  • Round 4: Raiders battle Miami Dade for 10 innings but ultimately fall 7-6.
  • Round 5: Raiders lose to the Sharks again, this time 8-1. Seminole State is eliminated from the FCCAA tournament and will not advance to the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I Softball Championship.
