REED CITY – Paityn Enos is looking forward to her sophomore softball season at Reed City. So are the Coyotes.

Enos was among the top freshman players for a strong Reed City team during the recently completed season. She indicated she has been playing travel softball since she was 10 years old.

“It’s definitely been challenging,” Enos said of the transition. “I’ve been with the coaches since I was little and you have to able to make the transition to coaches.”

Enos played center field for the Coyotes this seasons. It’s always been her position.

“There’s just so much going on out there,” she said. “You really control the game out there.”

Her defense is solid. She did throw out runners during the season.

Enos was among the top Reed City hitters.

“There’s some games that have been shaky but it always comes around in the end,” Enos said. “The key is practice.”

Enos served as a backup pitcher for the Coyotes. She pitched a five inning-no hitter against Ludington on June 1.

“I pitched when I was younger then I quit and I picked it up again this year,” Enos said. “My strength is definitely my fastball.”

Enos will be keeping busy with summer softball.

She also plays basketball and played JV last season.

“I’m hoping to play varsity this year,” Enos said. “Softball is my favorite. It’s just better.”
