The National Fastpitch Coaches Association unveiled its 2016 All-Americans teams on Wednesday and three Florida State players made the list.

FSU didn’t have a first-team selection, but first baseman and ACC Player of the Year, Alex Powers was named to the second team. Powers is hitting .383 with 14 home runs, 59 RBIs and 17 stolen bases.

ACC Pitcher of the Year Jessica Burroughs and third baseman Jessica Warren were named third-team All-Americans by NFCA. Burroughs is 27-5 this season in the circle with a 1.93 ERA. She opened the NCAA Tournament for Florida State by throwing a no-hitter against Florida A&M.

Warren is hitting .383 on the year and leads the Seminoles with 18 home runs and 74 RBIs. Warren has been the biggest reason for FSU’s offensive success to this point in the NCAA Tournament.

The Seminoles will kick off the Women’s College World Series against Georgia at noon EST on Thursday. FSU is the No. 8 national seed while Georgia is seeded 16th nationally.
