pon entering the 2011 NJCAA Division II Softball Championship Tournament, top-seeded LSU Eunice wanted to prove to the nation they were without question the best team in 2011. Mission accomplished. The Lady Bengals, in just their second ever appearance at the national tournament, won the 2011 Division II national championship with an impressive 10-0 win over Owens Community College (Ohio) in the title game at Champion Fields in Normal, Ill. Owens entered the tournament as the No. 4 seed. The national title is the first for LSU Eunice in a women’s sport. Even more impressive is the fact that the Lady Bengal softball program is still in its infancy, having been launched in 2005. In a rematch with Owens (44-5), who the Lady Bengals defeated 6-0 in the third round of the tournament, LSU Eunice (55-10) jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning off a Haley McCall double and then added runs in the second and third innings before tacking on three insurance runs in the sixth inning.

Tina Schultz pitched a shutout and McCall was 3-for-4 for the Lady Bengals. Schultz was named the Most Outstanding Pitcher of the tourney going 4-0 in the circle with a 1.48 ERA. McCall earned Most Valuable Player honors via a .667 batting average, which was tied for the tournament’s top mark and new record.

She also had eight RBI’s and a .944 slugging percentage. McCall also set a new tournament record with 10 runs scored, which led to LSU Eunice setting a new team mark of 49 runs scored in the tournament.

t came down to the top two seeds in the NJCAA Division II softball World Series on May 19, 2012 in the championship finals. No. 1 LSUE, who won the first four games of the tournament including a 3-2 win over No.2 Phoenix College on Friday, needed to win just one game to capture their second national title in a row. Instead, the Lady Bears won 5-1, 2-1 to win

their ninth championship. Kesley Hollier was the tournament Defensive MVP, while Tina Schulz, Jaci Trahan and Brooke Thomas were named to the all-tournament team. In the first game, Phoenix jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning of the opener when Cheyenne Adams and Krystal Garcia hit back-to-

back triples both scored before the Lady Bengal defense stiffened to end the surge. LSUE threatened in the top of the second when Ashley Taylor and Logan Fuselier both walked but Taylor was tagged out at home attempting to score to end the inning. The Lady Bengals threatened again in the top of the fifth when Thomas, Ort and Tina Schulz all singled to load the bases but none advanced as the Phoenix defense stiffened. Pam Wainwright was hit by a pitch with two outs in the top of the sixth and she was the last Lady Bengal to reach base in the first of the two finals. The second game saw Phoenix jump out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the second when Rachel Meyer singled and Desirea Gil blasted a home run. LSUE closed the gap to 2-1 in the top of the third when Jaci Trahan singled and later stole home when Brooke Thomas reached and stole second. After the Lady Bengals pulled within one run, LSUE did not get another hitter to reach base as they went down in order the rest of the game.
