FORT WALTON BEACH—It has been a roller coaster season for the Crestview volleyball team this year.

One match the Bulldogs are flying high and playing like capable of making a run at the playoffs. The next match the Bulldogs struggle to find their rhythm and find themselves barreling to the bottom of the track at breakneck speed.

Crestview coach Kathy Combest was clearly perplexed by her team’s play Tuesday after a four-set District 2-6A loss to Choctawhatchee by the scores of 25-19, 21-25, 25-14, 25-18.

“What happened is we didn’t play and you have to play every ball and every point,” she said. “We’ve got girls that aren’t mentally tough enough. They are handling it bad or handling it good.

“You have to stay consistent and I thought Choctaw did a very good job of doing that tonight.”

From the outset of the match it was clear the Indians (4-6, 2-4) were determined to defend their home floor and be the more consistent team.

A Taylor Brown kill on the first point of the match set the tone for things to come as Choctaw pounded the nets and battled for every loose ball in a match that was tight throughout the night.
