Reed City freshman making contributions

REED CITY — Kamryn Myers realizes the challenges that come with being a freshman on a varsity girls basketball team.

But so far, Myers has been up to the challenge and is helping the Coyotes enjoy success on the court.

“It was pretty nerve racking at first,” she said.

Myers was told during the summer she would be playing on the varsity team.

“I was happy, excited, and a little bit nervous,” she said.

But after 15 games, “it’s been going pretty good,” she said. “Our season has been OK.”

As the season progresses, Myers has been working on playing good defense and getting to the basket, which have been her main roles.

“I’ve been doing pretty good,” she said, adding that her “elbow” shots have been her strongest ones.  Myers has focused on improving her free throws, and is looking at shooting more.

“I’ve improved a lot more since (early) in the season,” she said.

The Coyotes have six wins after going winless last season but they’re looking at winning the rest of their games, Myers said.

“We should have won some of our other games,” Myers added.

She also plays softball and volleyball. But basketball has given Myers her first taste of varsity action.

Reed City is home next Tuesday night against Grant.
