REED CITY — By late in the volleyball season, Reed City’s Hanna Price could see where the team had been making plenty of strides.

“We’ve gotten a lot better and have made progress,” Price, a junior, said at the end of the regular season, adding that the improvement came “in basically everything. Serving has gotten better.”

Prior to entering districts, Reed City had three solid matches in a home quad against Benzie Central, White Cloud and Kingsley. Her hope was that at the Chippewa Hills district, the Coyotes could have success “if we play to our potential.”

Reed City defeated Clare in the semifinals of the Class B districts, but lost to Big Rapids in the title match. As a junior on a young team, Price focused on serve receives and serves.

On passing, Price noted that she was able to improve on delivering the ball to the setter, whether it be Liza Emington or Jordyn Storch. She also improved on being more consistent on where to place the serve, noting that during the matches, coach Don Patterson would advise her on a spot to serve the ball.

Price will be among the several players returning to the team in 2015.
