Former soccer player named honorary All-America by NSCAA

The recipient of the 2008 NSCAA Honorary All-America award is out of this world. Literally.


Sandra Magnus, Phys’86, MS EE’90, a NASA astronaut who recently spent four months as a flight engineer aboard the International Space Station, was a former standout for the Missouri S&T women’s soccer team.
Magnus, who is concluding her second space mission aboard the ISS, played for the Lady Miners in the 1980s and was inducted into the Miner Athletic Hall of Fame in 2003. During her soccer-playing career, she was a defender for a team that posted a 19-13 record during the 1983 and 1984 seasons, allowing an average of just one goal per contest.
Magnus is the third astronaut to receive the NSCAA’s Honorary All-America award. The award is presented to those who have brought particular distinction to soccer through their efforts within and beyond the boundaries of the sport.
