There were two prominent Oregon sisters playing for the Louisville Women's Basketball Team in the lop-sided 93-60 loss to the U-Conn Huskies Tuesday night. 

 

The Schimmel sisters; Shoni and Jude grew up on the Umatilla Indian Reservation near Pendleton.

 

The community went all out in support of their "girls".

 

Gary George, spokesman for the Wildhorse Casino where they held a big viewing party says the Schimmel sisters reaching such a high level is awe-inspiring to Native American kids, and the sisters have done a lot to help tribal kids know that can achieve anything they want.

 

"They were born here in Pendleton, Oregon, and are members of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indians and grew up here on the reservation. So we're pretty excited about their achievements and contributions to the success of the Louisville team. I think it really sends a great message to our tribal youth; you can do it, you can achieve it. We have some great athletes, but you just have to put forth the effort."

 

George says he hopes to help plan a celebration, just to honor the girls’ achievements when they get a chance to come home.
