That the catcher’s position is a rock for a softball team perfectly describes Julia Mayernik of Jersey Outlaws Gold-DB.
A rock with a solid frame. A rock with a powerful throwing arm. A rock with a booming bat.
The three-year starting catcher and rising senior at Northern Burlington High also is steady as a rock, and that drew the interest of The College of New Jersey softball program, which Mayernik has verbally committed to play for beginning in the fall of 2020.
Mayernik and TCNJ are synonymous, of course, as Julia’s older sister Megan is a three-year starter heading into her senior season with the Lions in the New Jersey Athletic Conference. They’ve won two straight regular-season conference titles and played in the last two NCAA Division III tournaments.
Also an excellent student, Julia is a lock-down defender as a third baseman as well as behind the plate. She earned BCSL All-Liberty Division first-team honors as a junior and played for the Burlington County squad in the recent Carpenter Cup.
Rock on, Jules.
