BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Rain has caused the Eastern Florida State College softball team’s season to come to an end.
The softball team placed third in the Southern Conference after a doubleheader win against Miami Dade. It ended up being the final two games of the season for the Titans.
The five sophomores have left their mark on the program over the past couple of seasons at Eastern Florida State College.
On the mound, Trinity Howard and Mandy Hedetniemi-Taylor leave as some of the best strikeout pitchers the program has had in the past decade.
In two seasons, Hedetniemi-Taylor has struck out 248 hitters including 125 this season.
She had a 14-strikeout game last season and finishes her Titans career with a 2.08 ERA over 57 appearances and has 37 complete games, 22 wins, and made 48 starts.
