Seminole State College of Florida student-athletes continue to set records for their work inside the classroom.

Raider softball players Natalie Beach and Amanda Edelman have been named Academic All-Americans by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). In addition, 20 student-athletes were recognized with all-conference or all-state academic honors.

Beach, a shortstop out of Ridgeview High School in Middleburg, was named a Distinguished Academic All-American — the NJCAA's top scholastic honor — after finishing the 2009-10 academic year with a 3.82 GPA. She received the same designation in 2009.

Beach graduated from Seminole State in May with summa cum laude honors. She will continue her academic and athletic careers at Florida Institute of Technology.

Edelman, a magna cum laude graduate, will continue her studies at the University of Central Florida, where she will pursue a bachelor's degree in nursing.

Both athletes have also been named to the Mid-Florida Conference's (MFC) and the Florida Community College Activities Association's (FCCAA) All-Academic teams. In May, Beach was named the MFC Scholar Athlete of the Year.
