Two Raider athletes received special recognition during the Foundation for Seminole State College's 27th annual Dream Cup Challenge Golf Tournament, held April 5 at the Heathrow Country Club.
 
Baseball player Jacob Knott and softball player Tara Turner were presented with the 2010 Mack Blythe Outstanding Freshman of the Year Awards due to their exceptional performance on the field and in the classroom.
 
Knott, a reliever for the Raiders, is the Florida Community College Activities Association's (FCCAA) recent Pitcher of the Week. In 19 game appearances and 26.2 innings thrown, the right-hander has held opponents to a .245 batting average and a 3.38 earned run average. He also has managed 35 strikeouts, only seven walks and a team-leading eight saves. Knott, a graduate of Lake Mary High School, maintains a 3.62 GPA and plans to pursue a career in sports marketing.
 
Turner, a first and third baseman for the Raider softball team, is also a graduate of Lake Mary High School. In 40 game appearances for Seminole State, she has notched 172 putouts, 22 assists and a .970 fielding percentage. At the plate, she has a .296 batting average, with 32 hits and 108 at bats. She also has five doubles, one home run and 17 runs batted in. Turner has a 3.58 GPA and plans to pursue a career in education.
 
The Foundation for Seminole State's Dream Cup Challenge is an annual fundraiser for the College and one of Seminole County's premier golf events. The Mack Blythe awards, presented before the tournament kicks off each year, are named for the College's former Business Department chair who founded the golf tournament to raise money for student programs and scholarships.
