The National High School Coaches Association announced its annual national high school Coach of the Year awards across 20 boys' and girls' sport and legendary Watertown field hockey head coach Eileen Donahue has been named as its Field Hockey Coach of the Year.

The Red Raiders, who currently are on an all-time, state- best 102-game unbeaten streak (99-0-3), have won 13 MIAA state titles under Donahue's guidance.

Here's more from the press release:
"Donahue ended the 2012 season by guiding Watertown to its 13th Massachusetts state field hockey championship, which was also the school’s 92nd straight game without a loss; going 90-0-2 during the streak. The win streak is tied for the fourth longest all-time in America. In her 27th year as head coach of the program, Watertown finished a perfect 23-0 in 2012 while wining the MIAA Division 2 title. Donahue’s lifetime record is 528-30-45."
