GTM Sportswear® and the National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) are pleased to announce Michelle Miller as the GTM Sportswear® Athlete of the Month for February 2011. Miller was recognized at a press conference at Polytechnic High School, Pasadena, California on May 23, 2011. She received GTM® merchandise and will be featured in various GTM Sportswear® marketing materials.
Miller, a junior basketball player, scored a season-high 47 points with 10 rebounds and six steals in a win over La Canada Flintridge Prep School and had 26 points, 12 rebounds and five blocks in a victory against arch-rival Palos Verdes Chadwick High. The 5-foot-10 Miller also earned ESPN RISE Cal-Hi Sports State Athlete of the Week honors. Miller, who leads the state of California in scoring with a 32.3 average, has scored 40 or more points three times this season and 39 points in two other games. She also averages 13.4 rebounds per game. The three-sport athlete was named All-Southern Section as a setter in volleyball and made the Southern Section swimming meet in the 50-yard freestyle – without competing in the off-season in either sport. Also an outstanding student, Miller takes five AP courses and holds a 4.9 grade-point average (on a 5.0 scale).
“The National High School Coaches Association is proud to recognize Michele for her outstanding performances, not only on the field, but in the school and community as well,” said Bobby Ferraro, Jr., Executive Director of the National High School Coaches Association. “It’s truly an honor to recognize someone of this stature.”

Each month six finalists were selected by the NHSCA and presented via ballot to a group of high school sports writers, high school coaches, NHSCA and GTM® representatives to choose the winner. Out of the eight recipients of the monthly award, one athlete will be chosen as the GTM Sportswear® Athlete of the Year.
