Former Yorktown High School and Syracuse University stars Roy Colsey and Tim Nelson were among eight legends of the sport inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame this past weekend in Hunt Valley, Md.

Colsey 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, Missy Foote and Cindy Timchal.
