June 24, 2011

WASHINGTON - Four-time All-American Renee Tomlin (Ocean City, N.J./Ocean City), who just finished her fifth year with the Hoyas, received the 2010-11 BIG EAST Scholar-Athlete Excellence Award for a women's outdoor track & field athlete. The honor comes just one day after Tomlin was named to the Capital One Academic All-America Third Team for Women's Track & Field by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).

The Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Awards are given to one student-athlete in each BIG EAST sport based on academic credentials, athletic accolades or performances and volunteer service to the community. Student-athletes who have attained junior academic standing and a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.00 are eligible. The winners are chosen by the BIG EAST Faculty Athletics Representative Council.

Tomlin, who just completed her fifth year at Georgetown studying linguistics following her undergraduate studies in French, carries a 3.84 GPA while also boasting two BIG EAST individual titles from this outdoor season totaling seven for her career. Tomlin ran the leadoff 1,200-meter leg of the winning Penn Relays distance medley relay squad this year and was part of two second-place teams at the 2011 Penn Relays (4x800, 4x1,500). She holds the school record in the women's outdoor 4x1,500-meter relay (17:11.80) and the women's outdoor distance medley relay (10:51.49) and is a four-time BIG EAST Academic All-Star.

At the 2011 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships, Tomlin earned her fourth All-America honor as she finished fourth in the women's 1,500-meter run timing in at 4:16.17. She was named a first team All-American for her efforts.
