REED CITY — Reed City had an improved soccer season and finished fifth in the eight-team Central State Activities Association this year.

Katelynn Latin and Taylor Harrison were on the first team. Harrison a freshman, center-midfielder, had 10 goals and three assists.

“Taylor has great foot skills and attacks the goal with a determination to score,” Reed City coach Bryan Hall said. “She has been a strong varsity player in her first year and will continue to grow into a player to be respected throughout the area.”

Katelynn Latin was a senior goalkeeper-defender.

“Katelynn's aggressive and fearless style of play allowed us to be competitive all season long,” Hall said. “She played relentless as our keeper and made several great saves.”

Karlie Kerns a freshman, was on the honorable mention list. She was an outside midfielder, with goals and six assists.

“Karlie has exceptional conditioning allowing her to run the outside of the field the entire game,” Hall said. “Her foot skills also help her maneuver through defenders and find her open team mates.”

Another strong player for the Coyotes was senior forward Katelin Reed, who had 11 goals and two assists.

“Katelin's speed was her greatest asset and allowed her to get free of her defender and score,” Hall said.

The Coyotes will miss several seniors from this season's team, including Allyeha Chaney. She was on varsity for her second season and played various positions. Her favorite position was attacking mid. You play the ball with the forward playing up the middle and when they cross it in, you try to get the ball in the goal.”

She also played fullback.

The Coyotes won more games this season, Chaney noted.

“It was teamwork and thinking positively;” she said.
