Florida State softball plays conference opponent UNC this weekend in a battle of undefeated ACC squads
Former Florida State softball standout Robin Ahrberg begins her first season as the team's volunteer assistant, handling a myriad of duties. Ahrberg will provide special instruction to Florida State's group of catchers while supervising the rest of the team. Ahrberg will play a key role in video breakdown and analysis for scouting purposes, and also has an administrative focus as a liaison between the softball squad and both the marketing and sports information departments.
Ahrberg played at her alma mater from 2007-11, enjoying a fine career with the Garnet and Gold. The former catcher and first baseman holds career totals of a .289 batting average, 233 games played, 117 RBIs, 13 home runs and 28 doubles. She currently holds Top 10 school records in three categories at Florida State and earned several academic, community service and athletic honors in her five-year stay.
Ahrberg was the recipient of the Doc Fauls Award at the 2011 Golden Nole banquet, an honor she earned after recovering from offseason shoulder surgery in 2009 and producing two of her best years in the following seasons. The Stillwater, Okla. native was known as a true team leader who brought the best out of the program with her gritty style of play on the field. In her senior year, she recorded two home runs in an important rubber game victory over N.C. State despite battling a nagging knee injury. Ahrberg also homered in the team's ACC title game victory over North Carolina in 2011.
Following her senior season, Ahrberg was named the Co-Coaches Award winner for her inspiring play and positive attitude. In 2010, her first season following season-ending surgery, Ahrberg was named an ACC All-Tournament Team selection and finished with a career-best 33 RBIs.
As a student-athlete at Florida State, Ahrberg was a two-time Seminole Softball Leadership Council member. She was also a two-time Student Athlete Advisory Committee member and twice was named an All-ACC Academic Softball Team selection. Ahrberg was named to the ACC Academic Honor Roll three times, and was an ESPN The Magazine First Team Academic All-District selection in 2008.
