To say that Delta State University first baseman Zack Shannon has been hitting the ball well would be a slight understatement.

He’s not just hitting the ball; he’s pure crushing it.

In the Statesmen’s 15-0 win over the Harding Bisons here Tuesday evening at Ferriss Field-Harvey Stadium, the senior from Cincinnati, Ohio went 3-for-3 with two home runs and seven RBIs to stretch his hitting streak to 12 games. During the 12-game hitting streak, Shannon is hitting .578 (26-for-45) with 12 home runs and 34 RBIs. He has also reached base in 18 straight games, scored a run in 11 straight games, driven in a run in eight straight games and hit a home run in five straight games.

Statesmen lose to Argos in double OT in GSC Title Game

The Delta State University Statesmen played valiantly but came up short a little bit short in the Gulf South Conference Men’s Basketball Tournament at the Pete Hanna Center in Birmingham, Ala. this weekend.

After upsetting top seeded Valdosta State University 63-59 on Saturday in the semifinals, the Statesmen dropped a heartbreaker to West Florida 71-65 in double overtime in the championship game of the tournament Sunday. The double overtime contest was the first in championship history.

Statesmen extend winning streak to 14 games

The Delta State University Statesmen began the season ranked No. 1 in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper Preseason Poll.

With DSU preseason ranked at No. 1 in the nation, the 7-0 loss to Lynn University in the first game of the year on Feb. 2 in Boca Raton, Fla. might have seemed shocking to some and could have been a bad sign of things to come. The biggest thing about baseball is it’s just one game in a season that lasts at least 50 games or more.
