NDSCS Athletics to add Baseball to varsity sports line-up


North Dakota State College of Science will add to its successful line-up of athletics teams with the addition of baseball in the 2020-2021 season. The Wildcat baseball team will play in the Mon-Dak Conference and will compete at the NJCAA Division III level. 

“We are excited to add more opportunities for student athletes by beginning a baseball program,” said NDSCS Athletics Director Stu Engen. “We recognize that baseball is a very popular sport in southeast North Dakota and the surrounding region, and we look forward to adding a Wildcat baseball team to our five other successful athletics programs at NDSCS.”

The search will soon begin for a head baseball coach, who will immediately lead player recruitment efforts to fill a roster for the team’s inaugural season. The Wildcat baseball team will host its home games at John Randall Field in Wahpeton, N.D. The team will play a fall schedule of scrimmages, and will compete in conference play in the spring season.

The NDSCS baseball team will join an athletics department that consists of nationally competitive teams in volleyball, football, men’s and women’s basketball, and softball. Additional information can be found online at ndscswildcats.com.
