COLLEGE ATHLETICS: Scott amongst inductees as AC announces Hall of Fame class

MEADVILLE — The Allegheny College 2013 Hall of Fame Class has been announced. The class includes an Olympian, a seven-time All-American, an 11-time conference champion and one of the school’s most impressive basketball players.

Jeremy Scott is likely one of the most recognizable Allegheny athletes at the national level.

Scott was a six-time NCAC champion and two-time NCAA Division III champion.

In 2000, he captured his first NCAC outdoor championship, before earning his first All-America nod with a second-place finish at the NCAA Division III Championships.

After earning his first NCAC indoor title in 2001, Scott repeated as the NCAC champion and NCAA runner-up in the outdoor championships. Scott, again, swept the NCAC indoor and outdoor titles in 2002, while also winning the conference outdoor high jump crown with a leap of 6-8, but took his career to the next level, as he won the NCAA Division III championship in both events.

Scott rode the momentum of his historic season to take second at the 2002 U.S. Championships with an NCAA all-division record vault of 18-8, before wrapping up his career at Allegheny in 2003 with his third consecutive NCAC indoor title, posting a leap of 18-2 3/4, still a conference record. After graduating in 2003, Scott used his final semester of collegiate eligibility to enroll at the University of Arkansas and helped the Razorbacks to the 2004 SEC Championship.

Scott then embarked on a professional career. He was consistently ranked among the top-25 in the world, and top-10 in the United States. Scott was the nation’s top-ranked indoor vaulter in both 2010 and 2011, before finishing second at the 2012 Olympic trials to achieve the ultimate goal of participating in the 2012 Olympic Games. In 2013, he finished as the national outdoor runner-up, and took part in the IAAF World Championships in Moscow.

David Masciola’s name can still be found all over the Allegheny men’s basketball record books. He ranks third all-time in scorimng with 1,443 career points and is fourth in 3-point field goals (169) and seventh in free throws (252).

He is a two-time Raymond P. Shafer Award winner. He was the North Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Year during the 1995-96 season.

Amy Schukert Seago, a 1999 graduate, still stands as one of the most decorated cross country and track athletes in Allegheny College history.

The 11-time NCAC champion, won the NCAC title in both the 800-meter and 1500-meter runs each of her last three seasons in outdoor track and field and was also the NCAC Middle/Distance Runner of the Year each of those years.

In indoor track, she was named the NCAC Middle/Distance Runner of the Year in 1998 and 1999 with championship runs in the 800-meter those years. She also won the 3,000-meter in 1998 and the 1,500-meter in 1999.

Just as impressive on the cross country course, she was a First Team All-NCAC finisher in 1997, taking second at the conference championship meet, before earning NCAC Runner of the Year honors with a first-place finish in 1998,  when she went on to earn First Team All-Region honors and qualify for the NCAA National Championship. In 2003, she was named to the NCAC 1993-2002 All-Decade Teams for both track and cross country.

Seago is currently the head cross country and track and field coach at Division I College of Charleston.

Patrick Stewart shined for the Allegheny swimming and diving teams during his career in the late 1980s. Stewart earned All-America honors all four years and helped lead Allegheny to four consecutive to-20 finishes at the NCAA Division III Championships.

Stewart had five first-place finishes at the NCAC championships and was an eight-time All-NCAC performer, setting the conference record in the 200 individual medley.

The 2013 Hall of Fame induction ceremony is Sept. 28 at 11 a.m. at the Schultz Banquet Hall. The ceremony is open to the public, though reservations are required. To RSVP, contact Lori Riggle at 332-3350 or lriggle@allegheny.edu by Sept. 18.

Poll

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
