Grambling’s Joanna Miller nailed a 3-pointer with 6:16 remaining to pull the Lady Tigers within two points of Prairie View at 59-57, but that would be the last shot from the field GSU would make the rest of the way.

One of these programs that I am very proud to have as part of our 4-H Club program is shooting sports.
