Indiana Fever forward Tamika Catchings was named Most Valuable Player for the WNBA’s 2011-12 season.
Catchings is a nine year veteran and this is her first MVP Award. She has also made six All-Star appearances and earned an equal number of spots on the All-WNBA team.
What I love about Tamika is that she never allowed her hearing disability to deter her from her dreams. She’s one of the toughest basketball players around (female or male) and this recognition was long overdue.

Congratulations, Jersey Girl!
