Crystal Bustos

It is safe to say that Crystal Bustos might be the most successful former-NJCAA athlete in the organization's history. She has twice led USA Softball to Olympic Gold (2000, 2004) as well as Silver (2008). During her first Olympic Games in Sydney (2000) she led Team USA with 10 hits, three home runs and five runs scored. Four years later at the Olympic Games in Athens (2004) she belted five home runs and knocked in 10 RBI. At Beijing in 2008, she led Team USA and set a new Olympic record with six home runs and tied her previous record of 10 RBI. She also led her team with a 1.318 slugging percentage, while batting .500 for the Olympics.

Since being selected to the team in 1999, she has also helped lead Team USA to three Gold finishes at the Pan Am Games and two Gold medals at the Softball World Cup. 

Prior to her success with USA Softball, Bustos was setting records at Palm Beach Community College in Florida. She was twice named NJCAA Softball Player of the Year in 1996 and '97 and led the Panthers to the NJCAA Softball Championship in 1996. During her two-year NJCAA career, Bustos posted a .614 batting average, amassed 138 hits, 23 home runs and 102 RBI. In 2004, she was elected to the NJCAA Softball Hall of Fame.
