An honor well-deserved.

Florida State Seminoles softball coach Lonni Alameda, who has shaped the FSU program into one of the nation’s best, will be inducted into the NFCA Hall of Fame.

Alameda has led the Seminoles since 2009, amassing a record of 716–198–2 (.783) and has built an impressive record that includes 15 NCAA Tournament appearances, 9 ACC Tournament Championships, 7 ACC Regular Season Championships and 5 Women’s College World Series appearances — winning in 2018 and finishing as runner-ups in 2021 and 2023.

Alameda will join Seminoles legend JoAnne Graf as the only two Florida State head coaches to be inducted into the NFCA Hall Of Fame.

Over her time at Florida State, Alameda has won 6 ACC Coach of The Year awards, and has 716 wins and counting. FSU has played in the NCAA postseason every year under Alameda — one of only nine schools to participate in the NCAA Tournament in every season since 2000.

She also won a gold medal as pitching coach of the 2020 Canadian Olympic softball squad.

She will be joined by Carol Bruggerman (NFCA), Kim Wilson (Rowan University), and John Byrne, (Moravian University) in this 2023 Hall of Fame Class.

Florida State is asking fans to help put together a scrapbook to celebrate the accomplishment:

This can include a personal note, pictures, quotes, or anything that you want to share with her about her impact on you. Please keep pages to 8.5x11 size but you may send more than one sheet.

All submissions will be bound together and turned into a book for coacha.

If you are local you can make arrangements to drop submissions by the softball office or if you are out of town you can also mail your submissions to:Lonni Alameda HOF1119 Spirit WayTallahassee, FL 32304

Congratulations Coach Alameda, you are very much admired and appreciated by the players, fans, and supporters of the Florida State University Softball team.
