March 26, 2012

With the bases loaded in the fourth inning, no outs and his team up 9-0, Maiden pitcher Jason Gantt put faith in himself, and trust his head coach.

Gantt eventually got out of the inning unscathed, leading Maiden (7-4, 4-1) to a 10-0 mercy rule victory at home against East Burke (3-6, 1-3).

Doug Miller steps down as Blue Devils’ coach

March 23, 2012

Doug Miller resigned Friday as the Maiden boys basketball coach.

Miller, who spent four seasons as Blue Devils coach, went 19-75 during his tenure, including a 9-15 record and a playoff appearance this season.

“When the season was over, stepping down was something my wife and I talked about,” Miller said. “I wanted to give it a month or two to see where I wanted to go with it, but I didn’t want to leave the school hanging. I didn’t want to drop off in the summer and have them scrambling for a coach.”
