Cherokee girls take second place in NAYO tournament

In what one organizer dubbed one of the most successful NAYO tournaments yet, a team representing the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians took second place in the weekend-long event held in Cherokee. The Dream Team, consisting of EBCI tribal members from several area high schools, took the runner-up trophy in the 15-17 girls division in the tournament.

They lost 59-44 to the Rainmakers, representing the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, in the championship game held at the Charles George Memorial Arena on the evening of Saturday, March 31.
