Coyote senior optimistic with rest of the season’s prospects
REED CITY — Kayla Davis is among the Reed City seniors hungry for title success for the girls basketball season.
She’s in her second varsity season. Going to the district finals and posting a winning record were among the highlights she enjoyed from last season. Also a volleyball player, Davis recalls working on her basketball skills during the summer, playing in the gym with her dad during the weekends. Most of the players for the Coyotes also played volleyball, which works to their advantage, Davis indicated.
“It keeps us pretty close as a team,” Davis said. “We all get along.”
As a guard, Davis has been contributing valuable minutes for the Coyotes especially in the areas of rebounding and defense.
“I think I’m pretty good at boxing out and getting the rebound,” she said.
Reed City entered this week at 2-4, a mark which Davis and her teammates feel should be better.
“Our shots aren’t falling right now,” she said. “When that starts going, it will come.”
Davis hopes to work on her shooting and overall offense.
“We can improve a lot,” Davis said. “We’ve improved since the beginning of the season.”
During the holidays, Davis and her teammates spent time buying gifts and presenting them to needy families. It’s an event the Coyotes have done in years past.
“It’s amazing, I love doing it, just knowing we’re helping the families,” she said.
