SAN ANTONIO -- It's the scream that pierced through the AT&T Center and across the country Monday evening at the end of the Spurs overtime win over the Warriors. The powerful scream was picked up over the airwaves and broadcasted through television sets everywhere.
A day later, those vocal chords remained a mystery leaving basketball fans all over the web wondering who was this Screaming Spurs Lady ?
KENS 5 got a phone call Tuesday afternoon from a friend of Val Garcia outing the 23-year-old dental assistant as the Spurs' shrieker.
I think everyone was pretty loud. said Garcia. I just have such a high-pitch scream.
Garcia doesn't attend many Spurs games which could be the reason fans have never heard this scream before.
It's like i wanted the Spurs to hear it so they wouldn't lose their fire said Garcia.
In no time, the Screaming Spurs Lady lit up the internet, but as the day dragged on other Spurs fans began taking credit for those powerful pipes.
I swear my eyes were going to pop out of my face. said Garcia. I was totally out of breath. After the game I felt lightheaded and my voice was shot.
Garcia said she doesn't have a ticket for Game 2 against the Warriors.
