After a stellar career at Greeley, she arrived at Colgate as part of current coach Heather Young’s first recruiting class. She became just the third player in Patriot League women’s lacrosse history to be named All-Patriot League First Team for four consecutive seasons.

Her Raiders teams swept the Patriot League regular season and tournament championships in 2009 and also tied for regular season honors in 2011.

In 2012, she was Patriot League Midfielder of the Year and Colgate’s Female Student-Athlete of the Year.

Courtney’s name appears several times in the Colgate record books. Currently she is:

  • First in Draw Controls (201)
  • Third in Career Points (241)
  • Third in Goals (168)
  • Fourth in Assists (73)

In 2016, Miller was named to the Patriot League’s Silver Anniversary Team, which honors the 25 best players in each sport over the 25 year history of the Patriot League. Courtney’s stats at Colgate put her in the Patriot League’s Top 10 in goals, assists, points and draw controls.

Courtney has continued her lacrosse career after Colgate as a member of the New York Athletic Club women’s team since graduation and has been on the Israeli National Team roster since 2015.
