Director, TOC Lacrosse

Coaching student-athletes to their full potential is the goal of Top of the Class Lacrosse. We provide a comprehensive experience for all levels and expert coaching from the game's top coaches. Director Lisa Miller has spent the last 30 years working with young women at the international, collegiate, high school, and middle school levels. In her 11 year tenure at Harvard she coached two Ivy League Rookies of the Year, 42 All-Ivy League selections, and the Ivy League's leading scorer in five different seasons. As the Syracuse program's first head coach, Miller's teams rapidly ascended into the sports hierarchy making the NCAA Tournament six times in her ten seasons with an Elite Eight appearance in 2007. During her Syracuse tenure, 17 of the orange players were named to the All-America Squad and 31 were selected to All-Region teams. In International play, with Miller at the helm of the program in 2009, the Canadian National Team medalled for the first time in 25 years. Miller is currently working with the Brown University Women's Lacrosse program.
