It was no surprise that the Women's Ice Hockey Team elected Tara Tomimoto as their captain for the 2013-14 season. Tomimoto led the Bulldogs to a historic 2-0 victory against Harvard this past weekend. Yet, it is her off-the-ice performance that is truly spectacular. Tomimoto, a senior economic major in Calhoun College, is this week's Total Mortgage Spotlight Athlete of the Week.
Tara is a three-time ECAC Hockey All-Academic award winner. She also won team's Richard H. Brodhead '68 Award, given to the player who contributed significantly to the success of the team while excelling academically. In her first two seasons as a Bulldog, she appeared in 43 games, scoring her first point in her freshman year against Quinnipiac. As a junior, she led the team in assists and was second on the team in points (2-12-14). This year, Tomimoto and her teammates have impressive wins over Sacred Heart, Rensselaer, Union, Connecticut, Providence, Colgate and Harvard.
In addition to her athletic and academic prowess, she has also been involved in major volunteer work. In 2007, she traveled to Brazil to aid underprivileged children and help build a medical clinic for a village in the Amazon. She also traveled to Mozambique, Africa, to help rebuild a school in 2009. In 2011, she was mentioned in the Calgary Herald for her work on the bone marrow donor drive in honor of former teammate Mandi Schwartz (1988-2011).
Be sure to come out to Ingalls Rink this weekend and support Tara and company as they take on Clarkson on Friday and St. Lawrence on Saturday.
