FRYEBURG — Jenny Perry has a very positive attitude and works very hard every day to improve, according to Fryeburg Academy Indoor Track Coaches

Kevin McDonald and Bob Collins.

“She has the potential to be a valuable member of the team as she continues to increase her knowledge of the (shot put) throws,” they said.

In recognition of her strong work ethic, determination, commitment and good sportsmanship, Jenny is this week’s Raider Boosters Club “Player of the Week.” Each week, a Fryeburg Academy athlete is recognized for his/her dedication (does more than what is asked), work ethic, coachability and academic good standing. Recipients receive a specially-designed t-shirt, sponsored by the Raiders Boosters Club.
