For the second time this year, a Seminole State College of Florida athlete has been honored as the statewide National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region 8/Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) Player of the Week.
Thanks largely to the offensive output of infielder Andrea Monayarji, the Lady Raiders softball team (31-24) secured a berth in the FCSAA State Tournament following two consecutive doubleheader sweeps to close out its Mid-Florida Conference slate.
The sophomore first baseman was named Player of the Week for April 15-21 for her outstanding contributions on the field in doubleheaders against St. Johns River State College (April 16) and Lake-Sumter State College (April 18). She batted .583 (7-for-12) for the week, including 6-for-8 in two games against Lake-Sumter. She scored three runs, knocked three doubles and drove in six RBIs for the Raiders.
Against Lake-Sumter, sophomore Monayarji, a native of Providence, R.I., contributed two doubles and four RBIs to help Seminole State eke out a 6-5 victory.
Monayarji and baseball outfielder John Gandolfo have won FCSAA Player of the Week honors this season.
The Lady Raiders have two more nonconference doubleheaders left this season – at home against Polk State College (April 25) and away against St. Petersburg College (April 27) – before they head to the FCSAA State Tournament in Pensacola on May 3.
All Raider home events are free to Seminole State students, faculty and staff with a valid Blue & Gold Card, the Seminole State ID. Admission is also available to the general public for a small fee.
