Softball's Hope Bitzer named All-American

Hope Bitzer

Seminole State College softball standout Hope Bitzer has been named a First-Team All-American by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) and the National Fastpitch Coaches Association (NFCA).

During the 2010 season, the sophomore pitcher from Longwood went 28-8 on the mound and held opponents to a 0.98 earned run average (ERA). She also struck out 261 batters and was named the Mid-Florida Conference's (MFC) Female Athlete of the Year.

Statewide, Bitzer finished the season ranked first in wins for pitching, third in strikeouts and fourth in ERA. Nationally, she was third in wins, eighth in strikeouts and 13th in ERA.

The Lake Mary High School graduate has received several additional accolades for her performance, including Florida Community College Activities Association (FCCAA) Softball Player of the Year; First-Team NFCA South Region; First-Team All-FCCAA; First-Team All-MFC; and Atlantic District All-Tournament. She also was twice-named the FCCAA's Softball Pitcher of the Week.

Bitzer, who was selected as a Third-Team All-American in 2009, is only the second Seminole State athlete to earn First-Team All-American honors from the NJCAA. The first Raider to accomplish the feat was first baseman Sherri Rabenold in 2005.

Bitzer will play for Rollins College in the fall.
