Tommie Lark, a resident of Amherst, Mass., was
one of the most accomplished Wesleyan track athletes of all time
over his four years.
Attending the NCAA Division III Track and Field Championships each of his four opportunities, he steadily progressed from his freshman to senior year, earning All-America honors in 2011 with an eighth-place finish in the triple jump, and capping his career by finishing fifth in the event as a senior in 2012. Along the way, Tommie broke the school records in both the triple jump and long jump, propelling himself 23-5 in the latter and 49-3 in the former.
Competing indoors as well, Tommie was a two-time All-American in the triple jump as well, placing sixth in 2011 and fifth in 2012. He also owns the Wesleyan record for the indoor triple jump with an effort of 49-1 1/2.
As Wesleyan's Carl Aherns Memorial Award winner during the 2011-12 season, Tommie was recognized as the top contributor to men's athletics at the college during his final year. In addition to his four All-America performances, Tommie was all-New England Division III indoors seven times and outdoors five times. He received all-New England Open honors indoors six times and outdoors four times. He was all-ECAC Division III indoors three times and outdoors once.
He was unparalleled at Wesleyan with regard to All-NESCAC laurels as he was top-three in both the long jump and triple jump each of his four years with a pair of titles, capturing the 2011 and 2012 NESCAC triple-jump crowns.
