LOUISVILLE, Ky. - Each week, UofLsports.com will unveil one member from the University of Louisville women's lacrosse's 2012-13 recruiting class. This week, New York native Courtney Boyd is in the spotlight.

"Courtney is a determined and aggressive defender with a great balance of speed and agility," head coach Kellie Young said. "I was very impressed in the recruiting process with how thoughtful Courtney was in her decision process. I know she has chosen Louisville for all the right reasons and I can't wait until she arrives on campus."

Hailing from Bayville, N.Y., Boyd was a four-year letterwinner on the Locust Valley High lacrosse team. Each season from 2009-11, she earned all-conference honors, and in 2012, Boyd was named all-county honorable mention while being named her team's most valuable player. An academic All-American, Boyd also was tabbed a Nassau County Scholar-Athlete and a 2011 Wendy's Heisman High School winner for her achievements in the classroom, on the field and in the community.

Outside of high school lacrosse, Boyd competed with the Long Island Metro National Tournament Girl's Team in 2009 and 2011.

Additionally, Boyd lettered in basketball, tennis, soccer and winter track. She helped her varsity basketball team capture the county title in the 2009-10 season.

Boyd was quite involved academically as well. In addition to serving as vice president for the class of 2012, she was a member of the National Spanish Honor Society. Her achievements in the classroom earned her academic All-America honors.

One of two children, her brother, Eamonn, currently plays for the Nassau Community College baseball team.
