Coyote senior confident of more wins

REED CITY — Reed City’s girls basketball team enters the break at 2-4 and senior Keylee Aemisegger is confident the Coyotes are capable of many more wins in 2016.

The Coyotes lost 39-35 to Newaygo prior to the break in Central State Activities Association action and enter the break with a three-game losing streak.

“It’s really more of a confidence thing,” Aemisegger said. “We need to try a lot harder. We’ve been working as a team a lot better. We need to work in cohesion.”

The Coyotes weren’t able to win a game last season, but have progressed to the point they feel they should have more than two wins after their first six games.

“I believe we’re playing really good,” Aemisegger said. “But we have a little bit further to go and I believe we can get there.”

Aemisegger plays post and has focused on defense.

“I think it’s going pretty good,” she said. “Most of the time I try to take the charges and most of the time I get them.”

The Coyotes are off until Jan. 5 when they are home against Fremont.

“The focus (during break) will be working on our defense more and learning to shoot under pressure,” Aemisegger said. “We just need to believe in ourselves and our teammates. I want to see us get better at shooting the ball when we’re on offense.”
