Elena Delle Donne was named to the 2018 All-WNBA First Team on Wednesday night during halftime of Game 3 of the WNBA Finals. It’s Delle Donne’s third time making All-WNBA First Team and her first time since joining the Mystics in 2017.

Her All-WNBA selection is the crowning achievement in what’s been an honor-filled season. She made it to the WNBA Finals, was selected as Eastern Conference Player of the Week four times and Eastern Conference Player of the Month twice during the Mystics’ most successful season in franchise history.

Delle Donne was selected first team on 35 of the 39 ballots cast by a panel of WNBA sportswriters and broadcasters. Breanna Stewart and Liz Cambage were the only two players who received more votes.

Diana Taurasi and Tiffany Hayes were the other two players selected to the All-WNBA First Team. Candace Parker, Skylar Diggins-Smith, Maya Moore, Brittany Griner, and Courtney Vandersloot earned All-WNBA Second Team honors.
