The US Lacrosse Hall of Fame Class of 2012 will include a couple of players who rose to stardom at Yorktown High School and Syracuse University.
As we told you late last night on Twitter, Ridgefield (Conn.) High School varsity coach Roy Colsey informed his team that he had been elected to the Hall of Fame after its 12-11 upset win over top-seeded Darien last night in the FCIAC semifinals.
Colsey, of course, was a two-time All-America midfielder at YHS and a four-time All-American at Syracuse University, before starring in both the MLL and NLL.
Joining Colsey is Tim Nelson, who is No. 2 on Yorktown’s career scoring list with 352 points, one behind his brother Tom Nelson. The Nelsons are tied for the top spot in career assists with 255.
Nelson still holds SU records for most assists in a game (nine), season (67 in 1984) and career (187). He is fifth on the Orange’s all-time scoring list with 271 points (84 goals, 187 assists). He did all that after transferring to ‘Cuse following one season at North Carolina State.
This year’s class also includes Jen Adams, Brian Dougherty, Kelly Amonte Hiller, Jesse Hubbard and Cindy Timchal.
The Class of 2012 includes seven, six of whom are among the game’s all-time greats. Timchal is being honored as a coach.
Induction ceremonies will be Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Grand Lodge in Hunt Valley, Md.
