Athlete, post-1970

Becky Miller-White was a talented and versatile multi-sport athlete for J.W. North High School from 1978-1982. At North, Becky was a star performer in volleyball, basketball, track and field and cross country for her four years. In volleyball, she was All-Ivy League three times and All-County First team in 1982. In basketball, Becky was All-Ivy League two times, All-County First team and All-CIF First Team in 1982. She was a seven-time Ivy League Champion in track and field and was also All-Ivy League for one season in cross country.

At Biola University from 1982-1986, she was named to the volleyball and basketball All-Conference team each year and was the Most Valuable Player in the 1985 NAIA National Tournament. In volleyball, she re-wrote the Biola record book and still holds career school records for attack percentage (.573) and blocks (687) and ranks third in kills (1,622). During her senior season, Miller helped Biola to its first of many NAIA National Tournament appearances, finishing as the national runner-up in 1985. Once basketball season rolled around, she continued to dominate, averaging 20.2 points and 12.5 rebounds for her career. Miller still owns the career records for points (2,411), rebounds (1,492), field goals made (933) and free throws made (545). She also helped Biola reach its first NAIA women’s basketball National Championship in 1983-84 as the Eagles finished 23-10. Becky was named an NAIA All-American in volleyball and basketball for all four years at Biola, becoming the first women in NAIA history to be a four-time All-America in two different sports. She was inducted into the inaugural class for the Biola University Athletics Hall of Fame in 2012.

Becky is now an International speaker at women’s conferences and events. She is the author of Recapture, Finding Hope for a Famine of the Heart. Becky has been a staff member of The Grove Community Church for the past 13 years.

    Becky was a class high school and college athlete and she is a very special
    lady. She has always been so upbeat and she touches all those who know
    her or in some way come in contact with her. She is a most deserving
    inductee to the RSHOF.
