ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) In a sentence, Elizabethtown senior, Erin Boley can do it all. At 6'2", Boley is a post presence, but she can also step out and hurt the opposing defense from the perimeter. "She can score the ball in a multitude of ways. With her back to the bucket, off the bounce, her mid range game is excellent, and she's shooting over 50% for us this year from three," said Elizabethtown head coach, Tim Mudd.
While there are plenty of games left in the season, Boley is already having a story book senior year. She's already committed to Notre Dame. Her Elizabethtown team is #1 in the state, and earlier this month, Boley became just the third female ever from the state of Kentucky to be named to McDonald's All American game. It really is a dream come true. It's something I've dreamed of since I was a little girl. It's definitely really exciting," said Boley. One of her biggest fans, happens to be her teammate, and best friend, Rachel Warden. Warden she wasn't surprised one bit to see her best friend selected to the prestigious game. I knew that she was going to be up there. She's so good, they couldn't pass her up. I expected it, because I knew how good she is," said Warden.
With all of the excitement going on in her life, Boley says she's taking it all in, and having a blast in her senior year of high school. "It's so much fun. I love the game. I love the team, and it's been a great experience so far," said Boley. Boley is also the leading candidate to win Miss Basketball in the state of Kentucky, but her number one goal this year in her senior season is bringing home a state championship. The Lady Panthers haven't won state since '98....despite being close several times. "As a team, that is definitely our goal is to win a state championship. We make sure that that's said, and for all the girls on the team," commented Boley.
