In high school, Boyce was a three-sport athlete, receiving
all-conference recognition in volleyball, basketball and track.
She earned varsity letters in each of her sports all four years
and has led as captain in each.
Boyce led her volleyball team
in kills and blocks throughout her junior and senior years as
well as in digs in her senior season. Her career kills (560) and
blocks (271) helped her team achieve winning seasons all four
years, with a school record of 25-7 her junior year. Katie was
chosen for multiple all-tournament teams, including Alexis
United's top "Go-getter" award. Her defense is as strong as her
offense, as she has been in the top three for the Lady Ducks in
digs and serves as well.
As a center on the basketball team, Boyce also contributed to
winning seasons for the Lady Ducks. She led the team in blocked
shots as well as rebounds, with 259 as a senior, while averaging
9.5 points per game and shooting 70 percent from the free-throw
line. During her senior season, Boyce made all-tournament teams
in the Macomb tournament, Lady Tiger Classic and Camp Point
Shootout. She was recently honored as a Westown Ford All-Star in
Jacksonville and as a Canton Kiwanis All-Star.
Boyce qualified for the IHSA state track meet last year in
the triple jump and placed in the top five at the Illinois Top
Times track meet this spring. She is Havana High School's
nominee for the IHSA 2014 All-State Academic Team and 2014
Katie says she is "looking forward to playing two of her
favorite sports for the Red Lions." She loves to quote
Colossians 3:23: "In whatever you do, work at it with all your
heart as working for the Lord, not for man."
Academically, Katie is maintaining a 4.0 GPA and received
honors as an Illinois State Scholar, Maroon Scholar and National
Honor Society president.
She will major in business administration and minor in
intercultural studies at Lincoln Christian University, with
plans to get her doctorate in physical therapy.
