REED CITY — Jordyn Storch said she learned plenty as a freshman varsity setter for the Reed City volleyball team.

While the learning process obviously continues, Storch is looking forward to showing the improvement she has made as a sophomore.

She especially learned about “her footwork and where to set the ball,” Storch said at last week’s Coyote ball control camp.

It didn’t take Storch long to discover how challenging it is on the high school level to set the ball to different hitters.

Storch also attended separate sessions Reed City had for setters.

“We work on footwork and set the ball in (right) places,” Storch said.

She would like to think she’s improved “a little bit” from last season, but admits she feels more comfortable on the varsity level this fall. Most of the players have returned from last season’s team, a factor that also makes the preseason easier for players like Storch.

Last week’s ball control camp lasted two days and was another summer activity Storch considered as extremely valuable.

“It helps a lot,” she said.

She’s a setter, but Storch plans on using other strengths to help the Coyotes.

“I’m pretty good at passing,” she said.

The Coyotes open their practice season on Aug. 12 to get ready for a season that starts Aug. 22 at Ludington. They will soon start into a full Central State Activities Association Gold Division schedule.

“I think we’re going to be pretty good this year,” Storch said. “We all work as a team.”
