Brizard on Thompson: "Providing experience at right back, Julie will once again be looked upon to secure the right side of our defense. A solid 1v1 defender, she can also provide needed atteck out of the back."

In 2010 (Sophomore): Although she fought through an ankle injury, Julie still managed to start and play in 13 games as a sophomore, playing a key role on the right side of the Golden Eagle defense.

In 2009 (Freshman): Julie did not see much bench time, as she logged over 1900 minutes at midfield. Tied for third on the team in assists. She had only one shot in 2009, but her durability proved to be a valuable asset for the Golden Eagles all season long.
