Cody High School standout Ally Boysen was chosen as the 2022-23 Gatorade Wyoming Girls Soccer Player of the Year on Friday.

In its 38th year of honoring the best high school athletes in the nation, The Gatorade Company announced this year’s winner.

Boysen is the second winner from Cody High School. She joins Crystal Umphlett, who received this same honor in 2005-06 and 2006-07.

Boysen helped the Fillies win back-to-back Class 3A state championships the last two seasons with a perfect 34-0 record. The 5-11 senior scored 48 goals and had 12 assists during the 2023 season. She averaged nearly three goals per match (2.82) her senior season and finished with 108 points for the season. Boysen was a Class 3A all-state selection for the third straight year.

She has signed a National Letter of Intent to play soccer on scholarship at the University of Wyoming this fall. Boysen has already reported to Laramie for summer workouts.

In the classroom, Boysen maintained a 3.9 GPA. She was a member of the National Honor Society. Boysen volunteered locally as the Vice President of Cody CAN (Changing Attitudes Now), a non-profit organization dedicated to keeping students away from drugs and alcohol. She also has donated her time as a youth basketball coach for the past four years.

Mountain View head coach Jessica Moretti provided some high praise for Boysen in the release from The Gatorade Company.

“She has the ability to control the midfield, connect through the thirds, and attack and score from the midfield as well. Ally is skillful as well as a very technical player. She’s the one player that we played against in the state that can score when her team really needs a goal. It almost seems as if it’s on demand.”

This award recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field. It distinguishes Boysen as Wyoming’s best high school girls' soccer player. She is now a finalist for the prestigious Gatorade National Girls Soccer Player of the Year award to be announced later this month.

Boysen joins recent Gatorade Wyoming Girls Soccer Players of the Year Cena Carlson (2021-22) from Thunder Basin High School, Emily Taucher (2020-21) from Rock Springs High School, and Alyssa Bedard (2019-20) of Rock Springs High School, among the state’s list of former award winners.

Being a Gatorade Player of the Year means paying it forward for the next generation. Through Gatorade’s Play it Forward initiative, Boysen receives a grant to give to one of Gatorade’s social impact partners, supporting Gatorade’s ambition to fuel the future of sport. To date, Gatorade Player of the Year winners’ grants has totaled more than $3.5 million across more than 1,300 organizations.
