Greater Pensacola Seminole Club

Emeritus Alumni Society Luncheon


Join us on Friday, August 13 at the Pensacola Yacht Club for a luncheon honoring our Emeritus Alumni! Reunite with fellow Noles and hear from FSU Softball Head Coach, Lonni Alameda.

Entering her 14th season as the head coach of the Florida State softball program in 2022, Lonni Alameda has guided the Seminoles back into one of the nation’s best teams. After seven Women’s College World Series appearances from 1987-2004, the Seminoles have returned to the final site of women’s collegiate softball four times in the last seven complete seasons (2014, 2016, 2018 and 2021), including winning the program’s first NCAA National Championship in 2018, a WCWS Finals appearance in 2021, a WCWS semifinals appearance in 2016, as well as eight consecutive trips to the NCAA Super Regionals (2013-19, 2021). Florida State had earned seven ACC regular season/division titles in a row and six straight ACC Tournament titles heading into the 2021 season and now owns 17 ACC Championships.


FSU has played in the NCAA postseason every year under Alameda and is one of only nine schools to participate in the NCAA Tournament in every season since 2000. Since Alameda has made Tallahassee her home, she has led the Seminoles to 10 ACC Championship game appearances in 12 full seasons, with titles in 2011, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

An all-around great athlete, Alameda began her collegiate career as a pitcher at St. Mary’s University (San Antonio, Texas) where she led the Rattlers to the NAIA Tournament in her only season. She later transferred to Oklahoma in 1989 and played softball and volleyball for the Sooners. She was a two-time All-Big Eight selection as a first and third baseman while hitting .359 as a senior in 1992.

Alameda earned her bachelor’s degree in communications from Oklahoma in 1993 and played softball professionally in Europe for a season before beginning her coaching career.

The social begins at 11:30 a.m. followed by lunch at noon. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions. There will be a cash bar available. RSVP by Friday, August 6.
