The 33-year-old American grew up at the University of Wisconsin Green Bay, she was even drafted by the NBA’s Phoenix Mercury in 2012. Although her real leap in quality was in Europe. She first fell in the Belgian league at the hands of Namur, but above all she made her name in Italy, first at Le Mura Lucca and then at Broni. It was not until the 2019/2020 season that she arrived in Gernika together with Nikolina Milic. In Maloste she won over the garnet tide with her dedication and effort, achieving averages of 12.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 2 assists in 27 minutes on average. She was Mario López’s all-rounder that season, when she was even named best forward in the Endesa Women’s League. After her time in the provincial town, she returned to the Italian Serie A with Campobasso before joining the French Tarbes last year.
This is how Mario López analyzes the incorporation of Julie Wojta: “Julie, a team player, much loved by our fans with a good character inside and outside the locker room, competitive, with experience, already knows the Spanish league and the club and that is always positive for time for new additions. On offense, she’s in her 3 position, although she can also play false 4, she can post, short shots, finishes well, smart, good passer, always adds. Defensively, she can enter changes defending centers that are not too big, tough, provides rebound, quick and ready in the helps. Very happy with the addition of her. We hope and wish that she has a successful season with us as she was wearing the Lointek Gernika shirt in her previous stage. ”
With the arrival of Julie Wojta, Lointek Gernika Bizkaia now has nine players for the 2022/2023 season: Julie Wojta, Andrijana Cvitkovic, Nogaye Lo, Laura Spreafico, Marta Alberdi, Sandra Ygueravide, Itziar Ariztimuño, Rosó Buch and Gabija Meskonyte.
