TYLER- Ja'Kayla Bowie is officially college bound. On Monday morning, the Robert E. Lee student signed a letter of intent to play basketball for Texas State next year. She was surrounded my family, friends, and coaches as she made her exciting decision.

The senior guard averaged 12.5 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 steals for the Lady Raiders last season. She also earned first-team all district 11-6A honors during her junior campaign.

"It feels great. I'd like to thank my family and friends for supporting me every step of the way," Bowie explained, "I can't wait to play college ball and show what I'm made of."
