Stefanie Dolson had a lot to celebrate on Monday.

Monday was a day worth celebrating for Stefanie Dolson.

As expected, the Sky re-signed Dolson to a multi-year deal, the team announced Monday. Term of the deal weren’t disclose.

Last season, Dolson, a starter for all 34 games, averaged 9.3 points and 5.6 rebounds and ranked fourth in the league in field-goal percentage, finishing with a 51.8 percent average.

General manager James Wade has been adamant about returning as much of his 2019 squad as possible for this season, so it comes as no surprise that he brought back Dolson, especially after he traded Astou Ndour to the Wings last week.

“Stefanie is a big part of our identity on both ends of the floor, and off the floor as well,” Wade said in a statement. “She has proven to be a crucial piece in our turnaround, and I couldn’t imagine going into 2020 without her.”

It was also announced that Dolson was one of the four players picked to represent Team USA at the 2020 three-on-three Olympic Qualifying Tournament set for next month in Bengaluru, India.

The news that Dolson will join current WNBA players Napheesa Collier, Allisha Gray and Kelsey Plum at the international competition comes on the heels of a USA Basketball three-on-three training camp, which took place in Chicago last week.
