Crissy Buck enters her ninth season as an assistant coach at Oregon State.

Buck helped lead Oregon State to its first ever appearance in the NCAA Women's College World Series during the 2006 season and earn a program-best No. 5 national ranking as well as reel off a 28-game winning streak. No stranger to the WCWS stage as a student-athlete at UCLA, the Bruins held an 11-4 record in World Series games during Buck's playing career.

During the 2005 campaign, Buck helped lead Oregon State to its first ever Pac-10 championship. She and the rest of the Beaver coaching staff were honored as the 2005 Speedline/NFCA Pacifc Region Coaching Staff of the Year.

A 2002 graduate of UCLA, Buck was a four-year starter and letterwinner for the Bruin softball team. A versatile athlete, Buck saw action in both the infield and the outfield.

Buck started every game at shortstop for the 1999 NCAA Champion Bruins and belted the game-winning home run against DePaul in the opening contest of the 1999 Women's College World Series.

Buck finished her UCLA career with a .245 batting average, 125 hits and 73 runs scored. In her four seasons of competition (1999-2002), the Bruins amassed a record of 226-32-1.

Buck ranks in a tie for first place in the UCLA single season record book with 69 games played during the 1999 campaign.

A native of Las Vegas, Nev., Buck received a degree in history from UCLA in 2002.
