Former Furman standout Julie Stackhouse ’01 (M ’03) was inducted into the North Carolina High School Track and Field and Cross Country Hall of Fame Saturday, Feb. 1, at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.
A native of Hayesville, North Carolina, Stackhouse won 16 high school state championships before competing for the Paladins from 1999-2002. A five-time All-SoCon selection, she won the 800m outdoor championship in both 2000 and 2002 and set the Furman heptathlon record in 2002. A member of the Furman record-holding outdoor distance medley relay team, Stackhouse helped the Paladins to the 2000 SoCon cross country title. She was named to the SoCon Academic Honor Roll in both 2001 and 2002.
Stackhouse, who resides in Jacksonville, Florida, and remains an active marathon competitor, graduated from Furman in 2001 with a bachelor’s degree in health and exercise science then completed a master’s degree in health and exercise science, also from Furman, in 2003.
