The road to the softball College World Series in Oklahoma City, Okla. has been long and winding for former Diamond High School star Kristen Miller.
But that won’t matter at all to Miller when she and her Arizona State teammates go for the collegiate softball crown, beginning Thursday.
The senior catcher, who began her collegiate career at nearby Long Beach State, has played a big part in the Sun Devils rise to the top, hitting a solid .329 with 16 home runs and 56 RBis. That followed last season’s break-through campaign when she hit 11 home runs with 26 RBIs and a .507 slugging percentage.
Miller, the younger sister of former Diamond Bar baseball player Dustin Miller who helped Cal State Fullerton to the College World Series in 2003, and her teammates open the Women’s College World Series against Alabama at 4 p.m. All games are on ESPN HD.
Here’s to bringing home the title for this former Valley star.
