CRESTVIEW — Better day will likely come for the Crestview High School volleyball team. But a week into the 2014 the Bulldogs are struggling.

Crestview fell to 1-2 on the season Thursday night with a four set loss to Walton. The Braves won by scores of 25-20, 20-25, 28-26, 25-17.

Bulldog Coach Kathy Combest was frustrated with the loss.

“We are a young team,” she said. “We lost six seniors, but we need to play better. We need to make better decisions.

“I thought our decision making skills were better than that. They (Walton) picked up a lot of balls. They are the experienced team and we are not, but we are going to get there.”

Powered by the play of Ashley Harper and Deja Tucker the Braves seemed to take control of the first set with with a 5-1 run to break an 8-8 tie.

Walton was up 15-11 when a Cailey Ness block sparked Crestview and the Bulldogs went on to tie the set a 15-15.
