Our star senior, Julia Hellenkamp announced her commitment to UNC Wilmington to play women’s soccer. After many spectacular years for her club team, Julia is headed off to the next level and is sure to have great success!
What are some goals you want to accomplish at UNC Wilmington?
I want to be one of the best soccer players after playing at UNCW. I am motivated to be the best and beyond excited to be able to play at this amazing college.
Could you share some details about the recruitment process?
I initially committed to Clemson, but with the COVID-19 pandemic a lot ended up changing due to all their seniors getting an extra year of eligibility causing us incoming freshman’s to not be able to get playing time our first year. I wanted to be able to go into a college and make a difference and compete for a position so I decided to switch to UNCW!
What do you plan to study at UNC Wilmington?
I plan to study to be an athletic trainer.
What other schools were you considering before you chose UNC Wilmington?
Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, NC State, Wake Forest, UNCC, and Virginia Tech.
What will you miss the most about club sports and your team?
I will miss my club team more than anything, we were together every single weekend every single weekday training non-stop. I’m so excited to see all of them do big things playing D1 as well!!!
