SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Attackman Tom Palasek (Rocky Point, N.Y.) has joined the Syracuse men's lacrosse team, Orange head coach John Desko announced Thursday. Palasek, a junior, transferred to Syracuse from Johns Hopkins and has two years of eligibility remaining.

Palasek played in 14 games with five starts for Hopkins last season. He tallied 20 points (13g, 7a) on the year, including a career-best three points (2g, 1a) in a 10-7 loss to the Orange at Homewood Field.
