Leblanc lands on the second team, joining the cast of nine ACC individuals to make the squads.

The shortstop from Laval, Quebec has started in all but one game on the season, posting an average of .423, good for 19th in the country and fourth in the ACC. In addition, he boasts an on-base percentage of .500 and a slugging percentage of .536.

In his 24 starts, Leblanc has gone 41-of-97 with six doubles, three triples and one home run, bringing around a total of 29 runs, scoring 25 of his own. He’d drawn 14 walks and is a perfect 4-for-4 in stolen bases.

Last week, Leblanc was named the ACC Player of the Week following a three-game series against Clemson and a mid-week win over Kent State. In those four games, Leblanc hit an outstanding .647 (11-of-17) with 12 RBI, including a six-RBI performance in a 15-5 win over then 24th-ranked Clemson.

A former Canadian Junior National Team member, Leblanc is batting .334 (98-of-293) on his short career, with 59 RBIs and 56 runs scored. Leblanc is just one RBI away from his 2015 season total (30) and 16 hits away from his 2015 total (57).

Leblanc and the Panthers will welcome ACC rival Georgia Tech to Charles L. Cost Field this weekend for a three-game series. All three games can be seen live on ESPN3.
