For their outstanding effort in the classroom and on the field, the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) selected senior attacker Jill Toomey and junior midfielder Lisa Hagan to its national Academic Honor Roll.
Members selected to the IWLCA national Academic Honor Roll must have junior or senior standing in college and have completed at least one academic year at the institution. A school can nominate an unlimited number of student-athletes who have grade point averages of 3.500 or above, but only two student-athletes with GPAs from 3.200 to 3.490.
A communication major with a 3.200 GPA, Toomey was named a 2001-02 Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Scholar-Athlete, and she earned a selection to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll for five straight semesters. A 2002 and 2003 team co-captain and three-time first-team All-CAA candidate, she received IWLCA All-American and All-Region honors for the second consecutive season, becoming the fifth Patriot ever selected a national All-American and the first not named to the third team. She is the only Mason athlete to earn All-American honors twice. Last season, Toomey led the Patriots in goals scored (59), points (72), and draw controls (33).
Hagan, who is earning a bachelor’s degree in biology at Mason and carries a 3.670 GPA, finished third on the team in points (33), ranked second in assists (15), and claimed fourth in goals scored (18). A three-time second-team All-CAA selection, she is one of the most versatile players on the team, with the ability to play well both offensively and defensively. Her career mark of 61 assists is tops in the record books. In the classroom, Hagan boasts one of the highest GPAs of any player on the roster. She has made the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll every semester since her freshman campaign, and she was named a 2001-02 CAA Scholar-Athlete and 2002 Verizon Academic All-District-III honoree.
