PARKS ON BOYLE- "Kelly has already established herself among the best players in the MAAC, and I don't believe we've seen what she's capable of achieving. She is an explosive hitter, who will get her money's worth with each and every swing. She covers a ton of ground at shortstop, and plays with as much heart as anyone I've ever coached."
