FORT MYERS — Two of the Seminole Tribe’s top softball players played against each other Oct. 7 when the Florida Gulf Coast University Eagles hosted the State College of Florida Manatees.
The fall season doubleheader in Fort Myers featured FGCU’s Ahnie Jumper of the Big Cypress Reservation and State College of Florida’s Cheyenne Nunez of the Brighton Reservation.
Jumper, a 2017 American Heritage-Plantation graduate, played third base for the Eagles. Nunez, a 2016 Okeechobee High graduate, played right field for the Manatees. Both players are in their first season with their college teams.
Fall season games don’t count toward the regular season, which will start in the winter.
