The Female Raider of the Month for January is Jessica Woney. The hardworking, 5’6” senior guard has been a key factor in the Lady Raiders’ rise to the upper tiers of both Region 3 and Mountain Valley Conference play. Team Co-Captain Woney can score from outside the arc, she can drive through the paint, and she drives the baseline very well, but she also seems just as intent on passing to an open teammate as she is in scoring herself. Her six assists per game put her among the top three playmakers in the region. She is also averaging 11 points, 6 rebounds, and 2.5 steals per game.
FM Head Coach Kevin Jones had this to say about Woney: “Jess has been a steady performer from the point for us. She has had a great combination of scoring when needed and setting her teammates up for scoring opportunities. Also, as a defender, she has been critical in guarding our opponents’ best players.”
