Quincy University’s Hall of Fame Soccer Coach, Jack Mackenzie, will be inducted posthumously into the Washington University Sports Hall of Fame in St. Louis this Friday.
Mackenzie will be one of six former student-athletes, one distinguished service honoree and one team to be a part of Washington University’s 18th induction class for their Sports Hall of Fame. The induction ceremonies will be held during a breakfast at 8 a.m. at the Knight Center tomorrow in St, Louis.
Individual honorees joining Mackenzie (from the class of 1963, Men’s Soccer) in the Hall of Fame include Alli Alberts (Class of 2009, Volleyball, Track & Field), Maggie (Grabow) Koszewski (Class of 2005, Women's Cross Country, Track & Field), Jenny Scott (Class of 2006, Women's Swimming), Colleen (Winter) Stovesand (Class of 2005, Volleyball) and John Watts (Class of 2010, Men's Tennis).

While at Washington University, Mackenzie was a three-year letter winner from 1960-1962, and earned All-Region honors as a junior. He helped lead the team to a combined record of 23-4-2 in three seasons. Mackenzie and the Wash-U defense allowed just seven goals in 1962.
