TAHLEQUAH - The Sequoyah High School boys and girls basketball teams are competing in the state basketball tournament this week in Oklahoma City. This is the seventh consecutive year that both teams qualified for state. A pep rally was held March 6 at the high school for the teams followed by a send-off through town with stops at the Cherokee Immersion Charter School, W.W. Keeler Tribal Complex and W.W. Hastings before heading to Oklahoma City.

The boys lost to Spiro 59-56 on March 7, while the girls defeated Washington 68-44. However, the Lady Indians' bid for a third straight state title was cut short in a semifinal upset against Christian Heritage 51-48 on March 8.
