WNBA player Alysha Clark said Monday that she tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the Seattle Storm's 2020 WNBA title team's trip to the White House.

The team was scheduled to make the trip to Washington on Monday afternoon.

"I'm so sad to share that yesterday I tested positive for COVID-19," Clark said on Twitter. "It was a complete shock to me because I've taken all the precautions and I am fully vaccinated. Physically I'm feeling fine other than some congestion. Mentally it's been a rough 48 hours with all the mentions and concerns."

"I'm extremely sad I'll be missing the White House visit today honoring & celebrating our 2020 WNBA championship. That experience was one I was really looking forward to."

Clark helped the Storm to the 2020 WNBA title as the team's third leading scorer (10.0 points per game) on a team that included former league MVP Breanna Stewart and all-time great Sue Bird. She made the league's All-Defensive first team that season.

She signed as a free agent with the Washington Mystics in February but wasn't able to play this season because of foot surgery.
