George Mason women’s lacrosse players Jill Toomey and Lisa Hagan each earned postseason honors last week. Toomey was selected a U.S. Lacrosse/Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association third team all-American, while Hagan was named to the Verizon Academic all-District III women’s at-large second-team.
Toomey lit up the GMU record books in 2002. The junior attacker led the Patriots in goals scored (59) and points (72), setting single-season records in both categories. She started all 18 games, scoring multiple goals in 14 contests and recording 7 goals in a game three times. Her 9 points against American on April 24 is a school single-game record as well. A team co-captain, Toomey also broke and currently holds the school record with 129 career goals and 172 career points.
Hagan was one of 15 players named to the District III Verizon Academic all-America second team for the University Division in the women’s spring at-large category. The voting, conducted by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), includes all CoSIDA members at Division I schools in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Hagan keyed the Patriots’ record-setting offense in 2002. She concluded the year ranked first on the team with 28 assists, breaking the school single-season record, and finished second in goals scored (22) and points (50).
The Patriots finished the season with a 9-9 overall record and finished 4-4 in the CAA. The nine wins is a school single-season record.
