REED CITY\u00a0\u2014 Sarah Emington provides critical experience the Reed City girls soccer team will look to utilize in a major way this season. Emington, a senior, will be at either wing or striker this season, the same positions she played last year. This is her second full varsity season. She scored three times last spring for a squad that struggled to put the ball into the net at times. Emington is hoping to help lead an improved Reed City scoring attack. \u201cWe\u2019ll need more if we want to have a successful season,\u201d Emington said. \u201cOver the summer, my sister and I practiced some.\u201d The Coyotes finished four weeks of preseason practice last week and are on spring break this week. Their opportunity to get outdoors has been limited and two games that had been scheduled prior to break were snowed out. \u201cWe finally got to go outside so that was nice,\u201d she said. \u201cIt\u2019s so much different than from being in the gym.\u201d In her position, Emington will be looking to score goals \u201cand to get back to help on defense when we need it,\u201d she said. \u201cDefinitely, I\u2019d say we\u2019ve improved quite a bit (from last season).\u201d Emington considers herself, compared to last season as \u201cmore experienced, knowing where to put it and coming up with plays right on the spot.\u201d The Coyotes are scheduled to open at Newaygo April 16 and play home April 17 against Hart. \u201cWe all get along really well,\u201d Emington said. \u201cIt\u2019s almost like a family environment. That will help us a lot.\u201d Getting off to a good start this season will be critical for the Coyotes, plus \u201ccommunicating so we can get shots on goal,\u201d Emington added.
