Hensel confident Coyotes can keep winning

REED CITY — Reed City’s girls basketball team has been on a roll lately and the Coyotes are hoping it continues.

Karah Hensel had a big stretch for the Coyotes in scoring 14 points in a win over White Cloud on Monday last week and eight against Big Rapids last Thursday. That brought the Coyotes to Morley Stanwood Monday with a five-game win streak, which ended in a tough 59-50 overtime loss to the Mohawks.

Rebounding has been a key for the Coyotes in recent games.

“We’re working on our fast break, getting out and running,” Hensel said. “After (a loss to Lakeview), we had a huge talk on how we had a chance to be really good and we had to keep going.

“We’ve been playing together a lot.”

Hensel has been focusing on offense, especially when it comes to faking and driving.

“We can’t come out like the first time we played Morley. We have to come out with more intensity,” she said prior to that game. Obviously, the Coyotes just barely missed out on getting a huge win over the Mohawks

With the season heading into its final weeks, the Coyotes have set a goal for not losing and to keep that going as long as possible. They are home Thursday with Holton, at Newaygo Monday and at home Feb. 6 with Lakeview.

“We’ve been in every game beside the Lakeview game when we didn’t play well,” Hensel said. “We want to make a good run in the post-season which we have a good

chance to.”
