With the start of the 2018 ACC Tournament just one day away, the conference unveiled its All-ACC team on Monday. In total, five different Florida State players saw their names on an all-conference team.

Making the first team were catcher Cal Raleigh and starting pitcher Drew Parrish. Georgia Tech and NC State led the ACC with four total first-team selections.

Raleigh, a junior, leads the Seminoles with a .330 average. Raleigh also has 12 home runs, which ranks second on the team, and a team-best 48 RBIs and a .586 slugging percentage.

With Tyler Holton on the shelf, Parrish, a sophomore lefty, has been the ace of the staff and is 4-0 this season. He leads the team with a 2.52 ERA, 89 1/3 innings pitched and 107 strikeouts. Opponents are hitting just .194 off the sophomore.

FSU third baseman Drew Mendoza and outfielder Jackson Lueck each earned third-team honors.

The sophomore Mendoza is batting .311 this season with six home runs and 38 RBIs. Lueck has watched his average drop to .245 as a junior this season, but leads the Seminoles with 14 home runs and 44 runs scored. His 44 RBIs ranked second only to Raleigh.

Pitcher C.J. Van Eyk was named to the All-ACC Freshman team. This season, the right-hander is a perfect 6-0 with a 2.88 ERA and 61 strikeouts in 50 innings of work.
