CHS Principal: Softball is Crestview High Athletics' missing link

For the most part, Day is pleased with his coaching staff across the board, but he says one team still struggles to find the right coach to provide stability and build a winner.

Softball dilemma

“I’m sitting here pulling the rest of my hair out because nobody wants to step up and take this job and is qualified,” Day said. I’m not talking about just any Joe off the street. I’m talking about somebody that knows softball and is committed to a year-round program.

“I’m not just talking about during the season. I’m talking about someone that will work during the summer and getting these girls involved in some kind of travel ball and playing tournaments in the summer. That’s going to get them the exposure for college because they are going to come see them.”

When Crestview becomes competitive in softball, the school will have a grade A athletic program, Day said.

Softball coach qualifications

The ideal softball coach can teach at Crestview High School as well as coach the team, Day said.
