The Nathan Hale High School graduate, who played at Crossfire under Rich Reese, played in every match for the Golden Bears, starting all but one of them. She was named to the All Pac-12 Freshman Team.
The honors for Emily went beyond her league. She was also named Top Drawer Soccer All Freshman Team #2 Keeper. Further, Soccer American put her on their Freshman First Team.
In December Boyd was invited to the US Women’s Youth National Team Goalkeeping Camp.
“To be a starting keeper as a freshman in the Pac-12, you gain experience and maturity very quickly. You become battle-tested week in and week out,” Golden Bear goalkeeper coach Cori Alexander told the school athletic website. “Emily came in with Youth National Team experience on her resume, but has proven over the course of this fall her ability to be a gamechanger and we are very excited for this new opportunity for her to continue to grow at the national team level.”
