The Chicago Sky earned the franchise its first WNBA title, last Sunday.
A key part of that success was Candace Parker. She came back to her hometown and led the Sky to the Top.
As part of our Last Word series, we visited the place where Parker’s ascent began: her former high school, Naperville Central.
While at Naperville Central, Candace Parker led the girls’ basketball team to win back-to-back state championships in 2003 and 2004. She was also chosen twice as Gatorade’s Player of the Year.
