2016 ND commit ERIN BOLEY : ” Get to Know Me ” – Monthly Diary

November 5th, 2015

ERIN BOLEY is a class of 2016 6’2″ Forward  from Elizabethtown , KY ( Elizabethtown H.S. ) . She played AAU with Kentucky Premier. The  University of Notre Dame pledge is considered the #5 ranked player in the 2016 class by espnW, and seemingly the epitome of an All – American.  Erin is back to back  Kentucky Gatorade player of the year after averaging 20.2 points, 9.5 rebounds and 2.1 steals and leading Elizabethtown to the state title game as a Sophomore and then following that up averaging 21 points, 11 rebounds, 4 steals, 3 assists as a Junior.  She has been playing varsity ball since the Seventh grade, became a starter a year later and last season led Elizabethtown to a 32-5 record. She was a member of USA basketball’s 3 vs 3 team that traveled to Hungary to compete against players from other countries.

“I’ve been a head coach for 21 years, and I’ve never seen a player with her work ethic,” Elizabethtown coach Tim Mudd said. “She’s an excellent practice player. But when our team practice is over, that’s when she really goes to work on her individual skills.

“You either have that desire to work hard or you don’t. And she certainly has it.”

Away from the court, Erin is is just as Impressive, if not more so. She is a very outgoing,  Intelligent,  high character, civic minded, well spoken and very sincere young lady. She has a 4.0 GPA and was Vice President of her class. She teaches Art in an after school program for kids in her community. The Fighting Irish are not only getting a Versatile , potential Impact player on the court…they are getting a Special young lady who should prove to be a wonderful ambassador for the University of Notre Dame and Women’s Basketball.

Hi everyone!

It’s that time of year again, basketball season is just right around the corner. We started official practice on October 15th and we have our first scrimmage on November 14. I love this time of year because it is so crucial to a team’s success during the season. This is when the foundations are laid for trust and teamwork, and the pieces of the puzzle start to come together. My high school team will be very different from last year. We lost 3 starters who all went on to play Division 1 basketball, so we will look and play much differently. I’m really excited about the group of girls we have this year! I think we will surprise a lot of people with how well we can play together. We have great chemistry and several young, talented players that will contribute a lot! We have another scrimmage on November 21st before our first game on December 4th.

I took my official visit to Notre Dame on October 16-18. It was a great visit! My future classmate, Jackie Young, was also there. We were able to watch 2 practices as well as tailgate and go to the ND vs. USC football game. The atmosphere on campus during a football weekend is always an amazing experience! It was a great feeling being able to take my official after having already committed. I was able to enjoy the weekend without having to worry about making my college decision!

 

In what little time I have between basketball and school, I usually spend it hanging out with friends and watching football. I enjoy watching college football (mostly ND) and my family is big  Pittsburgh Steelers fans. My youngest brother, Cutter, also plays in a youth football league that I love to watch! Something exciting that I have coming up is signing day. I plan on signing with Notre Dame on November 11th at my high school. My teammate, Rachel Warden, is also signing that day with the University of Tampa. I can’t wait to share that experience with her as well as my friends and family!

Until next time…
