After entering the portal earlier in the month, slugger Katie Dack has made her new school clear. Announced by Dack on Monday, she’s transferring from Texas A&M to be a Florida State Seminole in 2023.
I’m so excited and honored to announce my commitment to Florida State Softball, where I will continue my education and softball career! So thankful for this opportunity! @FSU_Softball @Coach_Alameda @FSU_CoachWilson @TCam_FSUSB @KaleighRafter @CoachElCooper pic.twitter.com/1Kntm7uOLZ— Katie Dack (@KatieDack17) September 27, 2022
Coming out of high school in Colorado, Dack was a highly talented recruit. As a freshman for the Aggies, Dack started 43 games and appeared in 57. In those game she saw playing time at three spots, left field, designated player and catcher.
She was pointed on D1Softball’s list of 75 impact freshmen coming into the 2022 season. The ALL SEC second team honoree posted a .303 batting average with 119 at bats, 25 runs, 36 hits, 6 doubles, 13 homeruns and 40 RBI.
As the two time SEC player of the week, Dack will enter the Florida State program with three years of eligibility remaining. She will also add depth to the catching position, after 2022 freshman Katie Bright was not listed on the upcoming roster for the Seminoles.
