The women of the WNBA’s Seattle Storm made history by winning their third national title beating the Washington Mystics 98 to 82 Wednesday night at Eagle Bank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia. The Storm swept this year’s best of 5 series winning the first two games in Seattle this past weekend and clenching the win with Wednesday’s game.
It was a heady moment for MVP Breanna Stewart. Via Yahoo Sports:
“It doesn’t feel real yet, honestly,” WNBA Finals MVP Breanna Stewart said after the game. “I think that what we did as a team for these past four months, we had a goal and that was to win a championship.
“Every one of us, one through 12, the coaching staff … helped us reach this point. We’re the champs!”
The Storm also won the national title in 2004 and 2010 making them the winning-est professional sports team.
Big hearty congrats to the entire Storm team!
