Lead Story

The future of Florida State softball is in good hands.

On Monday, FSU announced an extension that will keep head coach Lonni Alameda under contract through the 2029 season. According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Alameda will earn more than $5.6 million in guaranteed cash.

The contract also features incentives and more than $2 million in facilities upgrades. Entering her 15th season, Alameda holds a 667-189-3 record at FSU. She’s led the Seminoles to ACC titles in seven of the last eight completed seasons.

In 2018, Alameda coached FSU to its first national championship as a fastpitch program. While winning 78% of her games at FSU, Alameda also has more than 800 career wins as a head coach, dating back to her time at UNLV. FSU finished 54-7 this past season and attained its highest national seed ever at No. 2.
