In her last year playing as an Iowa Hawkeye the team almost sold out every single game. So many young girls and boys look up to her and all that she has done in her career so far.

Caitlin Clark was just recently drafted as the number one overall pick to the Indiana Fever in the 2024 WNBA Draft. She reacted to her first couple of practices on the pro level that the game is so much faster than college. “I think no matter what happens, there’s going to be expectations and pressure on my shoulders and pressure on this team to be really good. That’s how you want it,” Clark said. “We wouldn’t want anything else. We want people showing up to our games, people expecting us to win a lot of basketball games this year, and I’m expecting myself to play really well. I don’t think it’s anything that’s ever been different for me.” (Foxnews.com) Caitlin Clark is one of the leading scorers for her team and recently had her first 30 point game in the WNBA. She is going to do great things this year, I hope you can get a ticket before they are all sold out!
