“We are excited to honor Kathy Miller with a jersey retirement,” said Weber State Director of Athletics Tim Crompton. “She was an incredible player and to this day remains the all-time leading scorer. Kathy laid a foundation of excellence not only for women’s basketball but for all women’s sports. It is appropriate that Kathy Miller’s jersey is the first women’s athletic jersey retired at Weber State University.”
Miller was a part of the first-ever class to be inducted into the Weber State Athletics Hall of Fame in 1989.
