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 2017, 313 individuals (289 athletes, 15 coaches and 9 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.

Sarah Garrison Moe

Hockey

Inducted: 2017

One of the greatest women’s hockey players to skate at Don Roberts Ice Rink, Sarah Garrison Moe catapulted Gustavus into the national spotlight during the pioneer days of collegiate women’s hockey. She made an immediate impact on the Gustavus women’s hockey program accumulating 43 points on 24 goals and 19 assists in her first season and earning MIAC Player of the Year honors. She finished her Gustie career as a three-time All-Conference selection, a two-time AHCA First Team All-American and two-time MIAC Player of the Year. Moe capped her career in style, totaling 31 goals and 27 assists for 58 points, earning the AHCA Division III Women’s Player of the Year award in 2002. She helped the Gusties win three MIAC titles, post a second place finish at the 2001 AWCHA National Championship, and claim a third place finish at the first-ever NCAA Women’s Hockey Championships in 2002. She still holds program records for most goals in a game (6), most career goals (80), and most career hat tricks (9) and ranks second in career points with 144. As gifted in the classroom as she was on the ice, Moe was a CoSIDA First Team Academic All-America selection as well being honored as one of ten finalists for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award.

After graduating magna cum laude from Gustavus in 2002 with a degree in psychology and criminal justice, Moe earned her master’s degree in counseling and student personnel from Minnesota State University, Mankato. She has served as the head women’s hockey coach at St. Olaf College, an assistant coach at Gustavus, and as the head girls’ hockey coach for the Le Sueur-Saint Peter high school program. She has also played semi-pro hockey with the Brampton Thunder and the Minnesota Whitecaps. Sarah lives in Saint Peter with her husband Scott ’95 (who is also a member of the Gustavus Athletics Hall of Fame) and their four children, Logan, Jack, Libby, and Tessa.
