Our History

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.
