CRESTVIEW — Kathy Combest, entering her third season as Crestview High School’s volleyball coach, believes the Bulldogs could make the playoffs for the first time since 2004.

"We are getting close," she said. "That's my goal ...”

Combest — who has been working hard to get the team to the playoffs — thinks the only thing standing between the Bulldogs and the playoffs is a matter of the players believing they can win.

In the meantime, the girls are getting stronger.

"They are stronger because of the time they've spent in the weight room,” Combest said. “The weight room has changed their bodies. They hit the ball so much harder and they jump higher."

A Crestview team of juniors and seniors welcomes freshmen Marisa Rogers and Kierra Potts, whom Combest thinks could have an immediate impact on the team.

"We have two freshmen that are doing an excellent job for us," she said. "Normally you don't have that in a freshman, but you do with these two."
