A SELF-PROFESSED ‘LATE BLOOMER,’ Harvard attacker Julia Glynn has surpassed the field. Though born in the United States, her family moved to London at the age of 2 for her father’s job. There, she enjoyed ballet and horseback riding.
But when she returned to lacrosse-minded Manhasset, N.Y., in the third grade, a whole new world was opened, and it didn’t take long for her to latch on.
A three-time U.S. Lacrosse All-American at Manhasset High School, her abilities to lead and adapt have allowed her to excel to the point where now, as a senior in college, she stands as the most proficient goal scorer in Division 1, leading the nation with a 4.57 goals-per-game average heading into her final game for the Crimson, who at 5-9 (1-5 Ivy League) will not qualify for a postseason tournament.
