Girls Varsity Tennis · Congrats to Coach Jeff MacFarland on his 500th win!


Lady Fliers Give Coach MacFarland WIN 500.

500. The number of laps drivers must endure to win the Indy. 500. A pinnacle reached for pro baseball home run hitters! In the world of psychics, even spirituality, seeing 500 promises through astrology that 500 sightings tell the earner to use the lessons learned along the way to gain wisdom and be glad you had the chance to reach 500.
Lastly, the horoscope gurus would tell Coach Mac his outstanding achievement of 500 tennis victories can change his life today and have an impact on his life forever!
Today against Bellevue of all teams, the accomplished coach of women’s and men’s tennis for 30 years saw a rare goal of 500 triumphs met in his Lady Fliers 5-0 over Sue Eastland’s Lady Red! His girls are now 5-1 in the Lake and 9-3 overall. They are surpassing experts’ preseason predictions. And a big part of the girls’ success has to be from the years of experience and learning of ‘ Coach Mac500’!

The win for the team was certainly big and kept the Lady Fliers hot in pursuit of Division favorite
Norwalk(6-0). The Truckers visit Clyde next Monday, just before the SBC’s at Perkins!
But for this beautiful Monday here at Clyde, it was all about the sportsman known as Coach Mac!
“I am all for Jeff. He goes beyond what many other coaches do,” Bellevue Coach Sue Eastland said to cgsnewsflier. “ Things like making sure his teams show respect for the game and for the opponents. When I first started coaching tennis, six years ago, he gave me so much help , help he did not have to do. He practices what he preaches and a large part of that is good sportsmanship.”
Thursday night as part of a cgsnewsflier EXCLUSIVE, find more out from the 500 Coach in an evening interview with him. Not many ever ‘see 500’. Nancy Hanger, Marc Marshall, and now Coach Jeff MacFarland. He has come so far from his days at Tiffin Calvert where he played football and tennis. And now that he has finally ‘seen’ the mythical 500, the tarot cards promise even better days ahead… for a dedicated science teacher and tennis mentor!
Congratulations, Coach Mac500! ☘️🎾🎾
