REED CITY\u00a0\u2014 It\u2019s been a productive summer for Meghan Borst. The Reed City volleyball senior and her teammates ended summer workouts on Friday in the high school gym. The focus was on hitting. She attended most of the summer sessions and said it\u2019s been helpful. \u201cI\u2019ve worked on my hitting a lot,\u201d Borst said. \u201cIt\u2019s more consistent and harder. I\u2019m ready, I\u2019m excited.\u201d Summer volleyball also gives players like Borst a chance to be more familiar with other players. \u201cYou get to know their strengths,\u201d she said. Borst spent the first part of the summer with the basketball team. Volleyball practices start on Aug. 10. \u201cWe have two seniors and quite a few returning juniors,\u201d Borst said. \u201cI\u2019ve been working on my passing, too. You have to stay low.\u201d Summer practices sometimes focused on one skill at various sessions such as ball control and hitting. It\u2019s a format Borst said she liked. During a match, \u201cit brings everything together,\u201d Borst said.
