Coach Gallimore on Boyd
"We feel extremely fortunate to get a player like Molly late in the recruiting game. Molly was injured last year so she fell off the radar during her rehabilitation. Molly is now getting back to playing and we suspect she will be in very good form by the time preseason comes around in August. She is a strong defender and will add depth to a back line that will see four starters graduate in a two year period."
