REED CITY\u00a0\u2014 Brittani Yarger would have preferred playing volleyball this week for the Reed City Coyotes in the state finals. But the season ended earlier than desired for Reed City with a district finals loss to Chippewa Hills. Yarger was in her senior volleyball campaign for the Coyotes and will now get ready for the spring softball season. For the most part, Yarger was a serving specialist for Reed City. It was her second year varsity season. In the district loss to Chippewa Hills, \u201cwe got off to a bad start,\u201d Yarger said. \u201cWe were hitting right into the block.\u201d The Coyotes lost the first two games and took the first one to 34-32 before losing. Reed City was second in the Central State Activities Association during the regular season. \u201cThe season went really good,\u201d Yarger said. \u201cWe worked together for a long time and played together. There\u2019s a lot of seniors that started.\u201d She was happy with her serving season. \u201cIn the beginning, my serve wasn\u2019t as good as last year,\u201d Yarger said. \u201cCoach helped me change it and at the end, I wasn\u2019t missing any serves.\u201d Yarger said she worked on her lift. \u201cIt helps in getting the ball over instead of having it too high or low and hitting the ball into the net or out of bounds,\u201d Yarger said. \u201cIt went right where I wanted it.\u201d Her best match was against Central Montcalm. \u201cThat was the first game where we didn\u2019t miss any serves and we actually won by a lot,\u201d Yarger said. Hitting workouts for softball and warmups will be starting soon, she added. Yarger will be among the team\u2019s top returning players.
