REED CITY – Reed City’s boys track team has some impressive numbers this season also some talented performers including senior Dylan Schebil.

Schebil has  basically been a thrower. Last season he had a personal record of 40-3 in a home CSAA quad. He was fifth in the CSAA Gold championship meet at home. His personal record in the discus was 91-4 12.

It’s his fourth high school season track.

“Last year I did well in the shot put,” he said. He placed eighth in the regional meet in the shot put.

Schebil said the shot put is his best event. Technique is the key to having success in both throws, he added.

“I don’t think I have any set goals for distance but I want to make it to state,” he said.

Don Patterson is the throws coach. Schebil said Reed City will have others in the throws but isn’t sure how many points the Coyotes will be able to post. He also runs in the 100 and 200 sprints and he hopes to score points in those events.

“I’m good in the middle,” he said. “I think I usually work out best in the middle. I need to work on my start.”

The Coyotes will have more than 30 boys on the roster and Schebil is confident the team can do very well.

He also played football and basketball for Reed City and indicated he might go to Ferris. Track should keep him in excellent shape, he said.

The Coyotes will hope to be a CSAA contender and will host various home events including an invitational on April 30.
