   Kaitlyn Romaine and Micah Tew extend their collegiate careers by signing athletic scholarships to four-year colleges. Romaine signed with Webber International University and Tew committed to Columbia (S.C.) College.

   During her two years pitching for the Seahawks, Romaine started 33 of her 37 appearances, worked  194 innings, posted 21 complete games and struck out 92 batters. As a freshman, Romaine was selected second team all-Southern Conference after leading the Seahawks in appearances (16), starts (14), innings pitched (88) complete games (nine), victories (four) and strikeouts (47). Last season, Romaine also played second base and made 110 plate appearances, registering team-highs in triples (two), sacrifice bunts (six), sacrifice flies (one) and finishing second in doubles (four).

   Throughout her two seasons at Broward, Tew pitched a combined 65 and two-third innings, appeared in 22 games, posted two complete games and struck out 10 batters. Tew’s sophomore season was hampered with injuries, limiting her to only eight appearances with a total of 18 and one-third innings pitched. Her finest performance came during her freshman season when she helped the Seahawks defeat Miami Dade College 4-3 on April 3 at Judson A. Samuels South Campus.  Tew tossed a complete game, scattering seven hits, three runs (one earned), walked two and struck out two. Miami Dade went on to finish ninth in the final NJCAA poll.



   Sophomore first baseman Monica Palacio concluded  her career as a Seahawk by topping the team in batting average (.306), slugging percentage (.378), on-base percentage (.353), hits (34), runs batted in (16), doubles (five), home runs (one), total bases (42), at bats (111) and tied Alexis Zackey in runs (nine).  Palacio also led in fielding percentage (.969), chances (289) and putouts (268).

   Miranda Maddox finished first in walks (18) and Zackey led in stolen bases (seven). Shelby Gatto was first in total plate appearances (121) and threw out a team-high seven base stealers. Brittany Overstreet and Michaela Metcalfe finished tied for first in hit-by-pitches (two) and Metcalfe topped all fielders in assists with 82.

   Kaitlyn Romaine led in triples (two), sacrifice bunts (six), sacrifice flies (one), innings pitched (106), strikeouts (45), appearances (21) and starts (19).
