REED CITY — The Central State Activities Association Gold Division honored two Reed City players in its all-league girls basketball team, announced recently.

Emily Libey was named to the first team while Kamryn Myers is on the honorable mention list.

A junior, Libey averaged 11.5 points, 6.4 rebounds,1.47 assists and 2.25 steals a game. Her best games were 17 points against Cadillac, 15 points vs. Grant, 15, vs. Chippewa Hills and 13 vs. Big Rapids.

“Emily Libey is an all-around player who has really improved her defense and rebounding skills,” Reed City coach Brian Koopman said. “Emily is the player everyone tries to stop.”

Myers, a sophomore, averaged 8.6 points, 2.38 rebounds, 2.56 assists and 2.85 steals a game. She had 18 points against White Cloud, 17 vs. Tri County, 15 vs. Fremont, 18 vs. Clare and 13 vs. Grant.

“Kamryn Myers is now our point guard,” Koopman said. “Last year, she was our backup guard to former player Hanna Price, along with being backup shooting guard. This year, she has really improved her game both offensively and defensively.”

Both players return to the Coyote lineup next year, as does junior Alyssa Olds, who averaged 8.0 points, 3.57 rebounds, 2.06 assists and 2.56 steals a game.

Olds had 21 points vs. Grant, 12 and 10 against Tri County and 10 vs. Fremont.

“Alyssa Olds is our all-around player,” Koopman said. “She handles the ball against half- and full-court pressure. She plays the other team’s best player defensively no matter the size. She can play multiple positions. Her stats are down this year due to injuries, making her miss 4 1/2 games.”
