This year, Caitlin Clark made quite the impact in the sports world.

The Iowa Hawkeyes star led her team to the national title game and then went on to become the No. 1 overall pick in the WNBA Draft, joining the Indiana Fever. It’s safe to say that she’s been making waves both on and off the court.

But it’s not just Caitlin who’s been in the spotlight. Her parents, Brent and Anne Clark, have been her biggest supporters since day one.

They were there for every pivotal moment in her collegiate career, from the historic upset against South Carolina in the 2023 NCAA Tournament to her record-breaking achievements and three consecutive Big Ten Tournament titles.

Brent, Caitlin’s father, is undoubtedly going to continue cheering her on as she embarks on her professional basketball career.

As the Executive Vice President at Concentric International, an industrial equipment supplier in Des Moines, Iowa, he’s in a position that allows him to closely follow Caitlin’s journey in the WNBA. His extensive experience in the industry speaks volumes about his dedication and work ethic.

Despite Caitlin’s impressive basketball career, her parents made sure to provide her with a well-rounded upbringing.

Brent mentioned, “Beyond basketball and soccer, Caitlin at some point during childhood was involved with piano, softball, tennis, track and field and volleyball.” It’s clear that they encouraged her to explore various interests and develop diverse skills.

With the 2024 WNBA regular season just around the corner, Caitlin is poised to make an impact once again, this time on a new stage.
