NAVARRE — After a three-year absence from coach basketball, Crestview girls basketball coach Kathy Combest said she didn’t feel any nerves for herself, but rather some anxiousness her team before the Bulldogs took the court against Navarre on Monday.

Combest, who has coached the Bulldog volleyball team the last two years, stepped down as the Baker girls coach after 13 years prior to the 2009 season with a 175 wins to her credit.

The layoff didn’t seem to bother Combest a bit as she was in mid-season form on opening night directing the Bulldogs to a 69-56 win over the Raiders. 

Ironically, Combest’s firsr win as the Bulldog volleyball coach also came at the expense of Navarre.

Combest downplayed her return to the bench as she focused on the job ahead for the Bulldogs.

“I just try do what I can, when I can, as much as I can,” she said. “We’ve got a lot of stuff to work on. We are not very deep (on the roster, but we are trying to teach the girls that are on the bench to come in and not give up too much.
