CHS Principal: Softball is Crestview High Athletics' missing link

Currently the school has openings for certified teachers in English, math and the culinary arts.

“We want somebody that is committed to the program just like all our other coaches,” Day said. “We need someone with a passion for that softball program because it’s a sleeping giant. We had a guy bite on it and you know what he listed first?

“All of his football coaching accolades. I don’t need a football coach to coach softball. I need a softball coach to coach softball.”

Day said he’d take the softball job himself if not restricted by his position as principal.

Title IX

Forty years ago, Congress passed a law requiring equal opportunities for women in college athletics. In recent years, Title IX has filtered down to the high school level.

Day’s daughters, Lauren and Hannah, were both athletes at Crestview. Lauren ran track and cross country and Hannah was a standout on the volleyball and softball teams before settling into softball her senior year.
