A few weeks ago, Bellaire volleyball coach Ap Clarke didn't like what saw from her Cardinals. Bellaire took its lumps in the Pearland Classic and Dickinson Tournament, causing Clarke to question her team's fortitude. (more of the story)

Chronicle Correspondent

The Bellaire volleyball team finds itself in an all-too-familiar position during the 2007 season: Heavy district favorite.

The Cardinals have earned that honor by virtue of their success during coach Ap Clarke's tenure. Bellaire's 30-8 record a year ago marked the sixth time in seven seasons that the Cardinals have reached the 30-win mark. (more of the story).

Cardinals Capture Seventh Consecutive District Title

By Carlos Febles

Houston, TX - For the seventh year in a row, the Bellaire Cardinals are the district 20-5A Volleyball Champions.  It is believed that the seventh consecutive district title is an HISD record; however, HISD officials could not confirm. 

The Cardinals completed the regular season without losing a single district game for the second year in-a-row.  The Cardinals finished district play with a record of 16-0 and have an overall record of 32-8.    The Cardinals won the title by defeating cross-town rival Westside in three games.  “The girls (Westside) came out here tonight and played their tails-off,” said Westside Head Coach Smoke.  “That’s all that I can ask.  Good luck to Bellaire in the play-offs”

“You’ve played your butt off,” stated Marmion Dambrino, HISD Manager of Athletic Programs as she was handing Bellaire the district title trophy.  “The season is done but the playoff’s have just begun.  You still have your work cut-out for you.  You’ve done a great job and you have a great coach and you’re a great group of girls – CONGRATULATIONS.” 

The future looks bright for Bellaire as their JV completed the season without losing a match in or out of district with an overall record of 25-0.  Like their big sisters in the varsity team, the JV did not lose a single game during district play.  The JV team defeated the likes of Fort Bend Austin who’s varsity team is ranked sixth in the Houston area by Houston Chronicle and was the only team to take a single game from Bellaire this year.  The Lady Cardinals also defeated two private school powerhouses, Second Baptist who’s varsity squad is ranked third in the state and St. Agnes who is ranked second in the state.  “Their awesome, great kids, great players, it was wonderful!” said JV Coach Evans.  “Hannah Jones came through with some great hits.  My setter Kara Febles is tremendous.  She is going to the playoff’s with the varsity.  Johann Garcia played libero wonderfully.”   

The Freshman team improved immensely throughout the season.  After suffering first round defeats from Lamar and Westside, the team was able to avenge their defeats in the second round of play by beating both teams.  They completed the season tied for first place with Westside. 

As the JV and Freshmen players graduate to the varsity squad, Bellaire should continue to enjoy their winning ways for the next two years with the possibility of district title number eight and number nine. 

 “I am very please with the improvement of all three teams this season,” Bellaire Head Coach Ap Clark stated. “They all deserve to be District Champs.
