WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Lamoureux sisters got a nod by a North Dakota congressman at Capitol Hill.

U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., took to the House floor to recognize Jocelyne and Monique Lamoureux, two Grand Forks natives who helped the U.S. women's hockey team win a gold medal during this year's Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Cramer noted that March is Women's History Month and spoke on the sisters' hockey career.

"On behalf of all North Dakotans, I salute Jocelyne and Monique," Cramer said. "You set a high bar for women athletes across the nation and North Dakota honors your excellence.”
