Mexican athletes continue to make history abroad with impressive performances in various sports fields. One of them is Lou López-Sénéchal, the first woman born in Mexico to be selected for the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) draft.

Lou López is a 24-year-old basketball player, the daughter of a Mexican father and a French mother. Born in Guadalajara, she spent her childhood in Grenoble, France, following her parents’ separation. She later moved to Dublin, Ireland, where she played basketball and attended high school.

In 2018, Lou moved to the United States to pursue her passion for basketball and take advantage of full scholarships offered by various universities. She played for four seasons for the Fairfield Stags of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) division, at the University of Fairfield. In her last year as a marketing student, Lou played with the Huskies team from the University of Connecticut, where her talent caught the attention of the women’s league.

Over the past five years, Lou has achieved various titles and accolades before being drafted. These include MAAC Player of the Year, MAAC Tournament Most Valuable Player, MAAC Rookie of the Year, and MAAC All-Rookie Team. Her impressive achievements and performance made her an attractive pick for the Dallas Wings during the WNBA draft.

The Consulate General of the United States in Guadalajara congratulated Lou López for making history in women’s sports. They noted that she will play for the Dallas Wings and expressed their admiration for her talent.

Lou López’s draft debut with the Dallas Wings marks an important moment for Mexican women in sports. She paves the way for future generations of Mexican women to excel in basketball and other sports fields. We look forward to seeing her performance during the WNBA season starting on May 19, 2023.
