DURHAM- Duke senior field hockey Hannah Miller helped the United States U-21 Women’s National Team win the bronze medal at the Uniphar 5 Nations Tournament held in Dublin, Ireland last week.
The United States finished the competition with an overall record of 2-2 in the round robin, outscoring their opponents 13-4. The United States took on the Netherlands, India, Ireland and Ukraine in a round robin, earning wins over Ukraine and Ireland to earn a spot in the match for the third place. Miller finished the tournament with three goals, including a brace in the space of two minutes to lead the United States to a thrilling 3-2 win over host Ireland in the final round-robin game. In the ensuing third-place match, Miller and the United States defeated Ireland 4–0 to claim bronze.
Miller was one of 20 athletes selected to the U-21 Women’s National Team roster. The Uniphar 5 Nations Tournament was the first competition after the FIH Junior Women’s World Cup of Hockey earlier this spring. Miller has been a mainstay in the United States Women’s National Team system as a member of the U-19 and U-17 teams during her career. She joined the U-19 team for a tour of Germany in the spring before her rookie season at Duke and captained the U-17 team during a tour of Uruguay.
A three-year starter for the Blue Devils offense, Miller has been a dynamic part of Duke’s offense throughout his career. In 54 career games, the Malvern, Pennsylvania native has 18 goals and eight assists for 44 points. She currently ranks 48th in Duke history in points and is six points away from becoming the 42nd Blue Devil in program history to score 50 career points.
The Blue Devils return to campus for the 2022 season in early August and the season is expected to begin in early September.
