April 29, 2018 Championship Kind of Sunday for the Centenary Diamond Gents SHREVEPORT, La. - Prior to the 2018 season, banners were put up on the outfield wall of Shehee Stadium to honor the Diamond Gents and their recent Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference championships. It did not take long for another one to be needed. In a winner-take-all series finale with the #1 ranked team in the nation, the Gents rallied from an early 2-0 deficit to score nine of the last 10 runs of the ballgame as Centenary (24-14, 15-3 SCAC) knocked off Trinity (33-7, 14-4 SCAC) 9-3 on Sunday afternoon, April 29. The win gave Centenary its third SCAC Regular Season Championship in the last four seasons.
May 20, 2017 Centenary Gents Season Comes to a Close with 13-4 Loss to Concordia TYLER, Texas – The Gents gave up three runs in the bottom of the first and could not recover as Centenary’s (35-10) season came to an end with a 13-4 loss to Concordia (30-17) in an elimination game in the Division III Baseball Regional in Tyler, Texas. The 35 wins for the Gents were the second-most for a single season and most since Centenary tallied 40 wins in the 1990 season.
May 19, 2017 Big Inning Drops Centenary Gents to Cal Lutheran in Winner’s Bracket Semifinal, 8-2 TYLER, Texas – Junior Cole Lavergne sailed through the first four innings, but an error and two-out hits helped the Kingsmen score five runs in the fifth as third-seeded Centenary (35-9) fell to second-seeded Cal Lutheran (33-11) 8-2 in the winner’s bracket semifinal in the NCAA West Baseball Regional Friday night, May 19. Cal Lutheran scored five runs in the fifth and one in the sixth, but a key two-out hit scored a pair of Centenary runs in the top of the seventh. With one out, freshman Cody Crowder singled up the middle and senior Scott Dwyer walked on four straight. After a groundball moved both runners into scoring position, sophomore Cameron Guin cleared the bases with a single up the middle.
May 18, 2017 Centenary Diamond Gents Small Balls to Big Inning, Wins NCAA Debut 12-1 TYLER, Texas - Despite being a southern team, the Gents out-west coasted team a squad from Oregon. Junior Kaleb Kirk (11-3) broke the single-season Maroon and White record with his 23rd-career win and the Gents used small ball and key two-out hits to explode for four runs in the second as third-seeded Centenary (35-8) beat fourth-seeded Linfield (30-14) 12-1 in the first round of the NCAA West Baseball Regional at Tyler, Texas Thursday night, May 18.
April 30, 2017 How Sweet It Is! #6 Centenary Gents Dancing with Run-Rule Win against Trinity in SCAC Championship Game GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas – It was not exactly a work of art when the Gents lost game one in heartbreaking fashion to play the if necessary game, but the Maroon and White jumped on the Tigers from the first pitch in the decider. The first three Gents in game two loaded the bases, and sophomore Chris Zapata blasted the first pitch he saw into the batter’s eye in centerfield to break the career record for RBI’s as Centenary (34-18) run-ruled Trinity (28-16) 13-3 to win the 2017 Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Baseball Championship Sunday afternoon, April 30 at AirHogs Stadium in Grand Prairie, Texas.
April 29, 2017 #6 Centenary Gents Power Past Trinity into SCAC Tournament Championship Game, 5-3 GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas – After the game, senior Michael Schimpf received his diploma as a graduate of Centenary College. But before the ceremony, Schimpf made sure he made it a day to remember, even before he received his degree. Schimpf hit a two run blast to left to begin the scoring in the first inning, and he added the go-ahead RBI double in the bottom of the fifth as the Gents (33-7) knocked off Trinity (26-15) 5-3 in the finals of the winner’s bracket on day two at the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament at AirHogs Stadium in Grand Prairie, Texas.
