BC Baseball has established itself as one of the top junior college baseball programs in the country. 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.
