Reed City girls fall to Chippewa Hills

REMUS – Reed City fell to 4-2 in the Central State Activities Association with a 17-25, 13-25, 25-14, 25-22, 15-10 loss to Chippewa Hills on Wednesday.

Reed City was able to roll to victories in the first two sets behind strong serving and hitting.

The Coyotes led 9-2 in the first game and 17-6 in the second game before posting the win.

But things started to change in the third game for Reed City and stayed that way through the end of the match.

“Volleyball is such a game of momentum that when it goes, it can go quickly and nobody can tell you why it happens,” Reed City coach Don Patterson said. “This match sort of tells you the story of our season; we played well in the first two games but then we had serving errors and hitting errors in games three and four. When it comes to game five, anything can happen. A break here or there and we win.”

The Coyotes were paced by Heather Tacey with 33 assists, 20 digs and nine aces. Emma Lockhart added 26 digs and seven kills, while Jacolyn Mullins tallied 25 digs and 16 digs

Kalee Hensel recorded 25 digs.
