North Dakota Olympians
Lamoureux twins will represent North Dakota/USA at Olympics
As all eyes turn to the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, North Dakotans and women's hockey fans will be watching twin sisters Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux of Grand Forks. The "hockey twins," as they've been called, have once again been named to the United States women's ice hockey team.
The Lamoureuxs are recent grads of the University of North Dakota where they skated for most of their collegiate career. Jocelyne amassed 125 goals and 160 assists in 149 games. Monique had 113 goals and 152 assists in 149 games.
If the name is familiar to you, the twins are already silver medalists from the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. They are all-time leading scorers in the WCHA. And they hail from a family of six siblings who all play hockey at an elite level. Sports Illustrated even published a piece about the legacy of the Lamoureux family, called: The House of Hockey.
The Sochi games begin Feb. 8.
