Baseball player earns Pitcher of the Week honors

Justus Labigang

For the third time this year, a Seminole State College of Florida athlete has earned statewide honors for outstanding achievement on the field.

Freshman Raider pitcher Justus Labigang was named the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region 8/Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) Baseball Pitcher of the Week for April 14-20.

The right-hander, originally from Fort Pierce, went 1-0 with a strong performance in his one appearance during the voting period. He led the Raiders to a gritty 2-1 victory over College of Central Florida. He allowed just one earned run, and he struck out 11 batters while walking just one.

As a team, the Raiders (22-16-1, 12-9 Mid-Florida Conference) went 2-1 during the voting period. Seminole State lost in 10 innings at Santa Fe College April 14, and then earned wins against Florida State College-Jacksonville and at College of Central Florida.

On the season, Labigang holds a record of 6-3 with an ERA of 3.02. He has recorded 62 strikeouts against only 19 walks in 80.1 innings, including five complete games.

Labigang is the second baseball player and the third Raider overall to be honored this spring by the FCSAA. Freshman softball pitcher Stephanie Adkins was named Pitcher of the Week for Feb. 10-16 for two complete-game victories and a seventh-inning save, and freshman baseball shortstop Edwin Bonilla was named Player of the Week March 4-10 for outstanding offensive production.

The Raiders will be back in action at home Saturday, April 26, as they take on St. Johns River State College in their final home game of the season.

All Raider home events are free to Seminole State students, faculty and staff with a valid Blue & Gold Card, the Seminole State ID. Admission is also available to the general public for a small fee.
