You have probably heard the name buzzing around in the sports world, but do you know who she is?  Caitlin Clark is a star basketball player for the Iowa Hawkeyes women’s basketball team.  Caitlin Clark is the women’s basketball NCAA leading scorer in division 1 college sports.  Caitlin is said to be one of the greatest players in women’s college basketball history. Caitlin was born in January 22,2002 in Des Moines Iowa.  The 6 ft 155 pound point guard started playing basketball when she was just 5 years old.  Caitlin also played volleyball, soccer, softball, tennis, and golf before putting all of her focus on basketball.

As just a freshman in high school, Caitlin averaged 15.3 points per game.  Caitlin started all 4 of her high school years on the varsity girls basketball team at Dowling Catholic High School in West Des Moines.  Her sophomore season she made a huge jump and averaged 27.1 points per game.  On February 4, 2019, during her junior season, Clark scored 60 points in a 90–78 win against Mason City High School.  Her 60-point game was the second-highest single-game point total in Iowa girls basketball history.  Caitlin has more awards and records than I can list, so if you are curious, just look up her name and see what pops up.

So to answer is Caitlin Clark really that good?  Yea she is.  Caitlin got her first college offer in 7th grade from Missouri.  When not playin basketball, Caitlin is working on her degree in marketing.
