OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss softball team received a national letter of intent Friday from Cohutta, Ga., pitcher Emily Boyd, head coach Windy Thees announced Friday. Boyd joins Emily Gaitan, who committed Thursday, as members of the Rebels’ 2013 class.

Boyd helped lead her high school, Northwest Whitfield, to a third-place state finish in 2009 and a fourth-place finish in 2011 before winning the state championship in 2012.
“Emily Boyd has been one of the top pitchers in the Southeast for a few years now and we are very excited she will be bringing her skills to Ole Miss,” Thees said. “Emily is a power pitcher who has done incredibly well at every level she has pitched and we think she will do great things here in the SEC.”
Boyd was named to the Chattanooga Times and Dalton Daily Citizen All-Area teams from 2009-11, was the Chattanooga Times Player of the Year in 2009 and team MVP and pitcher of the year from 2009-11. Boyd has recorded 1,015 strikeouts over her career, has an ERA of .52 and has accumulated 94 wins. She made straight A’s in 2009, and was on the A-B honor roll in 2010 and 2011.
