The Grant Union Prospectors girls basketball team got its first win of the season Thursday, beating Weston-McEwen 38-30. On Monday, the team lost to Joseph, 56-51.

The Eagle was unable to reach head coach Jason Miller for comment.

On June 9, the Lady Pros left it all on the court in their 71-18 loss to Crane, the defending state champions.

“They’re fighters,” Miller said after the game. “They love to battle.”

Miller, longtime Pros football coach, said the Lady Pros put pressure on the Mustangs’ offense. As a team, he said the girls played better defense and got more rebounds.

Miller said he is trying to get the team to understand what he wants as their coach, working through the transition from the previous year.

He said the team will continue to “keep working on all the things that constitute a good basketball team.”
