“Being selected to the All-Star team is a tremendous honor and I’m excited to head to Phoenix to compete,” said Hamby. “This points to the hard work that I’ve put in during the offseason and in games so far, but it’s also thanks to my great teammates and coaches who have trusted me in a leadership role with our team.”

“I am so incredibly proud that Dearica has earned her 3rd All-Star appearance and first as a Spark,” said Head Coach Curt Miller. She has been a tremendous leader for our young team while putting up impressive numbers throughout the season. This honor is so well deserved and I’m happy that so many have recognized her outstanding play.”
