Stacey Miller was named the assistant golf professional at the Weibring Golf Club at Illinois State University in February. The former Illinois State women's golfer returned to campus, after competing in the LPGA Future's Tour with a full status.
Miller, who graduated from Illinois State in 2011 with a business management and organizational leadership degree, is level one in the Professional Golf Association PGM Program and is working towards her PGA certification.
Prior to her time on the LPGA Future's Tour, one which she recorded an eighth-place finish, Miller was a standout student-athlete at Illinois State. In the classroom, the Bloomington, Ill., native was named the 2010 ISU Female Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Also in 2010, Miller was a Presidential Scholar and earned the Missouri Valley Conference Dr. Charlotte West Scholar-Athlete Award. From 2007-2010, she was a NCAA Academic All-American.
Like she did in the classroom, Miller had great success on the golf course during her Redbird career. She earned Valley Medalist honors with a three-round score of 225 in 2009 and was named to the MVC All-Conference Team from 2008 through 2010. For her efforts throughout the regular season, Miller was named the Valley Golfer of the Week on 10 different occasions. The No. 1 ranked player in the Missouri Valley Conference by Golf Stat also competed in the 2012 U.S. Women's Amateur event.
