Less than three weeks into the 2014 season, the Seminole State College of Florida Raider softball team has received its first individual statewide honor.
Stephanie Adkins, of Orlando, was recognized as the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region 8/Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) Softball Pitcher of the Week for Feb. 10-16. She earned the honor for savvy pitching backed up by a stingy Raider defense.
In four appearances during the week, the freshman right-hander, a graduate of Timber Creek High School, earned two complete-game victories – Feb. 11 against Polk State and Feb. 14 at Palm Beach State – and one seventh-inning save. Over the course of 19.2 total innings, Adkins struck out 13 batters and walked only three. She maintained a perfect 0.00 ERA, allowing just 12 hits and six unearned runs.
As a team, the Lady Raiders (8-5) went 4-2 during last week’s games. They will be back in action at home Friday and Saturday for consecutive doubleheaders against Hillsborough Community College and State College of Florida.
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.
