REED CITY \u2014 Jules Griffin has one year of softball under her belt as a Reed City varsity pitcher and can\u2019t wait for her sophomore season to start next spring. Griffin is coming off a busy summer in which she pitched for Reed City in a Mount Pleasant League and also performed for a Diamonds team out of Grand Rapids. She pitched and played outfield for both teams. \u201cI feel I got a lot of improvement from summer ball,\u201d Griffin said. \u201cYou meet a lot of people when you play on a travel team like (Diamond). I built a lot of relationships along with improving my game.\u201d On pitching, Griffin worked on her changeups and on other pitches to get more movement and speed on the ball. Griffin is playing volleyball this fall and will play on a Reed City team in the Grand Rapids leagues. She mentioned that her freshman season on the varsity last spring \u201cwas little rough with ups and downs. It was my first experience on varsity. It was a little different. Overall, it helped me improve a lot. \u201cMy hitting was very rough during the spring time. I worked on it a lot this summer and it\u2019s gotten better.\u201d Her offseason work \u201cwill help a lot next spring,\u201d Griffin said.
