Two Seminole State College student-athletes have been named All-Americans by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).
Women's golfer Elia Folch Sola and baseball player Todd Hankins were recognized for their accomplishments during the 2010-11 season.
Folch Sola, a freshman from Barcelona, Spain, earned Second Team All-American honors after finishing sixth at nationals and leading the Raiders to a fourth-place team finish. In March, she outperformed 92 golfers to win the Sunshine Spring Classic and take the Raiders to a second-place finish.
Hankins, a sophomore and second baseman from Oviedo, received Honorable Mention after recording 88 putouts, 113 assists and a .953 fielding percentage on the season. At the plate, he had a .393 batting average, with 72 hits, 12 doubles, five triples, nine home runs and 40 RBIs.
Hankins, the Mid-Florida Conference's (MFC) Player of the Year and a First Team selection by the MFC and the Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA), was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 15th round of the MLB First-year Player Draft. He has been assigned to the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, the Indian's Class A affiliate in Ohio.
Folch Sola, named Raider golf's 2010-11 Most Valuable Player, will return to Seminole State for her sophomore season.
