Australian Diamonds and Sunshine Coast Lightning
Having been around the Diamonds squad since 2008, Cailtin or ‘CBass’ is now their go to goal shooter with a world class shooting percentage. She has the experience under her belt to know what it takes to be a successful player at international level as well as being the known game changer and match winner.
Caitlin finished the 2011 ANZ Championship season with more goals than any other shooter to earn her a spot on the Diamonds team for the World Championships in Singapore. Here she scored 151 goals from 155 attempts at an incredible 97 per cent for the tournament. Caitlin was used as the ‘super sub’ in the grand final and became a household name when she shot the match-winning goal with one second left on the clock in extra time.
She continued her strong form over the next few years and in 2015 she was crowned “World’s Best Netballer” along with Australia’s top netball gong the “Liz Ellis Diamond” cementing her sport as one of Australia’s greatest ever goalers.
In 2017 Caitlin moved from Perth to the Sunshine Coast to play for the newly formed Lightning as a part of the inaugural season of the Suncorp Super Netball league. Caitlin was the Vice-Captain for the Sunshine Coast Lightning as they finished the season with Premiership success, beating Giants Netball in the Grand Final.
Caitlin now has her sights on leading the Samsung Diamonds at the Commonwealth Games in 2018, in front of her new home state of QLD.
Outside of netball Caitlin is die-hard coffee fan and a self proclaimed crazy animal lover. She is studying Broadcast and Journalism and hopes to one day be involved in sports media.
