Caitlin Bach is being asked to contribute to the Lebanon Valley College women’s basketball team this season in a way that transcends statistics. But that doesn’t mean the 6-0 senior forward can’t put up some spectacular numbers along the way.
On Saturday, Bach led the Flying Dutchmen to the championship of the Lebanon Valley’s George ‘Rinso’ Marquette tip-off tournament, both on and off the floor.
Bach tallied 14 points and hauled down a dozen rebounds, as LVC ran by Baruch 77-55 in the title tilt. For her efforts, Bach was tabbed as the Most Valuable Player in the event – for the third straight year.
On Friday night, during an 87-47 dismantling of Neumann, Bach turned in a 14-point, 16-rebound performance.
One of just two seniors on Lebanon Valley’s 20th-ranked squad, the Manchester, Maryland product was selected as an All-Commonwealth Conference all-star last season as a junior. Bach also holds three Flying Dutchmen program records, for free throws attempted in a season, offensive rebounds in a season and overall rebounds in a season.
