Raider athlete named national player of the week

Kristie Hoeffer

Seminole State College sophomore Kristie Hoeffer has been named the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division I Softball Player of the Week for March 5-11. She earned the honor based on her peerless efforts and remarkable offensive contributions in the Raiders’ three games last week.

The award honors the top student-athlete in the nation based on exceptional performance and execution on the field of play. Hoeffer is Seminole State’s first-ever national player of the week.

In three games, the Gloucester, Va., native batted .818 (9-for-11), including four doubles, three home runs – one of which was a grand slam – and nine RBIs while also scoring seven runs herself. She had a 2.00 slugging percentage, and she boasted three hits and a home run in each game.

The Raiders (24-12-1, 2-1 Mid-Florida Conference) went 2-1 as a team last week against Santa Fe State College and Lake-Sumter Community College, with one game suspended due to weather.

Hoeffer also was named the Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) Softball Player of the Week as the top student-athlete in the state.

This honor acts as validation of Hoeffer’s tremendous athletic career at Seminole State. She is currently No. 1 in the state in doubles (17) and No. 7 in runs scored (34). Defensively, she holds a fielding percentage of .980.

Last season, Hoeffer finished ranked No. 4 in the state in both hits (83) and runs scored (42) while also contributing 21 doubles, four home runs and 23 stolen bases.

The Raiders, currently ranked No. 9 in the state, will be back in action March 15 in Daytona Beach. Their next home game will take place March 24 in a doubleheader against Florida State College at Jacksonville.

All Raider 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.
