Coyote soccer team hope to start season soon

REED CITY — The numbers are there for Reed City to have a competitive season in girls soccer this spring.

Now the weather has to cooperate to help the Coyotes start the season.

A game for today at Reed CiIty was not expected to be played with a heavy snow surface still on the soccer field.

The Coyotes are in their second week of practice. They have another game scheduled next week before going on break. That game also is iffy, meaning RC might go into break without a game. The first match would then be in early April after the team returns from break.

“I don’t really care if I get a game in or not,” said Reed City coach Bryan Hall. “We haven’t been outside yet and that’s the big thing, We need to get outside. We sill have three inches of snow on our field.”

The varsity has 11 seniors and 11 juniors. The JV has 13 players.

Top returning players include senior Morgan Cook, who spearheads the defense and Miranda Burch, also on defense. Both are seniors.

“We have a strong junior class coming that’s more athletic,” Hall said, noting that some of them, while being on the JVs last year, did pick up some varsity experience. “They played some solid minutes for us.”

Heather Tacey is set to be goalkeeper.
