By Twila Perkins

ANADARKO, Okla. – Three Seminole Tribal members are tearing up the basketball courts in Oklahoma.

Cara Osceola, Kaitlen Osceola and Curtis Osceola Jr. play basketball for the Anadarko Warriors. Their proud parents are Curtis Osceola Sr., of Hollywood, Fla., and Tara Leonard, of Anadarko, Okla.

Cara and Kaitlen play for the Lady Warriors, who are ranked No. 2 in their division, with a record of 20-1.

The Lady Warriors defeated three competing teams, including a team ranked No. 4 in the division, to become the champions of the Heart of Oklahoma Tournament.

Currently, they are undefeated in conference play.

Curtis plays for the Anadarko Warriors’ seventh-grade team. The team’s record is 10-4. Curtis also excels in academics and recently made Anadarko Public School’s Principal’s Honor Roll.

Both the boys’ and girls’ teams are made up of 75 percent Native Americans.
