Gilbertson led the ACC with 37 strikeouts looking, 91.1 innings pitched and tied for most games started at 14. He also tied for third with only 11 walks allowed, tied for fourth with eight wins and tied for fifth with 87 strikeouts.

Corcoran led the ACC with the least walks allowed with just eight this season. He finished in sixth in innings pitched at 80.2 and tied for sixth with seven wins. Corcoran also earned ACC Pitcher of the Week on April 25, after his performance against Miami on April 24. Against the Hurricanes he struck out eight batters and only gave up one walk and one run in eight innings.

Gilberston and Corcoran ranked first and fifth, respectively in innings per game, with Gilbertson averaging 6.52 innings and Corcoran averaging 6.21 innings. Corcoran and Gilbertson also lead the ACC in walks allowed per game, with Corcoran in first at 0.89 and Gilbetson in second at 1.08.
