YOS I: THEN AND NOW r There is no other structure in this athletic campus that has as much Michigan tradi- tion as Yost Ice Arena, " stated Keith Molin, retired Senior Associate Director of Athletics. Yost Ice Arena has a rich past that most students did not know about. Yost Ice Arena, originally called Yost Field House, was named after the legendary football coach and athletic director, Fielding H. Yost. Built in 1922, the 56,430 square foot building has been an impor- tant part of the lives of athletes and fa ns for seventy- eight years. Originally, Yost Field House was an all-purpose athletic facility. From football and baseball to track and field, the high ceilings allowed every University athlete except swimmers to prac- tice and compete in the building. Yost Field House changed names and functions in November 1 973, when the building became Yost Ice Arena and the home of Michigan ' s hockey team. Originally costing $563,000 in 1922, the arena has undergone many renovations. In 1992, the Univer- sity spent $1.2 million on the building, and in 1 996, another $5.5 million, which included first floor remodeling, a new Michigan hockey locker room and training facilities, second floor administrative offices, and new press box facilities. These added renovations made Yost Ice Arena a state-of-the-art facility while maintaining its historical integrity. Yost Ice Arena was one of the most unique arenas in college hockey because it retained the charm of an old barn, but offered the amenities of most modern arenas. Built 78 years ago, the building is still a model for other hockey arenas. Keith Molin stated, " A few weeks ago I went to the ground breaking for Northern Michigan ' s new hockey arena. Their building was modeled after Yost. " Not only was the building historic, but it had an " May this building, bearing his name, stand through the years as a silent but compel- ling witness to the worth of loyalty, integrity, and man- hood.

Senior oceanography i jor and hockey fan, Erin Baird, raved about stadium as she said, " Yost is one of the best ho- arenas around. It is lively and entertaining, an fans get really into the games. " Michigan hockey players believed the ai sphere of the stadium added a lot to their pe mance. Captain Sean Peach stated, " My fon memory of Yost is the first time I wore the rr and blue Michigan jersey and came out to the Yost, with the band playing ' The Victors ' , an eryone standing together. The whole atmosp of Yost embodies the Michigan spirit which I remember for the rest of my life. " There was no doubt that Yost Ice Arena h rich, historical background.

TRUE 5LUE: IM SPORTS All fun for everyone For those who were not able to wear the maize and blue for the prestigious varsity or club teams, there were always intramural sports. Without prior experience, students were able to join these intramural teams, which included every sport known to man. If soccer was not your preferred sport, it was okay because there were at least twenty-five other sports to participate in, including traditional three-on- three basketball, volleyball, ice hockey, and wres- tling. Even the most bizarre sports were offered, including broomball and wally ball. A free throw contest was just another option for those who did not want to join a team. Unlike varsity and club sports, intramural sports were open to all students and did not require tryouts. In fact, IM sports did not even require coaches; instead, student managers were in charge of organizing practices and games. Furthermore, teams were not divided along gender lines, as there were co-ed teams, all-male and all-female teams, and teams created by different organizations such as fraternities and sororities. Each team belonged to a different division, and only teams within the same division scrimmaged throughout the season. All sports had a season of four to five weeks, during which three or four games were played before play- offs. During practice time, players usually practiced drills, but as first-year LSA student Laura Breymann commented, " IM sports are much less competitive. They are less stressful, take up less time, and are not as disciplined as the varsity or club sports. " IM sports were more directed towards fun than anything else, and often proved to be a way to socialize and familiarize oneself with the University. Sophomore LSA student Heidi Mittelbach said, " The reason I chose to play on an IM team was because of the benefits. It was a great way to meet people you had never spoken to before. It was a lot of fun and good exercise. " Agreeing with Mittelbach, first-year engineering student Bill Mencer said, " IM sports create this great social atmosphere, and are mainly for those who just want to have a good time while socializing. " Eric Harding, also a first-year engineering student, further stated, " It is a good thing to have IM sports when you just want to get in volved and get your mind off of all the work you have been doing for class. I definitely think I will continue playing IM sports.
