REED CITY — Reed City softball players have earned recent honors from the Central State Activities Association Gold Division and Division 3 district.

Jordyn Storch, Kamryn Myers and Sidni Rushford were on the all-district team. Storch, Rushford and Devin Willard have earned all-CSAA honors.

Storch is a junior who plays shortstop and bats lead off with a .440 batting average, .682 on base percentage, .848 slugging percentage, .857 fielding percentage, 13 doubles, 4 triples, 11 home runs, 29 stolen bases and 37 RBIs.

“Jordyn is a three-sport athlete and has broken two school records already in the 2017 softball season and will break at least four school records by the end of this season,” Reed City coach Roger Steig said. “She set a new school record for home runs with 11. All 11 were over the fence. Two of those were walk-offs to win the game. One was in the district championship game to advance our team to the regional. She also set a new school record for runs scored in a season at 69. She will set new school records this year for on-base percentage and slugging percentage.”

Myers is a sophomore who plays catcher, and bats second with a .424 batting avg., .587 on base percentage, .600 slugging percentage, .892 fielding percentage, 12 doubles, 5 triples, 16 stolen bases and 24 RBIs. “Kamryn set a new school record as a catcher this year throwing out 16 base runners attempting to steal.”

She has a .406 batting average, .568 on base percentage, .626 slugging percentage, .923 fielding percentage, 11 doubles, two triples, four home runs all over the fence, 11 stolen bases and 43 RBIs.

“She is three-sport athlete and has been on the varsity softball team for three years.” Steig said.

Willard got her feet wet as a varsity softball player last season and has been striving to continue to have success as a jun

or.

Last season as a sophomore, "for being young, I played pretty well," Willard said.

As an outfielder, Willard said her speed and her arm have been strengths.

"I feel like I'll be improved a lot in my hitting," Willard said, entering the 2017 season. "Last year I hit OK. This year I can hit better. I should have better technique."

Maddie Morgan, a freshman pitcher, was on the CSAA honorable mention list.
