Reed City then fell 25-18, 21-25, 15-13 to Harbor Springs and 25-7, 25-12 to West Holland. The Coyotes closed the day with a 25-20, 25-14 loss to Shelby.

“I thought we played a little nervous but we’re playing some really good teams,” Reed City coach Don Patterson said.

“We’re got some things to work on. The first day out, we’re playing with a freshman setter. There were a lot of nerves for their first match. But I will work a lot with them. They’re very good listeners.”

Emington and Storch are the setters for Reed City.

Reed City is at the Cadillac Invitational on Thursday. The first home match is Sept. 9 against new Central State Activities Association foe Tri County. After that, the Coyotes are at McBain Sept. 11 and at the Pine River Invitational Sept. 13.
