Caitlin Clark Takes Home the Honda Cup for the Second Consecutive Season

Iowa City, IA- Caitlin Clark might be a couple states over to the east playing professional basketball for the Indiana Fever, but the former Iowa Hawkeye repeated as the Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year after receiving the 2024 Honda Cup from the Collegiate Women Sports Awards yesterday.

In their 48th anniversary broadcast, Clark became just the fourth player to receive the Honda Cup multiple times with Rachel Garcia being the most recent in 2021 and 2019 for her dominant play in softball at UCLA. Maya Moore and Tracy Caulkins were the two other multiple time recipients.

Clark is the first student-athlete from the University of Iowa to win the Honda Sport Award for basketball and the Honda Cup Award in back-to-back years. The former Hawkeye ended her career as NCAA’s all-time leading scorer and broke the NCAA women’s tournament scoring leader.

Additionally, Clark is the only NCAA Division I men’s or women’s basketball player to lead their conference in scoring and assists in four consecutive seasons.

In our 48-year history, only a handful of athletes have won the Honda Cup twice,” said Chris Voelz, Executive Director of the Collegiate Women Sports Awards. “Just as she achieved numerous historical firsts in her senior year, Caitlin Clark makes history with us as the fourth two-time Cup winner and only the second to win it back-to-back. With an exceptional class, we are thrilled to welcome her to the sisterhood of all-time greats in college athletics and eagerly anticipate the continued impact of her influence on our culture and the nation’s sports community.”

The Indiana Fever currently sit at 7-11 on the season as Clark was voted Rookie of the Month for the month of May. Recently, Clark broke the Fever’s franchise record for assists in a game with 12 in their loss to the Chicago Sky on June 23rd. The Fever will take on the Seattle Storm on Thursday, June 27th, at 10 pm.
