Gomolinski Named to Academic All-District Team

Jake Gomolinski has been named to the 2008 ESPN The Magazine Academic All-District II College Division men's track & field/cross country team, announced on Thursday.

Gomolinski was named to the first team and advances to the national ballot for Academic All-America honors.

A senior sprinter for the Franklin & Marshall's men's track & field team, he turned in outstanding performances during the 2007-08 season. Gomolinski won two individual medals and anchored the record-setting 4x100 relay team at the Centennial Conference (CC) Outdoor Championships to earn Most Outstanding Track Performer of the meet. He captured the 100m and 200m, while helping the relay team break the conference record by three hundredths of a second for the gold medal.

Academically, Gomolinski was a three-time CC Academic Honor Roll selection and Tom Floyd Track award winner. He was president of the Black Pyramid Senior Honor Society and founding member of the John Marshall Pre-Law Honor Society, while being a member of the Delphic Society and the John Marshall Leadership Institute. Gomolinski also served as the Student-Athletic Advisory Committee President from 2006-07.
