Western Kentucky junior outfielder Anderson Miller, a former Lafayette standout, was named first-team All-Conference on Tuesday. The squad was voted on by Conference USA's head coaches, sports information directors and one media representative from each institution.
Miller ranked among the league's leaders in home runs (12 — 3rd), runs scored (47 — 3rd), walks (41 — 4th), triples (3 — 5th), slugging percentage (.560 — 5th), total bases (108 — 6th) and on-base percentage (.419 — 9th).
Miller provided two game-winning homers in the seventh innings against Evansville and Florida International, along with a game-tying two-run homer in the ninth inning at Kentucky to spark a rally where WKU eventually won 5-3 in extra innings on April 14.
Miller had 57 hits and drove in 35 runs from his leadoff position in the lineup, ending the season with a .295 batting average at the plate.
Never miss a local story.
