Lady Bengals ready for repeat

Saturday the Lady Bengal sophomores will get their rings as 2016 NJCAA Division II softball national champions.
“I hope they stay hungry and want another one.” LSUE head coach Andy Lee said.
“We have won it four times in the last six years and I feel this could be another good year.
“I think they are hungry and I feel they are talented enough to get back (to the world series).”
In 2011, the Lady Bengals won their first national championship and LSUE finished as runners-up in 2012.

The Lady Bengals open the season at the Galveston College Tournament during the last weekend in January.
