CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Mount St. Joseph University is proud to announce that sophomore pitcher Sarah Miller (Fishers, Ind./St. Theodore Guerin) has been named to the NCAA DIII Google Cloud/CoSIDA All-District team, which was announced on Thursday.
Miller will advance to the NCAA Division III Academic All-America ballot, with the national team scheduled for release on June 4. Both the District and National teams are determined by a vote of NCAA Division III sports information personnel from across the nation and combines both academic and athletic accomplishments.
On the diamond Miller was the ace of the staff for Coach Goderwis again this season. She led the team and tied a school record with 16 wins this season, which was also good for the second best in the HCAC. She was also tied atop the HCAC with a 1.45 ERA, leading a staff who had an ERA among the top-10 in the nation all season long. Miller was also third in the conference and tops on the team with 95 strikeouts this season. She was also named first team All-HCAC and to the All-tournament team for the HCAC Championship.
While she absolutely gets it done in the circle for the Lions, Miller is a very well rounded student-athlete. She exemplifies everything that the Mount's mission is about. Sarah is the Co-Founder of the Rosary Club that meets every Wednesday and was a Mission Mug Award winner. Sarah has been a retreat leader and went on a mission trip to New Orleans during winter break of her freshmen year. She is on the executive board of Interfaith Club and is also the student leader of Campus Ministry. Despite all of her commitments Sarah still excels in the classroom carrying a 3.89 GPA while double-majoring in Social Work and Sociology.
Sarah becomes the second Lion this year to be recognized by CoSIDA, joining senior football player AJ Glines. She is also the lone representative of the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference on the list.
The Mount St. Joseph softball finished the 2019 season with a program record 35 wins this season, and won the programs first ever regular season HCAC Championship.
