National kudos for Coach Donahue


The National High School Coaches Association has dubbed Eileen Donahue as its Coach of the Year in field hockey, recognizing her success at the helm of the perennially championship-winning Watertown High squad. Donahue’s teams have lost just 30 games during her 28-year tenure, and as of last Sunday the Red Raiders were on an undefeated streak of 101-0-3, dating to Nov. 12, 2008. The team broke the Massachusetts record for most consecutive undefeated games in field hockey when they beat Arlington, 2-0, on Sept. 10, passing Walpole High’s record set in the mid-1990s. The Watertown squad also has won the MIAA Division 2 title for the past four straight years. Donahue’s citation will be included in the National High School Sports Hall of Fame Museum in Easton, Pa. She also was sent a trophy and a certificate recognizing her award, said the association’s executive director, Bob Ferraro.
