All-everything Saint Vincent lacrosse star Maggie Nelson made headlines just about every week this season.

Now the record-breaking senior midfielder has been thrust into the national spotlight with an appearance in Sports Illustrated.

Every mention of Nelson at SVC seems to end with an exclamation point.

Nelson, who broke six NCAA Division III records this year, is featured in the May 21 issue of Sports Illustrated under, “Faces in the Crowd.”

“It's honestly incredible, I'm so honored,” Nelson said. “It doesn't get much better than this. I couldn't have done it without my teammates.”

Nelson recently picked up Ohio River Lacrosse Conference and Eastern College Athletic Conference offensive player of the year honors, and made the Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches Association and the College Sports Information Directors of America team.

Nelson broke NCAA marks for goals in a season (141), points in a season (178), points in a game (19), career goals (364), goals per game (8.81), and points per game (11.12).

The last athlete from Saint Vincent to make “Faces in the Crowd” was Tony Washam, the men's basketball program's all-time leading scorer, in 2004.
