REED CITY\u00a0\u2014 Meghan Borst is among the younger players on a Reed City girls basketball team working at making steady progress throughout the 2014-15 season. Borst is a sophomore in her first varsity season. During the summer, Borst was asked to try out with the varsity. \u201cIt was scary, but not too horrible, I guess,\u201d Borst smiled. \u201cI\u2019ve been scrimmaging with them. But I didn\u2019t know for sure. It\u2019s been going pretty good.\u201d The key to making the step to varsity was \u201cbeing confident I could do it,\u201d Borst said. \u201cI\u2019m a post player, so I\u2019m more under the basket.\u201d Getting rebounds and making putbacks have been among Borst\u2019s main roles. \u201cI\u2019m not doing too bad,\u201d he said. \u201cI think I\u2019m doing pretty good. I feel very comfortable.\u201d Boxing out has been a key focus for Borst. She\u2019s been looking to increase her offense. On defense, her role has been to stop her opponent from driving. She\u2019s continuing to work on her shooting and dribbling. Reed City has its game Friday at Tri County in Central State Activities Association (CSAA) Gold Division play. \u201cWe\u2019ve been making a lot of progress,\u201d Borst said. \u201cWe\u2019re playing more as a team.\u201d Continuing to play good defense is critical, Borst said. The Coyotes have been playing without junior Lauren Voelker, who is out for the season with an ACL injury. \u201cWe\u2019ve been pretty comfortable with each other,\u201d she said.
