Former Paseo Aquatics Standout Julia Wolf Helps Lead Indiana Hoosiers to Big Ten Conference Swimming Title
Former Valencia High School and Paseo Aquatics standout, Julia Wolf, left California for the state of Indiana with a few goals in mind: most importantly, helping the Indiana Hoosiers win the Big Ten Conference Championship and a national team title.
Wolf is halfway to realizing that dream, as Indiana toppled conference foe and No. 2 nationally ranked Michigan to claim the Hoosiers first Big Ten Conference Championship since 2011. Wolf, a freshman, did her part by finishing fifth overall in the 50 Freestyle, 10th in the 100 freestyle and led off the 200 freestyle relay that won a Bronze Medal and set a new Indiana University team record.
Wolf began her swim career with Paseo Aquatics, coached by Head Coach and team co-owner, Chris Dahowski. She was also a High School All-American for three years at Valencia High School, before leaving to spend her senior year of high school in Bloomington, Ind., to get a jump-start on her college training. Wolf set several school and area records, and is the current Foothill League record-holder in the 50 Freestyle.
Wolf and the Hoosiers next move on to the NCAA Division I Women’s Championships, which run March 20-23 in Austin, Texas.
