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.

Erica Stone Scott

Track & Field

Inducted: 2015

The only Gustavus women’s track and field athlete to earn individual All-America honors in a sprint event, Erica Stone Scott graduated as—and remains—the top sprinter in program history. Known by her teammates and coaches as playful and fun-loving off the track, Scott became a fierce competitor when she laced up her spikes. As dangerous during the indoor season as she was during the outdoor season, Scott was a nine-time indoor and seven-time outdoor Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) champion who earned all-conference honors a total of 21 times. She still holds Gustavus indoor records at 55-meters (7.34), 60-meters (7.83), and 200-meters (25.96) and was a member of record-setting relay teams in the 4x200 (1:45.47) and 4x400 (3:57.09). Her outdoor records include the 100-meter (12.07), 200-meter (24.73), 4x100 relay (48.20), 4x400 relay (3:49.59), and the sprint medley relay (4:09.92).
Scott’s mark of 24.73 in the 200-meter dash at the 1999 MIAC Outdoor Championships is still the best ever recorded in the MIAC. She is the only track and field athlete at Gustavus to be named the Outstanding Performer at the MIAC Championships three different times including both the indoor and outdoor championships in 1998 and the outdoor championship in 1999. Scott earned All-America honors in 1998 after finishing seventh in the 100-meter dash and anchoring the fourth-place 4x400 relay at the NCAA Outdoor Championships.
After graduating with a health fitness major in 2000, Scott accepted a position as a campaign manager with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. In 2006, she moved to StayWell, an industry leading health management company. After ten years as a sales executive and senior account manager at StayWell, Scott recently became part of the corporate wellness division of
Life Time Fitness. She is an account director, managing a team of health coaches and providing strategic direction to corporate wellness clients. Erica lives in Bloomington, Minn. with her husband, Eric, and their children, Easton and Elle.
