REED CITY \u2014 Junior Courtney Morgan seems to have found her comfort zone inside the Reed City softball pitching circles. She started the season last week with pitching victories over Big Rapids and Ludington at home. She\u2019s 4-0. Morgan saw action last season but usually behind No. 1 hurler Sam McDonald. \u201cIt was adequate but this year was much better,\u201d Morgan said. \u201cI worked a lot during the offseason and pitched every week. I have more consistency and another pitch I can throw, the curve ball.\u201d The wins over Ludington to open last week gave Morgan a major boost of confidence. \u201cI was surprised at myself,\u201d she said. \u201cI came in, walked the first batter, but I did pull through. Our defense is great. We work hard on our defense.\u201d \u201cI felt she was stronger in the second game,\u201d Reed City coach Roger Steig said after the Ludington twinbill. \u201cBut there\u2019s still plenty for Morgan to work on. \u201cI want to make sure I can hit all my spots,\u201d she said. \u201cOffensively, today was decent,\u201d she said after the Ludington games. \u201cBut I\u2019m hoping I can get much better. We need to make sure we work together.\u201d Tough teams in the Central State Activities Association include Morley Stanwood, not to mention Pine River in the non-league slate, Morgan said.
