Reed City freshman catcher off to strong start

REED CITY — Kamryn Myers has made a fast transition to the varsity softball level as a freshman.

She’s been Reed City’s catcher this season.

The Coyotes have had mixed success during the season and have usually split doubleheaders.

“The first game, we played pretty well,” Myers said. “We were hitting the ball. The second game, we lost our intensity.”

For her first varsity season, “it’s going pretty good, not that bad,” Myers said.

She’s played since the second grade, “Being patient a lot” has been the key, she said, in having success on the varsity level.

Myers is a lefthanded hitter and she suspects that may throw pitchers off somewhat. Myers started as a catcher several years ago at the coach’s request. She is confident in her arm.

The Coyotes have been playing around .500 so far this season.

“We’re doing pretty good, we work well together,” Myers said. “We need to have a lot more intensity.”

Reed City is home Friday against Central State Activities Association Gold Division rival Chippewa Hills.
