Massachusetts Sen. Edward Markey praised the achievement of Watertown High School’s field hockey team on the floor of  the U.S. Senate this week, after the team’s unbeaten streak ended after 184 games.

“For nearly nine years the Raiders have been truly perfect,” Markey said, adding that the team set the longest unbeaten streak in national high school field hockey history.

He added that WHS field hockey coach Eileen Donohue is “one of the most historic figures in Massachusetts High School athletics.

Watertown lost for the first time since Nov. 12, 2008 on Tuesday when they fell 3-0 in a game at Winchester High School.
