Lynx Swept, But Carleton Did Chatham And Canada Proud
It might have been an ending for the Minnesota Lynx for this season, but Bridget Carleton did her hometown of Chatham, and all of Canada proud.
Carleton was one of only four Canadian’s in the WNBA this season.
Although her Minnesota Lynx fell three straight to the Seattle Storm, who advanced to the WNBA finals after Sunday’s 92-71 win, Carleton showed a monumental improvement this season, her second in the league.
She averaged 6.6 points per game, 3.5 rebounds, and 2.5 assists per game, but made her impact felt as much defensively as offensively, and boosted the Lynx through the intangibles she brings to the team.
Carleton started 3 of 4 playoff games for the Lynx, and also started 15 contests in the regular season.
She also stood alongside her teammates this season in advocating for social justice issues in America and North America.
Eliminated, yes. Finished, no.
