Cullowhee, N.C. - Stacey Radford Miller, Western Carolina Assistant Athletic Director for Compliance, will be inducted into the Barton College Athletics Hall of Fame this weekend in Wilson. A reception and banquet for the Athletic Hall of Fame inductees will be held Friday evening (Oct. 26).
Miller, a native of Wilson, N.C., is joined by inductees Randy Pridgen (class of 1983) and Shemkia Reid (class of 2002).
The first announcement of Miller's induction was made when she was a featured speaker for Barton's Celebration of Girls and Women in Sports Day, held on February 2. She played at Fike High School and went on to become the first All-American in the history of Barton's women's soccer program. The Bulldog teams were 46-27-2 as she played under head coaches Scott Ginn and Todd Bailess.
In her senior season, Barton won the regular season and tournament championships of the Carolinas-Virginia Athletics Conference (CVAC) and hosted the NCAA Division II South Regional championship match.
Miller later coached Barton's women's soccer program, guiding the Bulldogs to a 38-31-1 record as the team's head coach from 2004-06.
Miller, who also heads WCU's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, is married to current Catamount women's soccer head coach, Chad Miller. The couple has two sons, Thomas and Carson.
