Oklahoma high school homecoming queen dies after falling ill Published: February 22, 2012

VIAN (AP) — Vian High School says its homecoming queen has died after suddenly falling ill with a suspected case of the flu.

Principal David Vinson says Whitney Miller died unexpectedly on Friday. He says she became ill last week and was rushed to the hospital Friday morning, where she was diagnosed with pneumonia.

Vinson says she died later that day.

Miller also played on the basketball team. Her teammates won their district championship a day after Miller's death by beating Haskell 63-52. The team returns to action Thursday in a regional game against Morris.
