REED CITY — Reed City girl’s soccer almost didn’t have a JV team because of lack of players going to try out. Thankfully they were able to get just enough girls to fill the field with only one substitute.
Danielle Emington, a 2008 Reed City graduate, is enjoying her new title as JV coach. Soccer has been in her life since she was a young girl. Starting at age 4, she played with AYSO all through school and then with the high school team. As her father, Doug Emington, would coach, Danielle would help by being a ball girl, assisting with practices and games, and practicing with the boys teams when they were short. “I love the strategy of the game and I love coaching. I always knew it was something I wanted to do, but I never imagined the opportunity would come knocking on my door so soon.”
