OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss softball signee Emily Boyd has been named to the Georgia Region 7 Class AAAA First Team All-State team, and was tabbed the AAAA Pitcher of the Year by GeorgiaPrepCountry.com on Friday.
A pitcher from Cohutta, Ga., Boyd went 28-2 for Northwest Whitfield High School this season, striking out 295 batters in 192.67 innings. Boyd allowed just 82 hits and walked 52 batters while posting an ERA of 0.65. Boyd was also tabbed the Sub Region 7B AAAA Pitcher of the Year and was named to the Georgia Dugout Club senior all-star team.
“We’re really excited for Emily for earning this accomplishment,” Ole Miss head coach Windy Thees said. “She’s had a tremendous year winning the state championship and she’s had an amazing career with Northwest Whitfield. We’re so excited to have her bring those talents here to Oxford.”
A three-time Georgia All-State selection, Boyd is a member of Ole Miss' 2013 signing class. She has been named the All-Region Pitcher of the Year each of the last four seasons, and helped lead Northwest Whitfield to a third-place state finish in 2009 and a fourth-place finish in 2011 before winning the state championship this season.
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.
Her club team, Tennessee Fury ’95, had two top-10 finishes at ASA Nationals, and recorded two top-10 finishes in the Independence Day Tournament in Colorado.
