Crestview's Day shines for Raiders

Day is just as happy to be at Northwest Florida State as Byerly is to have her.

"It's been a great experience," she said. "I love my team. I love playing with them. They are a great group of girls, and I know we can go far with them. They just have the heart — it's all there.”

Day said it helps that former Crestview teammate Shelby Gainer is on the team, along with former Fort Walton Beach High School rivals Jenn Phillips and Jaime Phillips.

Considering her options

Even after putting stellar numbers for Crestview in the tough District 2-6A, Day wasn't sure how well she would do when she took the step up in competition.

"I didn't know I'd come out and do this well my first year," she said. "I was a little nervous when he (Byerly) put me in the three spot (in the batting order). I'm getting a more comfortable there, and it feels good.

"I've never had the experience like catching conference doubleheaders before ... It's a learning process, and I do like my coach tells me — and I love it."
