REED CITY —The volleyball regular season ended last week, and players entered the postseason with district play this week week.

But Reed City players like junior Kamryn Myers are confident good things lie ahead for their respective teams.

Reed City was 0-3 in a quad on Thursday to end the home season. But Myers likes the progress the team has been making

She's been a leftside hitter for Reed City in her first varsity year. Hitting comes at a faster pace.

"I've improved a lot," Myers said. "I pass a lot better now."

Myers has also been serving and passing extensively for the Coyotes.

"I'm pretty good at serving and passing," Myers said. "You have to take your time (at serving). You have to keep low and don't swing your arms (at passing)."

Reed City is at the Kalkaska districts this week.

"We're making some progress," she said. "We just have to have a positive attitude."

In Thursday matches, the Coyotes lost to White Cloud 25-15, 25-15, fell to Benzie Central 25-21, 25-19 and bowed to Kingsley 25-7, 25-16.

"We played really tough defense," Reed City coach Don Patterson said. "We served well at times. But we still had some areas where we still have to serve better."

In digs for Reed City, Mady Brown had 24, Sidni Rushford 23, Jordyn Storch 21, Kiera Barker 17, Hanna Boza seven Jenna Johnson and Myers six, and Maddie Morgan and Alison Duddles three apiece.

"All three were good matches," Patterson said. "I'm pleased with the effort.

Duddles also had three blocks and Storch had 43 assists. In kills, Rushford and Duddles had 13, Brown seven, and Johnson and Storch four. In aces, Johnson and Rushford had two while Morgan and Barker had one each.

"We still have to pass a little better and we still have to set a little better once we do get those passes in place," Patterson said.
