Athletic Hall of Fame

The Gustavus Adolphus College Hall of Fame was established in 1978 at which time 19 "Charter Members" were inducted either as coaches or as athletes. As of the fall of 2019, 327 individuals (305 athletes, 15 coaches and 10 benefactors) have been elected to the Hall of Fame.

The beautiful Hall of Fame room on the second floor of the Lund Center was originally partially endowed by the families of both Dwight Holcombe's (the only father/son combination holding membership in the Hall). The hardwood plaque upon which the individual plates are permanently displayed was donated by the family of former football coach and Hall of Fame member Jocko Nelson, who passed away in 1978.

One of the most decorated players in the history of the women's tennis program, Tracy Erickson McMorrow was a three-time All-American who also won the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) Division III National Doubles Championship with partner Lisa Broughten in the fall of 1994 and placed second in the doubles tournament at the NCAA Division III Championships with partner Alice Han in the spring of 1995. The Virginia, Minn. native was a key contributor on teams that won four Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference titles (with a perfect 44-0 league record) and posted three top-four finishes at the NCAA Championships including a second place finish in 1993. Individually, McMorrow was a seven-time MIAC champion including three singles titles and four doubles titles. She completed her Gustavus career with an all-time record of 68-35 in singles and 76-25 in doubles. An especially gifted doubles player, McMorrow was the first Gustavus women's tennis player to qualify for the NCAA Doubles Championship three times, which she accomplished with three different partners. She earned the #1 seed in 1993 with Heidi Carlson and in 1994 with Kendall Larson. In 1995, she was the #2 seed with Han.

After graduating in 1995 with a major in economics, McMorrow accepted a position as an account administrator with Piper Jaffray in the Twin Cities where she stayed until moving to Ingenix in 1998 as the Director of Business Intelligence Operations. After seven years at Ingenix, McMorrow accepted the position of Director of Manufacturing Information Systems at Boston Scientific in 2005 where she has worked for the past six years. She received her master's in business administration from the University of St. Thomas in 2008. Tracy and her husband John '95, live in Farmington, Minn. with their daughter Tori and son, Brendan.
