In mid-September of 2020, Mac Ford and his wife hosted their daughter Molly’s wedding at their home. Mac remarked how they had to “bob and weave in this pandemic!” Mac hosted our 25th reunion at the same house, and it surely made a beautiful backdrop for his daughter’s big day.
A week before penning these remarks, Mac and his Notre Dame Prep girls’ lax team were in the sports section of the Baltimore Sun, where an article went into great detail about NDP’s bounce-back win in the last one-and-a-half minutes against St. Paul’s School for Girls. Per the article, “Notre Dame Prep (9-1 overall, 9-1 A Conference), the nation’s No. 13 team, grabbed the upper hand in the race for the top seed in the conference tournament, tied in the loss column with St. Paul’s (11-1, 11-1) with two games to play. The Blazers will be aiming for their first championship since ending McDonogh’s national-record 198-game winning streak in 2018.” Fingers crossed that Coach Ford and the team make it to the finals on May 15 at the field at US Lacrosse headquarters in Sparks, Maryland.
