Commonwealth Celebrates Jackie Young’s #1 Pick

Princeton native Jackie Young was picked #1 in the WNBA draft and will be going to the Las Vegas Aces.  In a post on Instagram and Twitter, Young said, “I would like to announce that I will be following my heart and living out my childhood dream of playing in the WNBA.  I have waited for this day all of my life and I cannot wait to continue this journey.”  We are proud of this young Hoosier and were happy to be a part of her Draft Party.  On April 10th Commonwealth Engineers sponsored her Draft Party hosted by Princeton Mayor Brad Schmitt.
