he helped lead the team to a 13-9 record and coached two of the top career point leaders in CCBC Dundalk history, as well as the Lions career points per game all-time leader.
Clark has been a mainstay at CCBC Dundalk for the past 40 years. He started as a men's assistant basketball coach in 1979, and then joined the women’s team in 1980. He has been on and off the women's basketball coaching roster since that time and is now looking forward to taking control of the program.
Clark's coaching experience runs deep. In addition to coaching local youth recreation basketball leagues, he is also an official for local area high schools and recreation. He is a dedicated worker and has been recognized with the CCBC Dundalk Athletics Outstanding Support Staff Award.
Clark has worked full-time since 1982 for Textron Systems, Inc. (Hunt Valley, Md.) where he is the master assembly mechanic. He is also a part-time athletic specialist for CCBC Dundalk. A resident of Laurelville, Md., Clark has an adult daughter and a young granddaughter. (1/2019)
