Julia's Story … I'm from Black Mountain, North Carolina. I came up here in the 8th grade to watch my brother play soccer against LMC and enjoyed the town and that the ski resorts were close. I kept the option open when applying for schools and was accepted. I was orignally recruited to play soccer, which I did play for two years, then was asked to help reboot the lacrosse program. I'm happy that I have joined the team. I love learning a new sport.
