2015 HIGHLIGHTS:
* Started all 25 matches of the season in goal for Florida State as the Noles advanced to the College Cup for the fifth consecutive season.
* Anchored an FSU defense that tied for first in the ACC with 15 shutouts, good for 10th best in the NCAA on the season.
* Recorded eight solo shutouts to increase her career total to 27, second-most in FSU history in just her first two seasons as a Seminole.
* Helped the Noles record three separate streaks of over 400 minutes without allowing opponents to score a goal – 503:39 from September 24 to October 17, 472:40 from September 4 to September 24 and 415:45 from November 8 to December 4.
* Set a pair of NCAA Tournament records as the Seminoles registered 10 consecutive shutouts in the postseason, as well as held opponents without a goal for 931:47 of play during the NCAA Tournament. Those records surpassed the 2003-04 North Carolina team that had eight straight shutouts and 829:31 without a goal over two seasons.
* Earned her first ACC weekly honor on October 13 as she helped lead the Noles to a 1-0 victory over No. 1 North Carolina on October 11. Miller assisted on the game’s only goal in the 79th minute – the first assist of her career – as her dropkick found Berglind Thorvaldsdottir behind the UNC backline and the forward put it in the back of the net on her first touch. It marked the second time in school history that FSU has defeated the No. 1 team in the country.
* Posted six shutouts in ACC play – No. 22 Duke, No. 16 Notre Dame, Pitt, NC State, No. 1 North Carolina and No. 7 Virginia Tech – and had seven shutouts against teams ranked, or receiving votes, in the NSCAA poll.
* Made a season-high seven saves at No. 2 Virginia on October 25, holding the Cavaliers without a goal in the run of play despite the Seminoles playing with 10 members for over 60 minutes after a red card and subsequent PK conversion led to a 1-0 win for UVA.
* Stopped a penalty kick from UVA’s Meghan Cox in the seventh round of the shootout in the ACC Championship, setting the stage for Berglind Thorvaldsdottir to score in the bottom of the round to secure FSU’s 7-6 victory in PKs over No. 1 Virginia for the Seminoles’ third ACC Championship in a row and fourth title overall.
* There were 13 games where the opponents were limited to two shots on goal or fewer, including four matches where the opponent finished with zero shots on frame – Southern Cal (Aug. 23), Southeastern Louisiana (Aug. 28), Grand Canyon (Sept. 13) and No. 21 Texas A&M (Nov. 27).
* Finished No. 17 in the NCAA with a .608 goals-against average, good for No. 4 in the ACC

2014 HIGHLIGHTS:
* Played every minute of the season in goal for the Seminoles as Florida State posted a 24-1-1 record and earned its first NCAA National Championship in program history.
* Directed an FSU defense that led the ACC and finished second in the NCAA with a 0.34 goals-against average. The 0.34 goals against average is an FSU record.
* Surrendered only nine goals on the season, easily setting a program record. The previous season low was 15 in 2008 and 2012.
* Helped Florida State to a 9-0-1 record in conference play, its first undefeated conference season in program history, as the Noles allowed just two goals in ten conference games – a 2-1 victory over No. 9 Virginia Tech and a 1-1 tie at No. 5 UNC
* The Seminoles did not allow a goal in all six games of the 2014 NCAA Tournament, becoming just the second team to win a national championship (2003 North Carolina) by posting six shutouts in the NCAA postseason.
* Recorded an NCAA-record 19 shutouts on the season, including the final seven games of the season.
* Posted two shutout streaks of over 500 minutes – ending the season on a 630:03 streak, with the last goal allowed coming against Notre Dame in the ACC semifinal on November 7 and registering a 589:00 streak over the span of seven games from September 18 to October 12.
* Set an FSU overall and freshman record with 24 wins in goal.
* FSU’s defense limited opponents to only 147 shots on the entire season, with 55 shots on goal.
