GREENSBORO, N.C.- Former Guilford College men's lacrosse coach Geoff Miller was named to the North Carolina Lacrosse Hall of Fame Class of 2018 last Friday. Miller is one of six inductees to be honored in this year's class. The N.C. Lacrosse Hall of Fame Induction Celebration will be held on June 9, 2018, at The Grandover Resort in Greensboro.

Miller served as Guilford's men's lacrosse coach from 1981-1987 and posted a school-record 63-27 record in seven seasons. In 1986, Miller won the Francis L. (Babe) Kraus Award as the Division III Coach of the Year and led the Quakers to a sixth-place ranking in the final United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association (USILA) Poll, which remains Guilford's highest ranking. Under Miller's directing the Quakers captured the 1981 and 1982 Tri-State League titles.

During his time at Guilford, Miller coached seven All-Americans and three North-South All-Star Game participants. He also served as Guilford's assistant athletics director and Physical Education Director. A 2005 Guilford Athletics Hall of Fame Honoree, Miller came to Greensboro after receiving a master's degree in sport management from the University of Massachusetts. He was a two-sport standout for Amherst College and received honors as a Little School All-America as an offensive tackle on the gridiron and earned All-Snively Division honors in lacrosse. Miller was the recipient of Amherst's Mossman Cup, presented to the senior who brought the greatest honor to the college through athletics.

Miller has served as the athletics director at Goucher (Md.) College since 1994 and recently announced his impending retirement. Goucher has won numerous titles under Miller's direction and the Gophers' 19 athletics programs have a combined grade-point average of over 3.0 throughout his tenure.
