“It’s always tough as the volleyball season comes to a close, but these girls have accomplished so much this season and created so many friendships and memories,” Crestview head coach Tammy Gregory said. “This group has continuously worked hard, pushed one another and supported each other on and off the court. I was pleased with our teams’s effort tonight as they never gave up, but just wasn’t enough as Fort Recovery played well in all aspects of the game with a dominating offensive attack.”

Crestview finished 16-7 overall.
