Duddles caps off strong varsity career
REED CITY -- Reed City's girls basketball team has been struggling against injuries in recent years.
This winter, Alison Duddles, in her senior year and third varsity season, was able to basically stay healthy as one of the area's tallest post players around and make her presence felt.
"We need to shoot more, make sure our feet are set when we shoot and make smart passes," she said during the season.
Duddles played in just about every game for the Coyotes.
"I had the flu but I didn't miss a game," Duddles said. "I would say it's my best season. I've shot more from outside, have dribbled more and have gotten confident with everything I've done."
Duddles finished a strong volleyball career for the Coyotes and was hoping to end the basketball season strong at RCHS.
"We need to make smart passes and smart reads," Duddles said going into the final weeks of the season.
The Coyotes ended at 4-17 and highlights included two wins over Chippewa Hills and single wins over Lakeview and Tri County. Another highlight was a close 45-38 loss to Big Rapids on the road.
