Raiders freshman named statewide softball player of the week

Kate Kelly

With less than a month left until the postseason, Seminole State College of Florida’s Raiders softball team has received its first individual statewide honor.

Kate Kelly, of Cape Coral, was recognized as the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region 8/Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) Softball Player of the Week for March 21-27. She earned the honor thanks to strong offensive output at the plate and savvy base-running.

In four games against Mid-Florida Conference (MFC) rivals, the freshman center fielder, a graduate of North Fort Myers High School, batted .643 (9-for-14) with three runs scored, two RBIs and three stolen bases. She had at least one hit in all four games, including two games with three hits each. She went 4-for-7 at the plate in a doubleheader at Lake-Sumter State College on March 22, and on March 24 she went 5-for-7 in a home doubleheader against Florida State College-Jacksonville.

On the season, Kelly is No. 2 for Seminole State in batting average (.395) and No. 3 in on-base percentage (.429). She leads the Raiders with 147 appearances at the plate, which have led to 33 runs scored and a team-leading 58 hits. She also has 37 stolen bases, good for No. 4 in the state.

As a team, Seminole State (33-16, 12-6 MFC) went 4-0 during that week’s games. The wins positioned the Raiders at the No. 2 slot in the MFC, just ahead of Daytona State College. The Raiders will be back in action at home this Saturday as they take on MFC-leading College of Central Florida.

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