The Mack Report delivers up to date, breaking and relevant sporting news from Merrimack College athletics.
The Mack Report was founded in 2006 by Eagle Tribune Merrimack writer Mike McMahon as a blog, then titled Warrior Rink Rat, to provide coverage of the Warriors’ Division I hockey program in conjunction with coverage provided in the newspaper.
Since then, it has evolved its own entity, and while still providing conjunction coverage with Mike’s work in The Eagle Tribune, is a standalone news source covering Merrimack College athletics and Hockey East.
