FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – FEBRUARY 27, 2022

EUNICE, La. – It was a day to remember for Bryce LaRocca as the sophomore helped pace LSU Eunice to a Sunday sweep of Jefferson College at Bengal Stadium.  The Bengals (14-2) host the Vikings for a pair of doubleheaders to kick off seven-game homestand.

After battling injuries for the first few weeks of the season, LaRocca came to life in the Bengals’ doubleheader with Jefferson College.  Entering the day with only 3 RBIs on the season, the Barbe High product nearly quadrupled that total in a day with 11 RBIs in LSUE’s two wins. 

The sophomore drove in three runs in the Bengals 11-6 opening win, then blasting a pair of home runs and totaling 8 RBIs in LSUE’s 18-8 mercy rule win in eight innings.  The eight RBIs were the most for a Bengal in nearly a decade, last done by Tyler Chapman on February 16, 2013.

LSUE will take on Jefferson College for a Lundi Gras twinbill on Monday starting at 1:00PM.
