Several Seminoles softball players will participate in the summer collegiate softball league in South-West Florida — Kaia LoPreste, Brooke Blankenship, Chloe Culp, Hallie Wacaser, and Krystina Hartley.
FSU tight end Camm McDonald felt inspired and shared some thoughts on the softball team’s run:
Florida State women’s golf’s longest ever run in the NCAA Championship tournament came to an end as the Seminoles fell, 3-2, to Texas A&M in the quarterfinals of match play at the championship finals at the Grayhawk Golf Club. The Seminoles advanced to match play for the first time in school history and finished in a tie for fifth place in the final national standings – the highest NCAA Championship finish in school history.
Congratulations on a great season for @FSUGolf and @CoachBondFSU! You all represent this department, university and the Seminole nation in a first class manner at all times.— Michael Alford (@SeminoleAlford) May 24, 2022
Florida State women’s tennis athletes Petra Hule and Anna Arkadianou bowed out of the NCAA Doubles Championship on Tuesday night, falling to Janice Tjen and Savannah Broadus of Pepperdine, 2-6, 3-6, in Champaign, Ill.

Arkadianou, just a sophomore, has a chance to anchor next year’s team as she gained valuable experience on FSU’s No. 1 doubles tandem while being a No. 2/3 player in singles play.
