CRESTLINE — The Crestline Lady Bulldogs basketball team had a rough go throughout the 2015-2016 season, finishing winless at 0-23 overall. New head coach Aaron Bluey looks to help spark a much-needed turnaround for the Lady Bulldogs during this year’s campaign. Bluey has just one other year of head coaching experience but has more than 10 years experience at the varsity assistant and junior varsity coaching levels at different schools.

While not having much access to last year’s statistics or any key players lost, coach Bluey does look forward to the return of junior Lydia Tadda, and will rely on seniors Deneesa Baker and Sarah Toy to provide needed leadership.

A long road awaits, but coach Bluey remains optimistic.

“I don’t want my girls trying to force the game and I want us to understand what is in front of us and how to attack every situation with the abilities we have,” he said. “Our biggest strength is that these girls are very coachable, they want to learn and just be the best that they can be.”
