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.

LSUE’s Doucet, Monson named All-Americans

LSU Eunice standouts Mima Doucet and Madison Monson have been named first-team All-Americans for NJCAA Division II by the National Fastpitch Coaches Association.
The infielders were two of the thirty-two student athletes from 17 different institutions to garner the All-American accolades.
“I can’t think of two more deserved players for the award than Mima and Madison,” LSU Eunice head coach Andy Lee said. “They were so important to our success and put in so much work both on and off the field.”

Bengals hold awards night celebration

The annual LSU Eunice baseball awards night had an added level of excitement as the Bengals celebrated its national championship.
“It is hard to believe that a small two-year institution located in rural southwest Louisiana would be the home of the six-time NJCAA Division II baseball champions,” LSUE chancellor Kimberly Russell said.
“We have won more baseball national championships than any other team in the country.
“We are celebrating winners tonight,” she added. “They are winners in the classroom, on the field and in life.”
