Phoenix Mercury To Visit White House To Honor 2009 WNBA Championship

On Monday, July 19, President Obama will welcome the WNBA Champion Phoenix Mercury to the White House to honor the team's 2009 championship season. In conjunction with this event, members of the team will participate in a service project with local area youth during their visit to Washington, D.C. This continues a tradition begun by President Obama of sports champions serving in the community as part of their visit.

The Mercury secured its second championship (2009, 2007) in three seasons after defeating the Indiana Fever in a five-game series during the 2009 WNBA Finals in October.

Diana Taurasi was named the regular season and finals MVP and led the team to a 30-15 record for the season.
