Niagara Gazette — Dad will join Caitlin in Louisville today, just as he took in the C-USA tournament in Oklahoma last weekend. “It’s what you dream about,” he says. “I wouldn’t miss this for the world.”
Caitlin’s a rare find for UAB. No other player hails from north of South Carolina. The weather, she says, suits her fine, about the only thing she doesn’t miss about life along Saunders Settlement.
Coach Townsend especially likes her as a “go-getter,” coming straight from the weight room to invest 110 per cent in travel. Has Attfield taught her coach anything new about Northern ball.
“Maybe not, except that they work hard,” the coach said. “She doesn’t talk a lot.”
And Dad tries to take things in stride. “College ball is different,” he says, then adding a disclaimer that suggests that father doesn’t always know best.
“Every team has a Caitlin Attfield,” he says.
Only in their dreams.
