Reed City junior confident volleyball team will pick up more victories


REED CITY —  The Reed City volleyball season is going into its final weeks and players like junior Ally Yarger are confident the Coyotes will have their fair share of success before the season comes to an end.

One of the factors plaguing the Coyotes has been their inability at times to close out a game or match.

That was evident in a recent battle with Central Montcalm, which Reed City lost 3-0. In the second game, Reed City was up 18-13 but lost 25-22. The Coyotes never seemed to regain their momentum after that.

“We have to keep our momentum and energy and have fun,” Yarger said, adding that picking up more regular-season wins and getting ready for a strong district performance is a major priority right now. “We have to focus and we have to play (intense).”

Yarger indicated she’s been satisfied with her play.

“I could be playing better. I’ve been hitting the ball pretty solid,” she said. “Definitely my serving (could improve) and my passing could be better ... getting it high for the setter.”

On her serving, Yarger said she wants to focus on (which area) “I’m serving to, and then make them,” she said. “I’ve been more accurate. Things are getting better.”

The Coyotes are in the Class B district at Chippewa Hills this week.
