Mackin surpasses Fiskum for most NWAACC softball coaching wins

By Rick McCorkle
The Daily News ---- Longview

In his 16 seasons as head coach of the Lower Columbia College softball program, Tim Mackin's Lady Devils have claimed a conference-record nine NWAACC Softball titles, including an amazing run of six straight during 1999-2004.

On May 3, Mackin earned another distinction when his Lady Devils won a conference-record 576th game under his watch with an 8-0 victory over Clark College in a Southern Division contest at Hudson's Bay High School.

After the game, Mackin received a bouquet of balloons from Cam and Kristi Hanna, parents of LCC player Jessi Hanna, and posed for pictures with the team.

Mackin's 577-135 record (.810 winning percentage) moved him past former record holder Paul Fiskum, who led Clackamas College to a 575-213 record (.730) and eight conference titles in 19 seasons (1987-97, 1999-2006).

Fiskum earned his mark while coaching in 788 games, while Mackin reached the milestone in 710 contests.

Mackin, the director of Parks and Recreation for the city of Kelso, Wash., began coaching at LCC in 1993 after a stint as head coach at Mark Morris High School in Longview. He led the Lady Devils to their first NWAACC title in 1994, and after the run of six straight crowns, LCC is the two-time defending champ going into the conference championships during May 16-18 at Portland's Delta Park.

Prior to his coaching career, Mackin was catcher for legendary pitcher Eddie Feigner as a member of the "King and His Court" fastpitch softball team. During his time with the barnstorming softball team, Mackin once hit 321 home runs during a 220-game season that featured games in the United States, Australia and the Bahamas.
