Lamson, Outie named Hopi High Royalty

POLACCA - Courtney Outie was crowned queen and Matt Lamson was crowned king Oct. 6 during the homecoming game at Hopi High.

The crowning of the king and queen was one of the few homecoming events that wasn't cancelled due to a rain, thunder and lightening storm.

The powder puff game for Thursday night and the parade and pep rally for Friday were cancelled due to the rainy weather. Hopi High Principal Glenn Gilman said it was the first time in 21 years that the parade was cancelled.

Outie, a 17-year-old senior, said she was excited and happy to be voted in as homecoming queen.

Outie said she was going to "frame" her crown.

"I thank all the people who voted for me. It means a lot to me," she said. "I thank all those who helped me out."

Outie, who maintains a B average, runs cross-country and for the track team and plays basketball.

Outie hopes to play college basketball next year and wants to go to a college in New York, but hasn't decided which one.

She is the daughter of Rosiebell and Larson Onsae.

Lamson, an 18-year-old senior, said he was excited to be voted in as king.

"Oh man, I'm just so happy," he said. "I thank the people who voted for me. I didn't think I would get it because there are so many other students who are better known than me."

Lamson, who maintains a B average, runs cross-country, plays basketball and runs for the track team. He has been on three of the Hopi High boys' state championship cross-country teams.

Lamson plans to major in computers at Cornell or Texas A & M next year.

He is the son of Ralph and Ernestine Lamson.
