Salem grads have sons on Boston team
BOSTON — A pair of Salem High School graduates who grew up as neighbors have sons playing on the same junior hockey team in Boston.
Lance Miller, class of 1990, and Carrie Juliano, class of 1989, met at ages 4 and 5 as neighbors and friends in Salem.
Mller went on to move to Columbus and attended Ohio State University. He became a pharmacist and married Christine Vrable. Their son Trey Miller played for the Columbus Blue Jackets U18 as a goal keeper.
Juliano moved to Pittsburgh and became a nurse. She married Dom Parente and they have a son named Brandon Parente who played for the Pittsburgh Penguins 18U team as a wing.
In July, both boys were recruited to play for the United States Premier Hockey League’s National Collegiate Development Conference with the South Shore Kings based in Boston.
The 13-team league is tuition-free and seeks to place players with college programs or higher-level junior leagues.
Trey Miller has played six games this season and has a 1-2 record. He has 111 saves and has allowed 3.94 goals per game in 244 minutes.
Brandon Parente has played nine games and has two assists as a right wing.
The boys are grandsons of local residents Ron and Debbie Miller and Rich and Gayle Juliano.
