Yazzie fires up her teammates

 


FARMINGTON — When the Farmington girls basketball team played earlier this month in the Lady Bronco Tournament at Kirtland Central, the Lady Scorpions saw a new side of their senior point guard.

On Jan. 9, Meeya Yazzie helped bring the Lady Scorps back from an early-game, 12-point deficit against Kirtland. She showed a lot of emotion while doing it, yelling out after consecutive FHS baskets during a third-quarter run.

"I got super excited. I don't think my teammates (have seen) that side of me in a while," Yazzie said. "In that game, I saw them start loosening up for the first time, in that second half especially. I think when I get like that, it helps pump everyone up, which is important, because attitude and confidence is everything."
