“I’m excited to start my life at Purdue but a part of me will always love and hold on to Penn Basketball and Penn Track and Cross Country,” Economou said.

Economou won the MVP award for the Penn Girls Basketball team for being a beast in the paint, a great leader and teammate, and dominating in scoring. This year Julia got her career high of 30 points in her senior season. 

Economou talks about how she felt so welcomed into the Penn Girls Basketball family from day one.

“When I moved here my freshman year I was terrified but little did I know it was going to be this good of a program and experience. The girls on this team and coaches made it easier and I’ve found my family in PGBB,” Economou said.

Although Economou is leaving to continue her career in running, she will forever leave behind a legacy in basketball at Penn.
