Crestview girls open season with win

That would be as close as the Raiders would get as Malia Gandy and Simms scored for Crestview in the final minute of the third quarter to push the Bulldog lead back to 51-46 heading into the final period of play.

The Bulldogs extended the run to 10 points in the first 95 seconds of the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach.

Combest was glad to see that the Bulldogs didn’t give in to the Navarre rally in the third quarter.

“I’m most pleased with them not giving up and that’s what we’ve got to change at Crestview High School – not to give up, no matter what,” she said. “I thought when they caught up with us we went right back at them and that’s something I’m wanting to see more of.”

Simms and Jensis Coleman led Crestview in scoring with 17 points each. York added 14 points, Malia Gandy 12 points and Shantae Gandy eight points.

Nadia Fingall and Hannah Worden shared scoring honors for Navarre with 10 points.

The Crestview girls are sponsoring a Military Appreciation Night on Monday when they host Tate. Any active or retired members of the military will get free admission to the game by showing their military ID. Game time Monday is 7 p.m. for the varsity and 5:30 p.m. for the junior varsity.
