FSW’s Laudino sets longest hit streak in college softball history
In the back end of FSW’s Saturday double header against Hillsborough Community College, Freshman second baseman Rebeca Laudino failed to get a hit. The last time this ever happened to Laudino in her college career — never. That’s right, the Sao Paoulo, Brazil native began her career with a 49-game hit streak.
With that personal milestone, Laudino also set the record for longest hit streak in the history of college softball at all levels.
“I feel great. I don’t have words to explain it,” Laudino said. “As leadoff of the team, my goal is to get on every time. So I try to do whatever I can, whether it’s bunting, hitting or slapping to get on. And I have my team.”
Laudino also doubles as a math tutor for her schoolmates.
During the game where Laudino’s personal hit streak ended, while also setting college softball record, she ended up scoring a walk-off run to move the FSW Bucs to 49-1 on the year.
Bucs softball is currently the No. 1 ranked NJCAA team in the nation.
