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.”

Bengal celebrate championship

ENID, Oklahoma – It will be remembered in Bengal baseball history as Slate Fuller belted a two-out walk-off home run to deliver No. 1 LSU Eunice a thrilling 5-3 win over Parkland College to win the NJCAA Division II National Championship.
It was the Bengals' sixth national crown, the most in NJCAA Division II history.
LSUE has won 11 national titles in 13 seasons as an athletic program including every year since 2010.
The Lady Bengal softball team won NJCAA Division II championships in 2011, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017.
