Scholar Athlete: Julie Fleming

Mount St. Mary’s senior Julie Fleming is the latest News 4 Scholar Athlete.

The three-sport star is fresh off leading the basketball team to a state championship, leading the way with 27 points in the title game.

“Julie is a determined athlete,” said assistant athletic director Marissa Dauria. “She is one of the most competitive athletes that we have in school. She excels in all three sports she plays in… volleyball, basketball, and softball.”

In the classroom, Julie carries a 94.7 average.

“Her work in class is always exceptional. Her participation in class is always well beyond what we are looking for. Her conversations, her questions as a student, just a model for others,” said government teacher Danielle Heim.

Julie says her positive attitude is one reason behind her success.

“Just to try hard in everything, the good times and the bad, and to keep my faith when things are not going good,” said Fleming.
