Tomick's career one for books with Randolph-Macon 0) lacrosse

John Carroll graduate Paul Tomick recently completed his four-year lacrosse career at Randolph-Macon, but not without leaving his mark in the record books.

The attackman finished as the school's all-time point scorer (267) and all-time assist leader (170).

Tomick led Division III Randolph-Macon (9-4) in scoring this year with 29 goals and a record 48 assists. He also was selected twice as the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's Men's Lacrosse Player of the Week.

"I didn't have to wait until my junior or senior year to get a lot of playing time, and playing early forced me to get better," Tomick said.

Tomick also has exceled in the classroom. He has a 3.26 grade-point average in his political science major and has won the George P. Compton Award, which recognizes academic and athletic achievement.

"At a Division III school, lacrosse doesn't take up a lot of time, so I was able to enjoy all aspects of college life," Tomick said.
