Tampa Prep girls soccer coach Cindy Schofield will be inducted into the Florida State University Athletics Hall of Fame in September.
Schofield, who played for the Seminoles from 1999-2002, was the first two-time all-Atlantic Coast Conference selection in Florida State history. She set more than 31 school records, including becoming the first Seminole to ever record 100 points in a career, score 40 goals and take 200 shots.
Her induction ceremony will take place on Sept. 13 and she will also be recognized prior to Florida State’s football game against Nevada on Sept. 14. Schofield is the first soccer player to be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
"I can’t believe it," Schofield said in an e-mail. "I am so excited - what an honor!"
Schofield has been head coach of Tampa Prep’s powerhouse soccer program for the past four years, compiling a record of 64-17-9, winning district championships in each season and advancing to the state tournament twice.
She was also a high school star at Lakeland Jenkins, becoming Florida’s all-time leader in goals (238) and second in the nation in career goals. Her high school jersey – No. 11 – was retired.
