The 2012-13 season was Beth Miller's fifth with the Northwestern women's golf program. With Miller's assistance, Northwestern has qualified for four-consecutive NCAA Regionals from 2010-13, won the program's first Big Ten title in 2013, reached the 2013 NCAA Championships while breaking program records along the way.
Miller helped guide the Wildcats to a banner 2012-13 season, one that saw Northwestern tie for first at the 2013 Big Ten Championships, with all six competitors placing in the top 25, including three in the top 10. NU shared the 2013 Big Ten Championship title with Purdue as freshman Kaitlin Park led the way with her sixth-place finish and spot on the All-Championship Team. Miller helped coach Park to Big Ten Freshman of the Year accolades and first-team All-Big Ten honors, along with sophmore Hana Lee, in 2012-13.
Following the 2013 Big Ten Championships, NU had a strong showing at the NCAA East Regional, finishing sixth and punching its ticket to the 2013 NCAA Championships. Making its second NCAA championship appearance in program history, Northwestern finished amongst the top 15 teams in the country. Northwestern set a new program record, carding a 284 in two rounds during the 2012-13 season and had 18 sub-300 rounds.
Since joining Emily Fletcher's coaching staff for the 2008-09 season, three Wildcats have achieved four All-Big Ten honors, eight NGCA All-America Scholar awards have been distributed and the team has received 24 Academic All-Big Ten honors.
Miller joined the Wildcats in 2008 after spending a year as the lead coach at the Green to Tee Golf Academy in Glencoe, Ill. There she coached over 90 golfers and helped to coordinate a number of tournaments and projects as well as assisting in the growth of the Academy. Previously, she spent time as a professional golfer, competing in the 2005 U.S. Women's Open at Cherry Hills Country Club in Denver, Colo.
