Borst hopes to help Coyotes pick up more girls basketball wins

REED CITY — Reed City’s girls basketball team continues to look for more wins after coming off a victory Friday against Central State Activities Association Gold Division rival Tri County.

Junior Meghan Borst and her teammates will be looking for success Friday night when they play at Newaygo in league action.

It’s the second varsity season for Borst. Last season, she focused on adjusting to the speed of the game. She’s been a post player both seasons with a major focus on rebounding.

“I worked on post moves” during the offseason, she recalled. “I think I’ve improved quite a bit. I’m definitely more aggressive. Things are going pretty good.”

Borst has seen playing time from off the bench in making key contributions. She’s looking to improve on her shooting and added her best shot usually comes from down low.

Borst also has been satisfied with her defense. She’s usually been focusing on inside players.

The Coyotes entered this week at 5-8.

“I think we’re doing pretty good,” Borst said. “We play hard. We need to play both sides of the court.”

Improving on scoring also is a key for the Coyotes, Borst added. As the season progresses, her team is also focusing on contending for the district title.
