Susan Painter was one of the finest players in the history of Lady Seminole softball. Her career spanned Florida State's move from their highly successful stint in slow-pitch softball to the current fast pitch game.

A letter-winner from 1981-84, Painter led Florida State to a 197-33-2 record and two slow pitch national championships during her four seasons. The Plantation, Floida native was the starting pitcher for the Lady Seminoles for three seasons and then switched to first base for her senior year when the program went to fast pitch. Setting the groundwork for an outstanding career, Painter went 31-4 and batted .455 with 39 RBIs as a rookie. She earned All-American honors and was named Most Valuable Player of the 1982 National Championship team. A co-captain in 1983, she earned FAIAW All-State first team honors for the third straight year and was selected to the AIAW National All-Championship Team for the second time in her career. She was also named to the numerous all-tournament and regional teams throughout her career.
