Lindsey Garcia was one of the greatest athletes to play at Coral Springs Charter School.
She spent five seasons on the varsity softball team and won five State Championships. Garcia also went on to win another State Championship in bowling in 2019.
Since then, she has gone on to college, and despite a shortened season, has made a significant impact playing softball for the Auburn Tigers.
“Freshman year was definitely different,” said Garcia. “It all went well, definitely a whole new level. My favorite thing is you learn at least one new thing every single day.”
Garcia made four starts as a freshman and appeared in 19 of the teams 27 games. She had five hits in 19 at-bats and had four of her five hits go for extra bases to help her .526 slugging percentage. She also had an on-base percentage of .391.
Garcia also helped Auburn to a 16-11 record and was also on the 2019-20 First-Year SEC Academic Honor Roll.
“Garcia is an elite athlete,” said her former High School Coach Mark Montimurro. “She has all the tools to be successful in the SEC. When she dedicates herself to something, she always ends up accomplishing the mission.”
In high school, Garcia hit 23 home runs in her career, including 10 in her senior season, when the Panthers won her final state championship. She also went 144-7 in high school and was a 2019 MaxPreps first-team All-American, 2019 Florida Dairy Farmers Miss Softball, and was on the 2019 PGF All-American Watch List.
Garcia is entering her sophomore year at Auburn this year and is continuing to major in biomedical sciences. She should see her playing time increase, even more, this season after getting a much-needed year of experience playing Division I softball.
