This is the team’s first championship win in the team’s history, making Chicago even more proud of the team. This win comes after Chicao native (by way of Naperville) Candace Parker returned to her hometown team after being with the Los Angeles Sparks for 13 seasons.

The celebration included music, dancing, and overall recognizing the team for the amazing season that they’ve had. It was nice to see Chicago gather to celebrate something positive when negative things in the city are typically what’s highlighted.
