CANFIELD OH- With small high schools across the state, families seem to run deep in every hall way. There isn’t a school you could go to and not find a family name, or names  that are rich in the tradition of that school. South Range has a family that fits the mold perfectly, and it’s the Feren’s.  The Feren’s have been a part of South Range for decades.  As students, athletes, coaches, teachers, athletic directors, you name it a Feren has done it inside the halls of South Range. Because of the deep roots of his family, current athletic director, and assistant softball coach Donny Feren gets the blessing of coaching his daughter Jamie through a successful softball career.

Jamie’s senior season was unfortunately halted due to an injury not too long ago. However one of the things that makes her dad, the rest of her coaches, and her teammates the most proud is how she has responded to the adversity that has been put in front of her. She still leads with the same energy that she always did, and she is always finding ways to help her team grow.  Where some athletes might find despair, Feren has found positivity and grace.

In the middle of getting ready for regional tournament play both Donny and Jamie Feren sat down with DJ Yokley on YSN’s Power Hour to have an awesome and candid conversation. They talk about their family dynamic, share some great stories, memories, and laughs, and much more.

The statement was made as the Raiders swept Hubbard (27-25 25-13 25-17).

The Raiders fought hard throughout the night against a Lakeview team that came into the match only dropping four sets total all season. The Raiders had momentum in set one, as Lakeview took some time to find a rhythm. However, a late 4-0 run gave the Bulldogs just enough room to squeak past the Raiders in set one 25-22.

That momentum carried straight into set four as the Bulldogs took a 7-1 lead early. The Raiders kept up the fight though, after Maria Primavera had to leave the court due to injury, Jami Stachowicz rattled off five kills the rest of the set to fill in. With the Raiders closing in fast, Peterson came up with a pair of clutch kills to take Lakeview to a match sealing set four win 25-22.
