Mounties Women's Hockey welcome Julia Lee to program

The Mount Allison Mounties women's hockey program is pleased to announce that Julia Lee has committed for the fall of 2021. Lee, who is from North Vancouver, BC, is currently playing with the Fraser Valley Rush of the British Columbia Major Midget League.

Lee is an assistant captain with the Rush and she is known to be a hard-working defense with high end mobility and a great mind for the game. Lee intends to enrol in the Commerce program at Mount Allison.

“I’m very excited for the opportunity to be attending Mount Allison University next year to pursue my hockey career and education," commented Lee. "I am looking forward to contributing to the team both on and off the ice.”

Mountie Head Coach Lucrèce O'Neal shared her enthusiasm for having Lee join the Mounties by saying "I’m very excited about Julia’s commitment for both our hockey program but also for our community. She will undoubtedly be a great student athlete who takes pride in her studies and her overall leadership skills will be something we will benefit from." O'Neal finished by saying "she will be a great asset to our program in every area."
