About Baby J

Julia is one of five rookies on the 2015 Riot roster. A Seattle native returning to the homeland after a five year absence, Julia is a steely thrower with tremendous footwork and explosiveness. Her combination of speed and balance will force defenses to pick their poison: let her huck or let her get yards.

At 23 Julia has already established herself as a force in the game. As a youth player she won WA State High School Championships at the Northwest School and YCC Championships with the DiscNW U-19 Girls team. In 2008 and 2010 she was selected for USA U-19 National team, winning two bronze medals. She attended Carleton College, where she lead Syzygy to a 2nd place finish in 2013. She was selected for the USA U-23 team in 2013, winning gold. In 2015 she coached her alma mater Carleton to yet another Nationals berth, and was again selected for the USA U-23 team (set for action in July in London).
