1915-1916 Men's Hockey Team
Coach Santee (no first name was given in the 1916 yearbook) was in his first year coaching the Polar Hockey team.  The coach seemed upset about the treatment of the team by students.  In the 1916 Polaris, Santee called hockey a "poverty sport." He said, "...it has been shunned and actually avoided by pampered youths who think it too strenuous form of exercise for winter weather."

Regardless of the coach's feelings, the team attempted to be successful.   The team won three of its eight games.  The five games lost were by close margins.  Coach Santee said if the team had new equipment and more practice time, they would have won the conference championship.
