MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Lynx are headed to Washington D.C. next week, but it won’t be to face the Mystics in the WNBA.

The Lynx will be honored at the White House by President Barack Obama on Tuesday, Sept. 18, for the 2011 season, which ended with the franchise’s first WNBA championship. The Lynx are also being recognized for their efforts in supporting health and wellness programs and breast cancer awareness initiatives.

The Lynx set a franchise record with 27 wins last season and swept the Atlanta Dream to win the WNBA Finals.
