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.
