Gallaudet star soared on both the basketball and volleyball courts

2018 Rhonda Jo Miller
Gallaudet retired Ronda Jo (Miller) Donatucci’s basketball jersey in 2014 and plans to retire her volleyball jersey in October.

With the era of specialization underway, making participation in multiple college sports a challenge, Ronda Jo Miller didn’t just play two sports. She excelled in them.

Miller finished her playing career at Gallaudet as the all-time Division III leader in career rebounds (1,545) and third in career points (2,656) in basketball, as well as the all-time leader in any division in career kills in volleyball (3,579). Combined, her name appears in the NCAA volleyball and basketball record books more than 30 times for her exploits from 1996 to 2000 at Gallaudet, the only university in the world for deaf and hard-of-hearing students.
