COLUMBUS, Ohio – Melissa Miller, a letterwinner on the Ohio State women’s soccer team from 2003-06, was officially inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame Sept. 27. Miller, along with 13 other inductees, was honored during a dinner at the Archie M. Griffin Grand Ballroom in the Ohio Union.
A letterwinner for the Buckeyes from 2003-06, Miller became the Buckeyes’ first two-time All-American, garnering second team accolades in 2003 and 2004. Miller earned All-Big Ten honors all four seasons, picking up first team laurels in 2004 and 2006 and second team honors in 2003 and 2005 in addition to NSCAA first team All-Great Lakes Region selections in 2003 and 2004.
A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, Miller anchored the Buckeye defense all four seasons, making 84 career starts, and helped guide the Buckeyes to a pair of NCAA Tournament appearances in 2003 and 2004 and a Big Ten Tournament championship in 2004. As a freshman in 2003, Miller helped the Buckeyes to nine shutouts before bolstering a Buckeye back line that picked up 13 clean sheets in 2004, a number that currently sits tied for a program record.
