Julie Goodwin achieved All American honors twice during her stellar four-year athletic career at Salem State College. A native to Peabody and resident of Beverly, Julie burst onto the collegiate scene her freshman year when she placed fifth in the long jump and earned All American recognition at the 1991 NCAA Track and Field championships help at Baldwin-Wallace College in Berea, Ohio.
Julie was the second athlete in Salem State College history to win an individual NCAA championship when she leaped 18-7 ¼ to take top honors at North Central College in Naperville, IL. She holds the SSC’s women’s outdoor long jump record of 19-1 ½, which set at the 1994 ECAC championships.
Julie, who captured the 1991 and 1992 New England long jump crowns, was a member of the women’s outdoor 400 meter relay team which set the school record of 50.79 in 1991. A four term All New England and three time ECAC performer, she was a member of the Salem State College 400 meter relay team which won the 1991 New England and Massachusetts State College Athletic Conference (MASCAC) outdoor titles.
Julie played four years of basketball at SSC, serving twice as team captain. She was a three time MASCAC long jump champion and three time NCAA championship qualifier. A MASCAC all academic team selection and SSC Female President’s Cup Award recipient as a senior, Julie’s career nearly ended when she suffered an anterior crusciate ligament tear to her knee early during the basketball season in her junior year. After an intense rehabilitation program, she was back playing less than five weeks later.
