MAXCY HALL ICE ARENA READY TO GO WITH RENOVATIONS
Nearly 40 year's after Maxcy Hall Ice Arena's opening, SUNY Potsdam has begun major renovations to the facility. This year-long, $8.7 million project will feature several new amenities and a brand new ice surface for the Bears, students and community members when it reopens in the fall of 2013.
With the changes being made, Maxcy will continue to be one of the leading athletics venues in the North Country and the Northeast as it hosts recreational skating, youth hockey, and both Bears' hockey teams.
In addition to the fan accommodations, the Bears' hockey teams and coaches will be able to enjoy new and modern team locker rooms, coaches' offices and a center ice player entrance. A locker room for referees will also be added. The new enlarged press box will be constructed above the team benches, putting scorekeeping staff and media right on top the action.
Due to the renovation, the Bears hockey teams are preparing for a year away from home. The men will play their home games at Massena Arena in neighboring Massena, N.Y. The women will stay closer to home, moving just across town to Clarkson University's Cheel Arena.
The Bears men open up their 2012-13 campaign against Saint Michael's College in Massena on Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. Potsdam's women travel to Newport, R.I. the following day to battle Salve Regina in their season opener at 7 p.m.

There will be an informational meeting for anyone interested in playing for the SUNY Canton golf team on Sunday, August 19 at 7 p.m. at Partridge Run Golf and Country Club. For more information contact head coach Kevin Maginn at 323-1441 or
