REED CITY — Reed City was slated to start its volleyball season this weekend at Ludington, and coach Don Patterson was anxious to see how his young team would perform.

“Its a good fit for us,” Patterson said. “We’ll see Ludington, which will be in the same district this year.”

Reed City has eight girls on varsity. The first home match is on Sept. 5 with Evart.

Demi Lodholtz will be among the Coyotes’ top players.

She played as a freshman last season.

“It went good,” Lodholtz said. “I did pretty good, I think. It will be more fast-paced.”

She went to a summer camp in 2018 and knew at that time she probably be on varsity.

“I was excited,” she said. “I was comfortable with it. I had been playing AAU volleyball.”

Lodholtz will again be a middle hitter.

“I hit it hard,” she said. “I want my serves to be more consistent. Last year I had a lot of aces. But a lot of my serves went out.”

The Coyotes have no juniors, just seniors and sophomores,” Lodholtz said.

“We have two new setters,” she said.
