Laura Miller completed her third year as the assistant coach for the Old Dominion women's rowing team in 2015-16.
In the 2015-16 season, Miller helped lead the Lady Monarchs to a sixth-place finish at the Big 12 Championship in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. The sixth-place finish was a two-spot improvement on the 2015 conference finish. The 2015-16 season also saw the 1V8 earn Big 12 Boat of the Week honors in late March after a dominant performance at the UNC Invite, which marked the first time an ODU boat earned that accolade.
Off the water, the Lady Monarchs also excelled in the classroom in 2015-16, as a total of 22 rowers earned Academic All-Big 12 honors, including 19 first team selections.
Miller was a graduate assistant coach at the University of Tennessee before joining ODU. In 2012 and 2013 she coached the Lady Volunteer novice squads and guided the 2012 team to a second-place finish in Conference USA.
Miller rowed collegiately at the University of Tennessee, where she was a 2010 Collegiate Rowing All-American. In 2010, she was named Conference USA Rower of the Year and participated in the NCAA Rowing Championship three of the four years she attended. She also rowed on an international level in New Zealand. In 2011, she competed at the New Zealand Banklink Club National Championships and won gold in the women's Senior Pair and a bronze in the women's premier quad.
Outside of rowing, Miller graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2010 with a Bachelor's of Science in biochemisty and earned a Master's of Science in kinesiology in May of 2013.
