Baylee Miller took the next step in her softball career on Thursday, November 11, as she signed to attend North Greenville University. Miller was joined by family, friends, coaching staff, and others at the Lake View High School Athletic Office. Miller has enjoyed playing softball since she was 8 years old. She has become a very good player as evidenced by her playing a role in winning the Dixie Youth World Series in 2015, awards and medals in travel ball, and most recently as part of the Lake View High School Softball team who won the high school state A championship in 2021.
Not only is Baylee a good softball player, she also plays volleyball for Lake View High School.
Coach Eddie Collins and Coach Jake Hyatt influenced Miller the most in the sport she loves.
Miller extends special thanks to Coach Linda McGowan, the travel ball team Ladies Lightning coach, for her assistance with the North Greenville University scholarship.
Miller will carry many memories from high school to the university next year of which being on a state championship softball team must rank high.
Miller should fit well at North Greenville University as this is a small university where she can obtain an education in a smaller classroom setting somewhat similar to classes at Lake View. She will major in Occupational Therapy. She should also fit well into the softball program there where she will excel in the outfield with her speed.
When not on the practice or playing field, or studying, Baylee enjoys shopping and hanging out with family, friends, and her boyfriend.
Miller’s parents, Christopher and Laura Miller, look forward to turning the page in Baylee’s life and opening another chapter.
Coach Brandy Huggins stated “Baylee has worked very hard since she was a little girl playing softball. I am extremely proud of her and looking forward to seeing her play at the next level.”
