BC Baseball has established itself as one of the top junior college baseball programs in the region and in the country. Last year in 2016, Bellevue was the top ranked team in the NWAC for all but one week during the regular season. In the last nine years, Bellevue has won the NWAC title three years, finished runner-up once, and finished third twice. The squad was ranked nationally all season long in 2012 and was No. 8 nationally in June 2011 after capping off an amazing year by winning the NWAC Championship with a 37-14 record. It was the team’s third title in five years (2007, 2009, 2011) after a long drought dating back to 1979.
In 2007 the team was ranked No. 1 in the NWAC Top 8 Coaches’ Poll for most of the season. The squad also finished with a national ranking of 18th; putting Bellevue within the same group of other national powerhouses.
A strong reputation precedes the BC baseball program. With several league titles to its name, a high number of winning teams, and top-notch facilities, it’s no surprise that BC baseball athletes consistently receive scholarships to 4-year colleges and universities.
