Salisbury’s Nelson earns lacrosse honor

HOUSTON — With two outstanding games that helped Rice improve to 5-0, Owls’ sophomore midfielder Davis Nelson earned Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association Division II Under Armour Commanding Performance of the Week.

Rice opened the weekend against Texas A&M-Galveston last Friday and Nelson was critical to a 14-0 victory. Nelson, of Salisbury and a Cannon School graduate, scored three goals and set up four others while also gaining four ground balls and winning 12-of-16 face-offs.

Nelson then backed up that outing with another good one against Southeastern Louisiana last Saturday. For the weekend, Nelson had six goals, six assists, seven ground balls and won 24-of-29 (83 percent) of his face-offs.

“Davis came to Rice last year as a freshman and immediately received respect from his teammates due to his work ethic and his personality,” said Rice coach Mike Ormsby. “As his initial season progressed, he realized his potential on the field as a player and as a team leader.”

The MCLA is a national organization of non-NCAA, men’s college lacrosse programs.

Nelson is the son of Dr. Vaughn Nelson and Dr. Eva Nelson, of Salisbury.
