Written by: Seminole State Staff
Miller has been with the Seminole State’s athletics program for 28 years as the head softball coach, leading the Raiders to over 1,200 wins over the course of her career.
Miller has led the Raiders softball team to the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) tournament for 18 of the last 19 years, as well as to the Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) State Title in 2012 and Mid-Florida Conference (MFC) Title in 2017, earning Coach of the Year awards those same years.
Originally from Jasper, Missouri, Miller's contributions as a head coach have not only made an impact on her players and team, but on her community. In addition to coaching, Miller is a professor of wellness and health and serves as an athletic academic advisor for student-athletes. She also hosts an annual tournament at the BOOMBAH Soldiers Creek Park, which has become known as the Courtney Miller Invitational.
Since 1982, the Hall of Fame has honored outstanding male and female high school, college and professional athletes, coaches, officials, sports personalities, and sports-related volunteers who reside or at one time resided in Seminole County. In addition to the Athlete and Contributor awards, Legacy Award winners contributed to Seminole County athletics prior to 1999, and Inclusion Award winners are recognized athletes or contributors with intellectual, developmental, or physical special needs.
The induction ceremony will be held in conjunction with Seminole County’s annual high school Night of Champions on Thursday, May 18, at 7 p.m. at Hagerty High School.
The Seminole State Raider Athletics Department was established in 1965. The Raiders compete in three NJCAA Division I sports: baseball, softball and women’s golf and men’s and women’s cross country.
