ATTLEBORO, MA – Bishop Feehan High School is proud to announce that alum Jackson Perry’ 15 has been named varsity swimming and diving head coach, effective immediately.
Coach Perry holds two individual records and two relay records for Feehan. During his time with the Shamrocks, the team finished as both sectional and state runners-up, with individual and relay state titles. As a senior captain, he earned All-American consideration and broke a state meet record in the 100 butterfly.
"I am very excited to have Jackson join our coaching staff," said Feehan Athletic Director Christan Schatz. "He brings a great amount of positive energy and a strong track record of personal success to our already successful swimming and diving program.”
Jackson went on to swim for the varsity team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). There, he was a three-time Academic All-American, broke two school records, and was named a captain his senior year where he represented WPI at NCAA Championships in Greensboro, NC.
"I am excited about becoming the next head coach,” said Perry. “I am proud to continue the strong legacy of the Bishop Feehan swim and dive program."
Jackson will be switching roles with last year’s head coach, another Feehan alum, Jack Pettine. During the COVID-restricted ‘20-’21 season, Coach Jackson assisted Coach Pettine. For this coming year, largely due to schedule availability, Pettine will assist Jackson.
Jackson is originally from Cumberland, RI and currently resides in Boston, where he works as a data scientist for Bain & Company.
