Julie LaFramboise – assistant athletic director and head varsity girls’ lacrosse coach – will be inducted into the Swarthmore College Hall of Fame in October, it was announced last week.
Julie, now in her third year at HI, practically rewrote the Division III lacrosse record books during her three years with the Garnet, achieving records that place her among the best in school history.
“I am thrilled to be recognized for having done something that I loved and still love,” Julie said. “It is an honor to be a part of this amazing class of athletes.”
Julie will be one of six inducted in the college’s annual Garnet Homecoming and Family Weekend celebration slated October 4th.
During her three-year career at Swarthmore, she scored a program and conference record 273 goals – averaging 5.91 per game, which remains the highest career scoring average in DIII women’s lacrosse history. As a junior, she scored 107 goals, breaking the national, conference and school single-season record. Many of her scoring marks still stand, including career points and single season points per game.
She was named All-American twice (1994 and 1995) and earned All-Region honors all three of her years (1993, 1994, 1995).
While at HI, she led the Lady Bears to an Elite 8 finish in 2012 and looks to keep her troops among the best in Georgia when the 2014 season kicks off next spring.
