South Jefferson girls’ lacrosse player Julia Garvin made it official on Thursday, singing a letter of intent to continue her lacrosse career at Division II Wingate.

The senior attack says Wingate was a perfect fit for her both on and off the lacrosse field.

“Well, Wingate is great,” she said. “I love the campus, the coaches are just amazing. They’re super nice. they’re super supportive. I talked with some of the girls on the team and they just love it there. They love the girls, they love the whole atmosphere and it’s warmer down there – 20 minutes away from Charlotte, so that’s nice.”

As a junior for the Lady Spartans, Garvin scored 46 goals and added 52 assists, helping the Lady Spartans advance to the Section III Class D semifinals and a 16-2 overall record.

Garvin is a member of the National Honor Society and is a three-sport standout, also participating in swimming and indoor track.

Lady Spartans coach Jen Williams says Wingate is getting a well-rounded athlete.

“They’re getting an incredibly smart and talented low, lefty attacker who will do anything that is needed to be done for your team,” the coach said. “She has the ability to score, feed, and ride as well as re-defend and understands the game plan as well as anybody on the field.”
