GREENSBORO, N.C. – Florida State, co-champions of the Atlantic Division in the ACC and seeded No. 5 in the upcoming conference baseball Championship in Greensboro, N.C., placed two student-athletes on this year’s All-ACC first and second teams as announced on Monday, May 24 by the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Tyler Holt (OF) and Mike McGee (UT) represented the Seminoles on this year’s All-Conference teams as both landed a spot on the All-ACC first time marking the 17th consecutive season that Florida State has at had at least one student-athlete named to the league’s first team.
For the second year in a row, Holt has been named a first team All-ACC honoree. The junior from Gainesville, Fla., has started all 55 games for the Seminoles in center field this year and has started every game since arriving on campus in 2008, a streak of 186 consecutive starts – the longest active streak in the nation. Holt hit .341 during the regular season including .342 in conference play. He registered 71 hits, including 18 doubles and three triples, and drove in 40 runs. Holt established a season-high recording 11 home runs, while ranking among the league leaders in runs (71), walks (47) and stolen bases (26). He has also turned in another stellar defensive effort in centerfield posting a .992 fielding percentage committing just one error in 129 chances. Holt becomes the 11th Seminole to be recognized twice as a first team All-ACC honoree.
McGee was named to the first team as a utility player for his outstanding effort as a two-way player for the Seminoles in 2010. The junior played in all 55 games during the regular season making 51 starts in left field, two as a designated hitter and one on the mound. McGee finished the regular season ranked third on the team in hitting with a .332 average. He led the team in RBI with 60 while tying Holt for the team lead in home runs with 11. The Port St. Lucie, Fla., native tallied 66 hits with 11 doubles and one triple, while scoring 50 runs.
On the mound, McGee has stepped in nicely as the Seminole closer posting a 4-0 record with nine saves and a 0.43 ERA. The right hander has registered 21.0 innings in 14 appearances allowing just two runs, one earned, while posting 25 strikeouts. McGee has given up only seven hits and is holding opponents to a .103 average. In his first and only start of the season back on March 8 at Jacksonville, McGee no-hit the Dolphins over 6.0 innings. Eight of his nine saves have come in league play as he ranks tied for second in the ACC in that category. McGee was named a second team All-ACC honoree as a sophomore.
