DOTY COMMITS TO FAMU
Gainesville, FL – Britany Doty, a Tallahassee native and standout starting right fielder for the Saints, will attend and play for Florida A&M University beginning this Fall, SF Head Coach Chris Ahern announced today.
“Britany did a great job for us on the field this year, stepping her game up even more from last season,” said Ahern. “We are excited for her opportunity at FAMU.”
Doty hit .371 on the season, with 15 doubles, two triples, six homeruns and 42 RBI in 54 games played this season, improving her batting average over .100 from the year before, earning First Team Mid-Florida Conference honors and was Second Team FCCAA All-State.
She was not only successful on the field, but also in the classroom, earning FCCAA All-State and Mid-Florida Conference Academic Team honors in both of her years at Santa Fe.
Doty will join a FAMU team that finished the 2010 season with a 17-14 overall record and a 7-5 mark in the NCAA Division I Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. The Rattlers, led by Veronica Wiggins in her 19th year as the head coach, won the MEAC in 2009 and competed in an NCAA Regional at the University of Florida.
“We are so proud that Britany has done so well here at Santa Fe,” said Ahern. “She graduated having had an amazing academic and athletic career here. She is a true success story, and we will miss her. We know that she will be an outstanding addition to the Rattlers’ team, and that she will continue to perform both on and off the field. Britany is to be congratulated on her performances both on the field and in the classroom.”
