She doesn’t play second fiddle. She takes a backseat to no one.
Think of Mia Julian as a 1B to Lauren Wadas’ 1A. Together, Julian and Wadas created a lethal scoring and leadership combination for the Palmyra field hockey team.
Julian enjoyed an absolutely marvelous senior campaign, helping Palmyra to reach Saturday’s PIAA Class AA championship game at Whitehall High School’s Zephyr Sports Complex, where the Cougars fell to Wyoming Valey West 2-1. For Julian, it was her third trip to the state final, during her four-year career.
Along the way, Julian netted a handful of critical goals for the Cougars. On Tuesday at Milton Hershey School’s Henry Hershey Field, Julian notched a pair of tallies, including the game-winner, as the Cougars trounced Twin Valley 4-0 in a PIAA Class AA semifinal tilt.
During the year, Julian and Palmyra compiled a 22-4 overall mark and the Cougars captured the District Three Class AA championship. Julian plans to continue her academic and field hockey pursuits at James Madison University.
