Crestview Bulldogs Bufkin, Pase announce college choices

Bufkin thought about pursuing varsity softball at the college level, but is happy to play club softball.

"I don't care where I play," she said. "I just want to play."

Pase has only played beach volleyball a short time, but she quickly developed a passion for the game.

"I started playing beach volleyball a couple of years ago and I love it," she said. "You get touches every time. It's a lot more relaxed.

"I love indoor volleyball, don't get me wrong, but I love being on the beach. The University of North Florida has a great program. They've got conference championships and they've got a great academic program."

Pase said there are different challenges with beach volleyball as opposed to the six-person game played on a hard court.

"The sand is a lot harder to move in and you only have two people as opposed to six on one court," she said. "You have to be able to read (the ball) fast and move fast. And jumping higher is a lot harder on the sand too."
