SANFORD, Florida - Coach Courtney Miller announced the Spring schedule for the Seminole State Softball team.  The schedule includes 14 home dates, a tournament at Boombah Soldiers Creek Park and the FCSAA State/NJCAA Region 8 Tournament in May.

Coach Miller, 33 wins short of the 1000 win milestone, and the Raiders are coming off the most successful regular season in school history. The only Mid Florida Conference title and 53 wins made for a lot of nice memories, but that was last year. Replacing Pitching Ace Melanie Murphy (Florida Tech) and the bat of Alyssa "Bear" Oakes (UCF) will be a challenge.  Sophomore Pitcher Kyra Gipson will look to be the lead in the circle. Aimee Oglesby and Megan Sexton will bring the bats.

The home opener is on Friday, February 9 at 2 p.m. vs. Polk State College (DH).


  • Admission for regular season games is $5 for Adults, $3 for Youth (12&Under). Season Tickets are $30. All can be purchased at the gate.
