UW-Green Bay's Wojta prepares for WNBA draft


MADISON (WKOW) -- The WNBA draft begins Monday afternoon, and UW-Green Bay standout Julie Wojta will be waiting to hear her name called in Bristol, Connecticut.

Wojta is one of just 15 players invited to attend the draft at ESPN's headquarters.

The journey from lightly-recruited prospect to possible first-round draft pick is a bit of a shock, even to Wojta herself.

"Even the beginning of last year, it was not in my mind as a possibility. I just planned to play overseas and go from there, so this is all pretty exciting and a neat experience," said Wojta.

Wojta is a native of Francis Creek, Wis. You can watch live coverage of the WNBA draft on ESPN2, beginning at 1 p.m. CST on Monday.
