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.”
