Scott Steele ’81
Major: Political Science
Achievement: Won a silver medal in wind surfing the 1984 Olympics
With help from Mike Ironmonger, St. Mary’s Waterfront Director, Scott and Monty Spindler ’79 started a windsurfing craze at the St. Mary’s. In 1980 the College sponsored the first intercollegiate windsurfing regatta held in the U.S. Seven colleges participated and Scott won the free-style and distance championships in the lightweight division. In 1981 Scott was named to the All-American sailing team and the All-MAISA team, both for a second time. In 1983 Scott was named windsurfer world champion. In 1984 he ranked as the top male boardsurfer in the U.S. He was also the only U.S. athlete to participate in the windsurfing competition at the 1984 Summer Olympics, where he captured the silver medal, despite being what the Baltimore Evening Sun called “the smallest and most lightly regarded member of the U.S. sailing team.” Scott was named head coach of Georgetown University’s co-ed varsity sailing team in 1995. In 1998 he was one of five Anne Arundel County residents selected for the County’s Sports Hall of Fame. In 2009 he was named Severn School’s sailing coach.
Most Memorable Sports Experience at St. Mary’s:
“Winning the “A” division at the Denmark Trophy held at the US Coast Guard Academy by over 40 points and earning the school’s first major intersectional victory beating out the top sailing programs in the nation.”
“I miss the competition of college sailing as it has not been duplicated after college. I enjoy going back to the annual ‘Possum Bowl’ alumni regatta every year to bring back the great memories.”
“My St. Mary’s experience laid the foundation for me to reach the Olympic Games, become a silver medalist and recipient of great awards that has landed me in several Hall of Fames including the Anne Arundel County Hall of Fame and the Rhode Island Heritage Hall of Fame for my success in sailing and windsurfing.”
