PRIOR TO FSU:

Blankenship is ranked 5th by Extra Inning Softball in the 2021 class rankings…two time 2A State Champion with Academy at the Lakes (2018-19)…2A Florida Player of the Year as a freshman…three time First Team All-State…three time Greater Tampa Bay Times All-State…USA Today Preseason All-American.

WHY I CHOSE FSU:

“When I was nine I attended the Super Regional and watched Florida State comeback and beat Michigan twice to move on to the Women’s College World Series. When Courtney Senas hit that homerun and the stands erupted, I knew I wanted to be part of that environment. It motivated me as an athlete to work hard. When I went to my first camp when I was 13, my love for FSU had only grown. While I had multiple offers, Florida State always felt like it was meant to be my home. I can’t wait to live my dream wearing garnet and gold.”
