CRESTVIEW — Indications suggest the inaugural Bulldog Bash Summer Classic was a smashing success.

Six varsity high school volleyball teams and three junior varsity teams descended upon Crestview High School and Davidson Middle School gyms for one last warm-up before practice starts Aug. 5.

Florida High School Athletic Association rules prohibit awarding trophies at a tournament this close to the season’s start. But if a championship trophy could have been awarded in the round robin tournament, it would have gone to the host Bulldogs.

Boost for the Bulldogs

Crestview's varsity finished the day with a perfect 5-0 record. Along the way, the Bulldogs beat Mosley (21-25, 25-15, 15-10), Navarre (25-21, 25-20), Choctawhatchee (25-21, 19-25, 15-9), Samson, Ala., (25-7, 25-3) and a team of home school players (25-21, 25-15).

Crestview hitter Brittany Pase believes the tournament sweep will give the Bulldogs a boost to start the season.

"It gives us a sense of confidence," she said. "We played Mosley, which was a great game. We hadn't beaten them in a long time, but we beat them.
