It may take the entire fall, in fact, to get all the way back, but her drive to overcome such a setback has been remarkable, with her finish at the UNH meet putting an exclamation point on it.
“It’s quite a story the way she’s come back,” said Haverhill cross country and track coach Mike Maguire. “I couldn’t be prouder of her.”
The Solimine trifecta
Julie isn’t the only Solimine to once again be enjoying the fall. Younger sister Jackie has gotten off to a super start as a freshman at UMass Lowell. She came in first at the Keene State College Alumni Invitational and then came in 10th overall and first for UMass Lowell at the America East Pre-Conference meet.
Meanwhile, youngest sister Jenna is a promising freshman for the Hillies.
