Geoff Miller to be Inducted into North Carolina Lacrosse Hall of Fame

Goucher College Director of Athletics Geoff Miller will be inducted into the North Carolina Lacrosse Hall of Fame later this year, the Eastern and Western North Carolina Chapters of U. S. Lacrosse announced late last week.

Miller, who is currently in his 24th and final year as Athletics Director at Goucher, joins five others in this year's Hall of Fame Class. The induction ceremony will take place on June 9th, at the Grandover Resort in Greensboro, N.C.

Miller earned a spot in the North Carolina Lacrosse Hall of Fame due to his time as the head men's lacrosse coach at Guilford College in Greensboro from 1981 to 1987.

There, Miller posted a 63-27 record in six seasons, eventually earning the Francis L. (Babe) Kraus Award in 1986 as the Division III coach of the year. That season, Miller led the Quakers to a sixth-place ranking in the final United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) poll, which remains Guilford's highest rating.

While at Guilford, Miller led the Quakers to a pair of Tri-State League titles in 1981 and 1982, as he coached seven All-Americans and three North-South Star All-Star Game participants. 

Miller left Guilford after the 1987 season to take over as the Director of Athletics at Washington College. He then moved to Goucher in 1994 in the same position, which he has held since. Last week, Miller announced his retirement effective March 16th from his position at Goucher, ending his almost 38-year career in intercollegiate athletics.
