FROM LAST TIME


Ice men? Rob Ellerstein ’83 and Peter Cornelius ’83 saw them- selves in this 1980 team photo. Cornelius notes that Peter Mac- Donald ’79 (far right, in necktie) was their student coach, as hockey didn’t become a varsity sport until the next year. Eller- stein says, “Brings back a lot of fond memories.” Cornelius says he still plays hockey weekly and helps coach his son’s team. Jason Kurchner ’81 recalls that the skaters “were the Wom- bats, as were other Skidmore teams” before Skidmore adopted the Thoroughbreds nickname. Bryan Bernart ’80 recalls, “We were awful, but we were a new program and we all had fun. At least now the team doesn’t have to play beer leaguers—that was in- teresting.” Lance Wachen- heim ’85, a rookie in the year after this photo, recog- nizes a few upperclassmen, including two who became his coaches: “goalie Steve Cornell ’81, and I think #14 in the back is Steve Yale


’81.” He adds, “I still have my Skidmore jerseys.” Consensus suggests: in the back, Jeff Raverby ’83, Brian Fer- nandes ’83, Bill LaPierre ’83, Cornelius, Yale, Jim Morrison ’83, Ellerstein, Steve Fugazy ’82, Charlie Audet ’80, and MacDonald; in front, Ron Rubbico ’83, Brian O’Brien ’82, Mike Marino ’83, Cornell, Anthony Giordano ’83, Shannon Baker ’83, and Peter Frautschi ’83.


For Jessica Goldberg Farkas ’82 and Helen Makohon ’83, this is a “blast from the past” that’s “too funny to see and remem- ber.” Betsy Linzer Rick- ert '81 remembers the rink where it was shot. And Kathleen Colqu - houn Halm ’81 adds this postscript: “Say it ain’t so! We aren’t that old yet, are we? Should- n’t these archival pho- tos feature people who graduated 40 years ago, not young kids like us?” —SR
