LSUE Bengals get a hometown hurrah

The LSUE baseball and softball teams were recognized for their successful seasons at Tuesday’s Eunice Board of Aldermen’s meeting.
Jeff Willis, athletic director and head baseball coach, said he appreciated the city’s support that included escorts in and out of Eunice by police, marshals and firefighters.
The baseball team won its sixth NJCAA Division II national title. The softball team finished fourth in Division II and has won five national titles.
“It is very exciting to see young people that have a goal at hand then reach that goal,” Willis said.

LSUE’s Doucet earns first-team All-American honor

Mima Doucet continues to pile on the postseason awards as the sophomore has been named to the NJCAA All-American first-team, the association announced Wednesday. It’s the second All-American recognition for Doucet this year.
Doucet was named to the NFCA NJCAA Division II First-Team earlier this month alongside teammate Madison Monson. The Lafayette native was one of 39 recipients to be honored by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA).

Hester receives NJCAA first-team All-American nod

After one of the most dominating single seasons on the mound in LSU Eunice history, Zach Hester has earned All-American honors. Hester was given first-team honors by the NJCAA, the association announced on Monday.
The sophomore is the tenth Bengal to earn a first-team nomination and just the second pitcher, joining LSU Eunice Hall of Fame member Kenny Plaisance. Hester joins the 18 other former Bengals to be named a NJCAA All-American and first since Nick Coomes and Zach LaFleur in 2016.

Bengal baseball hits summer league tour

With the excitement of capturing the program's sixth NJCAA National Championship still fresh in their minds, several LSU Eunice baseball players are back in action in summer collegiate leagues throughout the country.
Incoming, current and outgoing LSU Eunice players are spread out over eight different summer leagues.
Many of those organizations use wooden bats instead of aluminum for gameplay.

LSUE releases soccer schedules

The build-up towards the start of the LSU Eunice soccer programs continues with the release of their fall schedules.
The men's team will have a 12-game schedule while the women's squad is scheduled for a 14-game slate.
Both Bengal squads will play in a total of 11 doubleheaders, including a pair of exhibitions.
LSUE will head to LSU Alexandria to open the season in an Aug. 11 doubleheader set for 3 p.m.
In addition to joint exhibitions at East Texas Baptist University on Aug.21, the men's team will host Louisiana College in an Aug. 18 tune-up.
