Rancho Cucamonga High School senior volleyball standout Kylie Miller has landed the first of what is sure to be many All-American honors when she was lauded a first-team selection by Under Armour.
Miller, a 5-foot-11 setter, was one of just 24 players nationwide chosen to the first team.
“It’s a nice honor. I don’t think it has really sunk in yet because I’m so focused on our team in the playoffs,” she said. “It’s nice to be mentioned along with so many other great players.”
Miller, who has committed to UCLA, has 236 kills and is hitting at a whopping 54% percent clip for the Cougars (26-6), who are ranked first in Division 1A. She also has 50 aces, 38 blocks, 178 digs and 267 assists.
The approximately 600 nominations are a record number for the program, resulting in a combined 150 All-Americans and Honorable Mention All-Americans. Many already committed to play collegiate volleyball at some of the top schools in the country.
Miller and all the other players named to the the first team will be invited to play in the Under Armour All-America Volleyball Match & Skills Competition which will be held at the CenturyLink Center on Dec. 18 in conjunction with the 2015 AVCA Annual Convention.
