Boswell started her sophomore cross country season finishing second at the Gamecock Invitational. After an up and down cross country season, where she was as high as the No. 2 runner and as low as the No. 6 runner, she came to track season ready to make big improvements. During indoors she dropped her 3K time to 10:17. Then early in the outdoor season she dropped her 5K time nearly 20 seconds to a PR of 17:33. Boswell clocked her first 10K in 36:53 at the North Florida Invitational. She hopes with more hard work even more PRs will be in store for her throughout the year.
During her freshmen season of cross country, Boswell was the team's seventh runner, but it was during the track season that she really blossomed. Indoors Boswell dropped her 3K PR to 10:35. Outdoors is where she really shined, as she lowered her 5K PR from 19:20 down to 17:49. With her huge improvements, coach Rosenthal expects her to be a top racer for the Gamecocks and to set a great example for the incoming class, what can be accomplished with hard work.
Boswell earned four varsity letters in cross country and three in track and field at Canal Winchester High School. She also earned a varsity letter in track from Vicenza American High School in Italy, where she spent her senior spring semester. She helped Canal win three league championships and qualify for the Ohio State Cross Country Meet three years in a row. She is a two-time state qualifier herself in cross country and has made All-Ohio honors twice. Her teammates voted her Most Valuable Player in 2006 and 2008.
In track, Boswell was part of her school's record holding 4x800-meter relay team. She helped her team win two league titles. She finished her high school running career as the 3000-meter and 1500-meter Department of Defense Dependents Schools European Track and Field Champion.
Her parents are Robert and Julie Boswell. She has two brothers, Jack, a recent graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, and Joe, currently a cadet at VMI.
