#TBT: Honoring a Legend

Throwback Thursday

On Saturday the basketball court in Merkert Gymnasium will be officially dedicated as the Paula Sullivan Court during a ceremony prior to the women’s basketball game. With over four decades of outstanding service to Stonehill, Paula brought excellence to everything she handled. She turned a fledgling program into a national powerhouse and retired as one of the winningest basketball coaches of all-time. During the 1993-94 season, she led her team to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight for the first time in school history.

Coach Mac

Throwback Thursday

This week we lost a Stonehill legend with the passing of Tom MacDonald ’53. Universally known as “Coach Mac,” he was the driving force behind the revival of football at the College. In 2012, a special roast was held at the College in his honor and at the event, Head Football Coach Rob Talley said, “If it wasn’t for men like Tom MacDonald, there would be no football program here at Stonehill.” This past Saturday before MacDonald’s passing on Monday, the Skyhawk’s defeated rival Bentley 24-17, its first road victory there since 1995.
