Barbara Wuchte Wins 2012 Skyrider Jersey Design Contest

The votes have been tallied and Barbara Wuchte of Aurora, Illinois is the winner in the 2012 Skyrider Jersey Design Contest. Utilizing the dramatic Chicago Skyline as her theme, Barbara designed a spectacular jersey available exclusively to Chicago Sky season ticket holders, also known as Skyriders.

In the first ever contest to give Skyriders a chance to design the official Skyrider jersey, Barbara Wuchte’s striking showpiece secured the most votes from her fellow Skyriders. 2012 Jerseys with her design will be distributed to every Skyrider prior to the 2012 season. The jerseys are also available for purchase, but only to season ticket holders and they can only purchase as many jerseys as they have season tickets.

Barbara Wuchte has been following the Sky since the team’s very first season in 2006 and has been a season ticket holder since year two. She loves women’s basketball and she told us how much she loves the passion of the players and coaches on the Sky, particularly this past season. She was particularly thrilled with Tamera Young, her favorite player, who came into her own in the 2011 campaign.

Tamera is Barbara’s vote for most improved player even though she doesn’t get all the calls she may deserve. “Tamera’s moves are so quick, the refs can’t even see them,” Barbara said. “And she really skies when she gets those rebounds.”

We hope you enjoy Barbara’s design. 2012 Season tickets are still available and purchasing them is the only way to get the 2012 Skyrider jersey.
