of the league playoffs. CCT had made it to Boston 14 times out of 20, and were runners-up in
1962, 1970, and 1971. The only time Clarkson won the ECAC was in 1966.
Finishing the season on a five-game winning streak, the Knights placed fifth in the
ECAC with a record of 18-9-1, and second in the West Region with a record of 13-6-1. St.
Lawrence led the West Region, Providence the East Region, and Harvard the Ivy Region. The
Knights faced St. Lawrence in the quarter finals, but were defeated in the two-game playoff
against the Saints.
CCT-SLU Hockey Record.
Since the series between the two schools began in 1925, the two
schools have met 106 times; Clarkson leads the series with 67 wins, 34 losses, and five ties.
Over the last 10 years, Clarkson has won 28 and lost only three to SLU. The two teams have
met three times in the playoffs. The Saints defeated the Knights 5-2 in the championship game
in 1962. Clarkson came back the next year and defeated the Saints 7-5 in the consolation game
to take third place in the 1963 tournament. This year, Clarkson lost the first game 3-5, won the
second 2-1, and lost the third, a mini-game 0-3.
Student Events.
A summary of the events taking place on and off campus during the year
revealed that indeed there was "plenty to do" in Potsdam.
• In a race to benefit the Potsdam Rescue Squad, the "Budweiser Light 10K Run" was
held on September 19. Clarkson students finished second and third in the race.
• Greek Week was held from September 26 through October 2, as the fraternities and
sororities staged events to acquaint freshmen with Greek life. Included this year were a
slide show about Greek life, the traditional chariot races, and a chicken BBQ put on by
the Interfraternity Council.
• A concert on October 6 brought ".38 Special" to the IRC, as drums and guitars rocked
through the night. Although the warm-up band, "Spys," gave a good performance, they
were not up to the quality of the main attraction's renditions of "Hold On Loosely," and
"Wild Eyed Southern Boys" which got the audience singing, rocking, and clapping,
southern style.
• During the week of October 18, the Junior Prom centered around a 1920s theme. The
annual junior-senior hockey game started off the week, and was followed by a BBQ and
a vaudeville show with Friedhoffer: the Madman of Magic. The week ended with the
"Harvest Moon Ball."
• "Culture" arrived in the form of the National Shakespeare Touring Company to
perform one of Shakespeare's best loved comedies, "As You Like It."
• The weekend of October 29 was special, for it marked the first time Parent's Weekend
and Homecoming were combined. This was done to attract more parents to campus for
the weekend, and to give the student organizations a chance to display some of their
hard work. The Jazz Band gave successful performances; an activities fair allowed the
various clubs and groups to explain their organizations to would-be members; the
Drama Club staged a highly successful production of Neil Simon's play, "Barefoot in
the Park" to sold-out audiences in Snell Auditorium; and the traditional Homecoming
hockey game took place.
• December 4, 1982, was an important day for many Clarkson students, for that was a
momentous "D-DAY": the day New York State's legal drinking age rose from 18 to 21.
