To say that Florida State was well-represented on the All-ACC Softball would be a grand understatement.

On the day the ACC Tournament gets underway, the conference released its awards and all-conference teams. The Seminoles took home four of the five awards and held six of the 15 spots on the All-ACC first team.

Power-hitting third baseman Jessica Warren, a junior, took home the honors as ACC Player of the Year and ACC Defensive Player of the Year. Warren is hitting .438 this season with 20 home runs and 63 RBIs.

Jessica Burroughs, a redshirt senior, was named ACC Pitcher of the Year for the second year in a row, becoming only the third player to accomplish that feat. Burroughs is 23-4 with a 1.08 ERA and 233 strikeouts in 168 innings. Both Warren and Burroughs were named finalists for the USA Softball Player of the Year Award on Wednesday.

FSU head coach Lonni Alameda was named the ACC Coach of the Year for a fifth straight season. The only individual award that didn’t go to FSU was ACC Rookie of the Year, which went to North Carolina’s Brittany Pickett.

In addition to Burroughs and Warren, outfielder Morgan Klaevemann, pitcher Meghan King, catcher Sydney Broderick and last season’s ACC Player of the Year, Alex Powers, were all named to the conference’s first team. Broderick, Powers and Klaevemann all have batting averages of at least .347 while King is 24-2 with a 1.49 ERA on the mound.

Sophomore shortstop Cali Harrod was named to the All-ACC second team. Outfielder Dani Morgan earned a spot on the conference’s all-freshman team.

The Seminoles finished the regular season with a record of 48-6-1 and will open the ACC Tournament on Thursday against Virginia. Click here to view the full All-ACC team.
