Soccer stand-out Clark headlines Furman inductees

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - U.S. National soccer team member Ricardo Clark heads up the newest class to make the Furman University Athletics Hall of Fame.

Clark, former golf star Jennifer Perry and ex-cross country standout Fleetwood Loustalot will be inducted in July.

Clark played two years at defensive midfield for the Paladins, helping them to a 36-8-1 mark, two Southern Conference regular-season titles and consecutive appearances in the NCAA tournament. He was part of the team that set an NCAA record with 11 straight shutouts in 2002.

Clark scored the winning goal against Trinidad and Tobago that clinched a berth for the United States in the World Cup next month.

Perri is the only 3-time Southern Conference player of the year, winning the honor from 2000-02. Loustalot won seven SoCon event championships in 1962-63.
