CRESTVIEW — Jade Wrathell’s moment of triumph came after three tries: her hallway locker sprang open.

“Yay! I got it!” she said.

“Now come help me open mine,” her friend, former Shoal River Middle School classmate Avery Worstell said.

The girls are among about 500 new freshmen preparing to enter Crestview High School on Aug. 18. The number is down a bit from last year, Principal Dexter Day said.

“We’re excited" about being high school students, Avery said.

“And scared," Jade said.

Despite the girls’ apprehension, senior Carson Hritz said her experience with the class of 2018 is that “they all pretty much know where they’re going.”
