Reed city senior optimistic about future


REED CITY — Kayla Davis is one of the many seniors on a Reed City volleyball team that is looking for a strong second-half of the season.

Wednesday night, the Coyotes are home against Newaygo in Central State Activities Association action.

It’s Davis’ second year of varsity. She started the sport in seventh grade. She was on the 2012 team that went to the regional semifinals. Davis focused on serving.

During the offseason, “I did all the summer stuff,” Davis said. “I came to everything I could.”

She’s playing an outside hitter this season.

“I feel I’m doing pretty good this year, much better than last year,” Davis said, noting that as a hitter, she’s been looking to put the ball in spots where it can’t be reached by the opponents or hit it too hard to be returned. “So far I’ve been all right. I’m getting better.”

She’s looking to improve on her passing. Davis added that her serving has improved “a little bit. I’m getting it to a good spot where their bad passers are or where there isn’t a passer.”

The team “is working extremely well together,” Davis said. “We all get along really well.”

Beating Big Rapids has been among the highlights. But Davis and the Coyotes are looking to finish strong as they did a year ago.v
