Yellowjackets win fourth straight

By Brett Voss
 
The Meridian Yellowjacket boys basketball team may be young, but they have already learned how to win under first-year head coach Theo Bogney. Halfway through the first round of District 17- 2A competition, the Jackets (3-0 in district, 10-4 overall) have fought their way to the top, and they keep finding different ways to win. After demolishing Axtell, 86-42, last Tuesday night, Meridian came-from-behind to knock off Bosque County rival Valley Mills convincingly, 72-48, last Friday.
