By defeating the state's 10th ranked team, Union, in the last game of the regular season
3-0, their sixth win in a row, the Golden Knight soccer team raised their record to 14-1-1,
breaking the old school record of wins by two. Scoring all their goals in the first period, the
team was turned on by freshman Larry Martin's two-goal performance which raised his season
total to 13.
Ranked second in the state, Clarkson hosted Alfred at Snell Field for the semifinals of
the New York State regional. Tied 1-1 at the end of the game, the teams played two overtime
periods without score. Even though the Golden Knights lost in the subsequent shootout 4-2, the
game officially is recorded as a tie, making the final overall record 14-1-2, the best in
Clarkson's history.
Loafing for Hunger.
Over 100 students "loafed" for hunger for an entire Saturday evening and
most of Sunday morning in March as the members of Sigma Chi fraternity and Delta Zeta
sorority baked over 100 loaves of bread in their second annual "Loafing for Hunger" project.
The students undertook this project to help relieve hunger in the area.
Along with members of the faculty and administration, the students baked bread all
night long in the University kitchens, then distributed the loaves to seven Potsdam-area
churches. There, those in need merely helped themselves; others bought the loaves or simply
contributed to the project. The fraternity and sorority donated the profits to the churches who
distributed the money to help the needy.

in the history of Clarkson.
