Road Trips

Playoffs

Football

Hockey

Men's: Quarters at Harvard (eliminated)

  • When coach Addessa heard that the band wasn't planning on going to Harvard, he called Bill Smith asking the band to make an appearance. Bill quickly organized a van and small band on that same day.

Other

  • For the parade we had a "Hawaii Five-O" theme.
  • The big tradition: throwing the officers into a snow bank.
  • The Clarkson band and the RPI band combine for a song on stage.
  • Coach Addessa resigns after being accused of making 'racial remarks' to the team.
  • Performances at Frosh Parade. Ben and Jerry's on Lark St. becomes a post-game tradition.
