JFK Women's Basketball Player Gets Some ESPN Love
Yasmine Fuller, a guard for Burien’s John F. Kennedy Catholic High School women’s basketball team, recently received some serious media love from ESPN’s “Rise Magazine,” where she credited her relationship with WNBA star Sheryl Swoopes for developing her work ethic.
According to the story:
…Fuller thrives on putting defenders to the test of keeping up with her lightning-quick first step or her ability to bury treys from several feet beyond the arc. The 5-foot-8 senior combo guard averaged 16.7 points and 2.3 assists per contest in guiding the Lancers to the Class 3A crown last winter. She also earned Seamount League and state tourney MVP honors.
Kennedy has reaped the benefits of Fuller’s hard work. Her first year with the Lancers, the team rebounded from a disappointing 2006-07 postseason to end the year as Class 3A runner-up. Individually, Fuller earned the first of two consecutive All-Seamount League selections.
