Sports Illustrated hands national ranking to Sequoyah girlsOn the path that may lead to a third-straight state championship, the Sequoyah Girls basketball team recently received national recognition by being ranked as one of the country's top 25 high school teams in a Sports Illustrated poll.

"The Cherokee Nation is proud of the accomplishments and success of this athletic team," said Chad Smith, Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation. "These young ladies are a great example to all of our Cherokee youth. They display the leadership qualities and ambition that have led to a successful Cherokee Nation. Their achievement is a testament to Native American people and Sequoyah Schools."
