For the Coyotes, Meghan Borst had five kills, one block, three aces, 11 digs;\u00a0Alyssa Olds had 11 digs; Jordyn Storch had 11 assists; Sidni Rushford had four kills and four digs; Madelin Mora had a kill and block; Allison Obermeier had two aces and six digs; Alexis Van Eck had two blocks and four digs and Kierra Barker had four digs. \u201cThe kids played really hard,\u201d Reed City coach Don Patterson said. \u201cWe improved all year. A couple of breaks here and there could have made a difference.\u201d On Nov. 1, Reed City volleyball took the first step to redeeming a tough season with a win over Manistee in the district quarterfinals. The Coyotes, who came into the game with only two wins on the season, won after dominating the Chippewas over three sets at 25-6, 25-14 and 25-10. \u201cI thought we played well,\u201d Patterson said. \u201cWe executed our game plan. We changed up a couple things to prepare specifically for them. The kids really executed the plan.\u201d Reed City took control early in the game with a couple of long serving streaks to pull ahead in the first to win by a 19-point margin. \u201cWe didn\u2019t come out quite as strong as I was hoping we would,\u201d Manistee coach April Yates said. \u201cThis game has a lot to do with momentum and we didn\u2019t have that as much as we normally do. They were good with their serve receive and that\u2019s where we usually build momentum.\u201d Manistee was more competitive in the second set by only trailing 16-12, but a 9-2 run put the game away. \u201cWe picked it up a little bit,\u201d Yates said. \u201cYou saw some moments where we did have momentum. We\u2019re a short team so we have to play at 110 percent on every play.\u201d The Chippewas jumped out to a 5-1 lead in the final set before the Coyotes crushed all hope with a 16-point scoring streak to pull ahead. \u201cI thought our serve really pushed them around on what they wanted to do,\u201d Patterson said. \u201cWe didn\u2019t let them get into any type of rhythm and defensively we did a good job of getting the ball back into our setter\u2019s hands.\u201d Reed City hasn\u2019t had much success throughout the season, but one of its three wins came against Big Rapids, who the Coyotes played in the finals \u201cWe\u2019ve been competitive with Big Rapids,\u201d Patterson said prior to the match. \u201cWe beat them real early in the year and haven\u2019t been close with them later in the year. It\u2019s a rivalry game and sometimes records just go out the window.\u201d Patterson was hoping his team continues playing the way they have to potentially turn the season around. \u201cIt doesn\u2019t matter what your record was coming in. It\u2019s about how you\u2019re playing now,\u201d he said. Sportswriter Brian Fogg also contributed to this report.
