Mike Stomski '81 was a member of the Worcester State track program from 1979-81. After his graduation, Stomski became a volunteer assistant coach for the Lancer track and field team beginning in 1981 and going through the 1988 season.
Stomski coached athletes who set or reset over 38 school records in indoor and outdoor track despite a limited practice facility for throwing events. He coached a pair of NCAA Indoor Track All-Americans and 4 NCAA Division III Outdoor champions. He also mentored numerous All-New England and ECAC honorees as well as countless qualifiers.
Among the Worcester State notables that Coach Stomski taught were Frank Poulin, Patrick Carmody, Jon Cotter, Paul Gaffney, Mike Balzarini, Chrissy (Mitchell) Gaffney and Francine Lapierre; none of whom had experience in throwing events prior to attending Worcester State College.
It is with great pride that we induct former Worcester State coach and athlete in the Athletic Hall of Fame.
