Published Date4\1\2014
Mount Marty College is pleased to announce the commitment of pitcher and outfielder, Justin Miller, to attend Mount Marty College this fall and participate in the baseball program. Miller will graduate this spring from Sioux Falls Washington High School.

Miller has had an outstanding high school career for the Sioux Falls High School Washington Club team and Sioux Falls East Legion team and is coming off a strong 2013 junior season. For his efforts Miller was named First Team All-Region and First Team All-State as a pitcher for the high school club season. He carried a 3-1 record with 1 save as a pitcher and also sported a 0.58 earned run average. Miller struck out 22 batters in 24 innings of work and put up impressive numbers as an outfielder for the Sioux Falls East Legion team. He produced a .369 batting average with 58 hits, 10 doubles, 5 triples while scoring 46 runs and stealing 19 bases.

Mount Marty College head baseball coach, Andy Bernatow, is happy to announce the commitment of Justin to the Lancer Baseball program. "I am very excited about the commitment of Justin. He is a huge pick-up for our baseball program and the College. He has the ability to be an exceptional player for the Lancers and his athleticism should translate into a top of the order hitter for us. He also has the ability to provide for us as a pitcher with a very live arm."

Miller and his family are very familiar with Mount Marty College and the athletics program. Miller's sister, Jenny Miller Krier, was an All-American basketball player for the Lancers and his brother, Jared Miller, is currently in his fourth year starting for MMC and has been one of the better hitters the program has seen.

Coach Bernatow continues, "I am excited to have another Miller at Mount Marty."

Off the field Miller has also had a distinguished academic career in high school. He was named Academic All-State for football and was listed on the "A" Honor Roll for Sioux Falls Washington High School. At Mount Marty College Miller plans to major in biology. He is the son of Jay and Julie Miller of Sioux Falls, SD. Miller is the recipient of a MMC Honors Scholarship for his academic achievement and will also be receiving a baseball scholarship at Mount Marty College.
