Junior was an impact player for SBVC from the very beginning, in her freshman year (2009-2010) she nailed a three pointer to close out a first round playoff game at home versus Palomar. She was named first team All-Foothill Conference both years at SBVC. She had a season high 21 points, against L.A. Pierce in the first round of the Ventura Holiday Classic on December 28, 2010.

That victory came at the expense of Conference rival Mt. San Jacinto on January 5th. Crebbin was also awarded the Conference Coach of the Year honor after the 2007-2008 season as well, and for a significant portion of the season, SBVC Women's Basketball was ranked number one in the CCCWBCA poll, holding that ranking for four weeks from January 3 till January 31.
