Last year, Clark took the year off from school to represent Team Canada at the 2018 Olympic Games, where she earned a silver medal. As the youngest member of the team, Clark was able to live out a childhood dream. She scored her first Olympic goal in a 5-0 win over the Olympic Athletes from Russia in the semifinals. While a tough loss against the United States in the finals ended Clark’s Olympic experience on a bitter note, she has been ready to return to the University of Wisconsin for her senior season in the hopes of earning a national championship.
