LSUE trio named All-Region

In a repeat of last year, the LSUE Lady Bengals finished second in Region 23 tournament but then grabbed the NJCAA Division II national championship over Jones County Junior College.
Stormy weather prevented the two teams from playing for the Region 23 title, so No. 1 JCJC entered the national tournament as the higher seeded team.
The No. 4 Lady Bengals responded with a 5-0 run through the world series including a walk-off 8-7 win over Jones to earn its fifth title in program history.

Bobcats begin Metro league play

The Eunice Bobcats scored eight runs in the first four innings to take an 8-2 win over Sacred Heart in Metro League action Monday evening at Bobcat Field.
