Athletic Director's Message

Trent Kreischer What a 2018 fall season we had in Knightland!  Our boys’ and girls’ cross country teams were once again competing to be among the best in northwest Ohio.  The boys' team finished third in the Northwest Conference and Wyatt Richardson was All-NWC and All-District, qualifying for the regional meet in Tiffin.  Then the girls’ team exhibited the “grit and guts” that it takes to be a Knight by not only placing third in the NWC, but also qualifying for the state meet by placing 8th in the regional meet in Tiffin.  The ladies outlasted many other top teams in miserable weather conditions.  Individually, Emily Greulach earned All-District recognition.  Also, Ragen Harting (All-NWC, All-District, All-Region) finished 61st in the OHSAA state meet and earned Academic All-Ohio honors.

The Volleyball team exceeded expectations in 2018 capturing a share of the NWC Championship and a 17-7 record.  This NWC crown is Crestview’s 19th (the next school has only eight). Also, for her integral part in that success, Coach Tammy Gregory was named NWC coach of the year. Congrats girls and Coach Gregory!

Finally, the fall meant a historic season for Crestview Football.  The team earned a third NWC title along the way to a school-record sixth straight playoff birth.  In the playoffs, the Knights hosted a regional quarterfinal game defeating Miami Valley Christian Academy.  In the regional semifinals, the Knights were once again matched against the Minster Wildcats, the defending D VII state champions.  This time Crestview would be victorious, avenging last season’s defeat.  However, the Knights would be defeated in the regional final game by Fort Loramie.  The gridiron Knights finished the season with 11 wins, the most in school history, and a regional runner-up trophy.  The seniors in the class of 2019 ended their careers taking the program to new heights, finishing with a record of 34-15 and 2 regional runner-up trophies in their four years!

Now, winter has come, and the hoops teams are off to great starts this season!  As I have stated previously, all of this isn’t possible without the coaches and other adults behind the scenes.  I want to take this opportunity to thank all of the event managers that have worked to run sporting events this winter and fall- Tyler Stevens, Mimi Myers, Cindy Tinnel, Nick Leeth, Shay Sheets, Owen Pugh, and Heather Baker.  I also want to recognize the Crestview Athletic’s staff of Greg Rickard, Owen Pugh, and Sherri Springer.  Their work fires the “engine” of Crestview Athletics.  Lastly, thank you to those of you who have joined the Knight Pride Club.  Specifically, I would like to thank our officers- Brad Perrot (President), Terika Miller (VP), Shay Sheet (Secretary), and Sarah Dealey (Treasurer). These individuals have sacrificed their time and energy in support of our student-athletes. Unfortunately, many of them will be ending their terms in the spring of 2019.  Filling these spots is VITAL to the club and Crestview Athletics.  I urge anyone interested in serving to contact the athletic department.  I look forward to interacting with many of you at upcoming sporting events!  It’s my philosophy that WE all make Crestview Athletics a success.  #WEARECRESTVIEW
