Crestview Bulldogs Bufkin, Pase announce college choices

Crestview girls basketball and volleyball Coach Kathy Combest expects big things from her now former players.

"She's very aggressive and athletic," Combest said in describing Pase. "She's into the game all the time. Whether it was practice or a game she was ready.

"She's right at 5-11, but she's so smart. Sand, it's not always tall, it's always placement and she places the ball well in sand."

Combest said she's amazed at what Bufkin has accomplished in the classroom.

"She made a perfect score on her ACT," she said. "All of our girls smart, but none have gone this far in academic. A kid that is that disciplined on her own to do grades and the things that aren't fun, it makes it easier when she does what she likes to do.

"She always sets the bar high. I feel like Kristen is always going to reach it (the goal) whether you set it or she sets it. Kristen is always going to be an overachiever in her life."
