Former Hayesville Yellow Jacket athlete and 1997 Hayesville High School graduate Julie Stackhouse is set to be inducted into the North Carolina High School Track and Field and Cross Country Hall of Fame. The induction ceremony will be held Saturday, Feb. 1 in Winston Salem.

While running for Hayesville, Stackhouse totaled 15 track state championships, a record that still holds and one for cross country. Her 15 track titles came in seven different events over a four year period. She also won the 1995 1A cross country state meet. Stackhouse was the 1A state track meet MVP each of her four years of high school as well and helped her team to titles in 1994 and 1996.

She won four state titles in the 100-meter hurdles, two state titles in the 300-meter hurdles and setting a state meet record in 95 that stood for 6 years. Her accomplishments also include three state titles in the high jump, two state titles in the 200 meters, one state title in the 400 meters, two state titles in the 800 and one state title in the 1600 meters which set a 1A record. The only year she didn’t win four titles was her freshman year in 1994 when she won three state championships. Stackhouse was also recognized as one of the NCHSAA’s “100 to Remember” female athletes.

 In college, she earned All-ACC honors twice at Clemson before transferring to Furman where she won Southern Conference titles in the 800 meters, set school records in the heptathlon, 800 meters and 4x800-meter relay. She also helped Furman win the 2000 Southern Conference title in cross country. She was a five-time All-Southern Conference performer and a three-time academic honor roll member.

Fitness and athletics continue to be a big part of life for Stackhouse. She currently lives in Jacksonville, Fl where she owns Stackhouse Fitness. She is very active in the running scene as both a competitor and trainer.

On her social media account, Stackhouse addressed her Hall of Fame inductions, saying, “I’m beyond thrilled and honored to be inducted into the NC Hall of Fame in such impeccable company. Hoping that even one young or young at heart athlete is inspired by my track and field roots. The sport has been so good to me for so many years”
