The Seminole State College Athletics Department honored its outstanding student-athletes during an end-of-the-year banquet on April 22.

Sophomore Priscilla Gonzalez, of Miami, who made the move this year between first base and the outfield, earned the distinction of Female Athlete of the Year. Second-year shortstop Angelo Amendolare, of New Smyrna Beach, was named Male Athlete of the Year.

One of the Lady Raiders’ best offensive options, Gonzalez amassed a .394 batting average throughout the 2013 spring season en route to becoming the softball team’s RBI leader.

For the Raider baseball team, leadoff batter Amendolare, who last year was a second-team all-conference athlete, was a top offensive producer as well this season, leading the team in steals while batting .368 and sporting an on-base percentage of .428.

Both athletes have signed letters of intent to continue their athletic careers at four-year institutions, Gonzalez at Rollins College and Amendolare at Jacksonville University.

Additional awards were presented in three categories for each sport: Most Valuable Player, Most Improved Player and Coaches' Choice. The honorees were:

Baseball

  • Most Valuable Player: Connor Marabell
  • Most Improved Player: Kyle Andre
  • Coaches' Choice: Justin Russell

Softball

  • Most Valuable Player: Priscilla Gonzalez
  • Most Improved Player: Alyssa Bastin
  • Coaches' Choice: Elizabeth Eby

Women's Golf

  • Most Valuable Player: Chanya “Phon” Angwarawong
  • Most Improved Player: Joanna Yoo
  • Coaches' Choice: Stormy Staton

The baseball and softball teams each had one player this season receive Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) Player of the Week honors. Outfielder John Gandolfo was named Player of the Week for March 11-17, and infielder Andrea Monayarji received the distinction for April 15-21.

Thanks to the contributions of all the award winners, as well as the efforts put in by each player, all three of Seminole State’s spring sports teams will make appearances in the postseason in May.
