With three returning players from a season ago in pitcher Natalie Sayre, the only senior on the team, along with two juniors in Kelsey and McKenzie Ronk, the Crestline softball team which finished at 17-15 overall, winning a Division IV district title last season is hoping to get back near the top of the NCC after finishing last season at 6-7 in conference play. 

Coach Ron Shumate who enters his seventh season as the head coach, feels every team in the area is going to have to put in more work during the season's off days than usual because of the weather leading up to the start of the season.  With only three returners from last season, coach Shumate is hoping he can build a team around his senior pitcher Sayre, who threw a no-hitter in the team's regional semifinal but lost 1-0, to Our Lady of the Elms out of Akron on an error scoring an unearned run.   Since 2003, Crestline has won seven district championships and made four final four appearances winning a state title in 2004.

Crestline is scheduled to open the regular season on Saturday, weather permitting, with a double header against Northmor on the road.
