REED CITY — Kamryn Myers, as a three-sport athlete, is keeping busy this summer with basketball and other sports.

But she’s coming off a solid softball season when the Coyotes won their second straight district title.

As for her season, “I think it could be better,” Myers said late in the year.

She was a junior in her third varsity softball season.

“I think it could be better,” Myers said. “Overall, it think it was pretty good. I’m hitting the ball pretty good.”

Myers usually batted left and had a dangerous bat for the Coyotes.

“I’ve hit a couple of triples,” she said. “I’ve hit some doubles.”

For the Coyotes during the season, Myers would usually play shortstop the first game and catch the second. Of the two options, she considers catching her best position. Her arm and blocking have been strengths.

Myers, was lead-off hitter, with 42 runs scored, nine doubles, three triples, 17 stolen bases, 20 RBIs, .355 batting average, .546 on base percentage, .479 slugging percentage, and .904 fielding average. She was on the all-CSAA and all-district teams.

The key to having success throughout the season and in districts, Myers said, would be “not making stupid errors.”

The Coyotes were able to accomplish that and go on to the regionals where they lost in the first round.

Myers will be among the key returning players for next year’s team.
