With Miller blazing the trail, Cathedral finished runner-up in the CIF San Diego Section Championship to make it to the Open Division of the CIF state championship, finishing the year with a 30-6 record.

The daughter of two former UC San Diego athletes—dad played volleyball and mom rowed—Miller, a Notre Dame commit, will get to celebrate her achievements later this month by playing in the Under Armour High School All-America match with the rest of the first team honorees.
Miller is still early in what is sure to be a long career in volleyball, but she already has some sage advice for younger athletes.
“You have to be confident,” she said. “There will always be people who tell you that you can’t do something because you are too short, or too slow, or too weak. If you can believe in yourself even when others don’t, you will find the strength to reach your goals and prove those people wrong.”
“Lindsey is driven to become the best of the best,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Johnson of his future middle blocker. “She has all of the tools necessary to become one of the best middles in the country. She has great length, good speed, a good arm, and possesses a motor to keep working. She has the ability to score at multiple locations along the net and will become an excellent blocker as she refines her movement and her eye-work.”
Congrats to Lindsey Miller on her commitment to Notre Dame - “I’m so excited to announce my commitment to play D1 volleyball at Notre Dame, and am so thankful to my friends, family, teammates, & coaches who have always supported and encouraged me ☘️ #CoastGoesToCollege #GoIrish pic.twitter.com/vin7Kb9L2q— CoastVBC (@CoastVBC) May 14, 2018
