Katie Erickson

Vashon Island native Virginia Miller has committed to the Stanford University class of 2021. Miller will throw the javelin for Stanford Track & Field starting next fall. Miller follows in her father Foss Miller’s footsteps as he also threw javelin in the PAC-12 conference. Coached by her father, Miller received the silver medal at the AAU Junior Olympics in both 2015 and 2016. Miller has thrown the javelin since the ninth grade and has a personal record of 140 feet and 8 inches.

In addition, Miller has served the Annie Wright community as ASB President. Miller has aspirations to attend business school and go to the Olympics, as well as “starting a small pottery company and living on a small island, possibly in the San Juans.”

Virginia has also pursued her passion for horses as a junior show jumping competitor and took 1st Place at the $1,000 Open Jumper Classic Thunderbird Showpark.

Miller has been a lightweight rower for Vashon Rowing Club for all four years of high school and placed 8th in Youth Nationals in 2016.  She was also awarded Performance of the Year in 2014, 2015 and 2016.

When asked why she is so unfathomably amazing, she replied: “I think because I’m good at working hard, pushing myself and showing up to practice when I don’t want to. I have a lot of fun doing whatever I do and because I have fun, I have a desire to be excellent.”
