Reed City senior ready for the football season


REED CITY — Paige Lofquist is gearing up for Reed City’s football season in her final sport as a coyote.

But Lofquist can also look back fondly on a solid basketball season in which the Coyotes showed tremendous progress.

One of the highlights was a five-game winning streak in the middle of the schedule and a 41-31 win at Big Rapids.

I think we played really well,” Lofquist said after the game. “We were very calm and we worked well on our zone. Everything fell into place.

Any victory is nice, but Lofquist admitted that beating his rivals was especially nice. It was Lofquist’s third year in college. It was his first victory against Big Rapids.

The key behind the five-game winning streak was “team cohesion and we all get along and we all love each other,” Lofquist said. “A key has been team chemistry and being very good on our defensive side.”

Lofquist focused on ball handling for the Coyotes and was able to handle the pressure all over the court.

“Some games we struggled with that, but most games when we figured it out we’re able to start,” she said. “We have to be able to play with confidence and get our shots right.”

Lofquist ran cross country and played football, but said basketball was his favorite sport.
