The LSU Eunice softball team won three consecutive elimination games on Saturday to capture the NJCAA Region 23 Championship and clinch a spot in next week's NJCAA National Tournament.
The wins gave the Lady Bengals (57-5) their third consecutive Region 23 title.
"These girls fought. They wanted it. We are banged up and tired, but we showed our heart and a lot of character and I am extremely proud of those girls," head coach Andy Lee said.
"We need a little rest, we've played six games in three days. This was a challenge today. We have to win three elimination games and we did it," Lee added.
Lee was named Region 23 Coach of the Year after the game as well.
LSU Eunice won an early morning game over Pearl River Community College by an 8-0 score to earn a spot in the national tournament, as the top two Region 23 teams qualify.
However, LSU Eunice had unfinished business to settle with Jones County Junior College, who sent the Lady Bengals to the losers bracket on Friday night.
A 6-0 win in their first game of the day against Jones forced one final game, before LSU Eunice 10-4 victory to grab the regional title.
Over the three games on Saturday, the Lady Bengals connected for five home runs, including two in the championship game from Brooke Clark and two more from Ashley Subervielle. Emily Nolan added a homer of her own, a massive three-run shot against Pearl River that started the day's scoring.
For the three day tournament, the Lady Bengals connected on 13 total home runs, including five from Clark (8 total RBI), three from Nolan (5 total RBI), two from Kelsey Hollier (5 total RBI), two from Subervielle (3 total RBI), and one from Taylor Simon (1 RBI).
Exactly half of their 44 runs in the tournament (22) came off of home runs.
LSU Eunice now waits to see where they will be seeded in the national tournament, who their opening opponent will be and what time their game will be when they begin play on Wednesday.
