REED CITY — It’s been a productive summer for Meghan Borst.

The Reed City volleyball senior and her teammates ended summer workouts on Friday in the high school gym. The focus was on hitting. She attended most of the summer sessions and said it’s been helpful.

“I’ve worked on my hitting a lot,” Borst said. “It’s more consistent and harder. I’m ready, I’m excited.”

Summer volleyball also gives players like Borst a chance to be more familiar with other players.

“You get to know their strengths,” she said.

Borst spent the first part of the summer with the basketball team.

Volleyball practices start on Aug. 10.

“We have two seniors and quite a few returning juniors,” Borst said. “I’ve been working on my passing, too. You have to stay low.”

Summer practices sometimes focused on one skill at various sessions such as ball control and hitting. It’s a format Borst said she liked.

During a match, “it brings everything together,” Borst said.
