CRESTVIEW — A tenacious Class 1A Freeport High School volleyball team was no match for Class 7A Crestview on Monday as the teams celebrated Breast Cancer Awareness Night.

However, the visiting Bulldogs did keep things interesting for the host Bulldogs as Crestview won 3-0 by scores of 25-19, 25-12 and 25-17.

Crestview coach Kathy Combest knew there was a danger in playing a small school, but she was happy with a win that gave the Bulldogs a chance to work on their offense.

“It’s hard to play smaller teams because you want to play down to their level,” she said. “But I thought there were times there we kept going and didn’t lose focus, and that’s what we have to work on against the big teams, too.”

A six-day layoff between matches for Crestview seemed to show early in the first set as the players struggled to find their timing.

Crestview led 3-1 in the opening points of the match but Freeport rallied behind the serving of Laura Ham and Crestview mistakes to go up 7-4.

A Jasmine Middleton kill that was followed by a Marisa Rogers service ace propelled Crestview to a 7-0 run that moved the host Bulldogs in front 11-7.
