February 18, 2019 Freshman Blake Benson Spins Shutout In First Collegiate Start Clarksville, Ark.-Freshman left-hander Blake Benson spun a complete game shutout in his first collegiate start Monday. Benson went eight innings, fanned eight and scattered five hits in a 10-0 win. It was the first shutout for the Eagles since 2016. The win also gave the Eagles the sweep against Westminster College. Benson worked quickly in the first striking out two batters and forcing a flyout. He retired the side in the second and then gave up two hits in the third. He also retired the side in the fourth. He induced a double play in the sixth and retired the side in the seventh and eighth innings to keep the shutout intact. The Eagles' offense manufactured a steady dose of runs for Benson throughout the game. Chase Edwards highlighted the offense with a two-run shot in the fourth. Edwards finished 2-for-5 with five RBI.
February 17, 2019 Eagles Win Wild Game One With Varner Driving In Seven Clarksville, Ark.-The offense pounded out 16 hits and Breyden Varner drove in seven runs to help the Eagles overcome a seven-run third inning from Westminster College and secure a wild 15-11 win in game one of Sunday's double-header. Varner started the scoring fest in the bottom of the first when he sent a three-run homer over the center field wall. Westminster had a big third inning recording six hits and scoring seven runs to hold a 8-4 advantage. The Eagles were far from done though as the offense provided two runs in the bottom of the third to cut the deficit to 8-6. Westminster got both runs back in the fourth, but the Eagles produced two runs on Rocky Liveoak's two-run double in the bottom half of the frame. Trailing 11-8, the Eagles had another big inning to take the lead for good. This time, in the bottom of the fifth, Rey Lozano doubled in a pair of runs and Varner smashed his second homer of the game to drive in three more. Dakota Ebarb then sliced a double to center field to push across the sixth run of the inning. Varner had more to do as he doubled to center field to record his seventh RBI of the game in the sixth. From there, closer Corey Steward threw a hitless seventh inning to end the game.
February 16, 2019 Men's Basketball Team Hits 50 percent In Senior Day Win Clarksville, Ark.-The Eagles ended the season on a high note earning a 82-67 win over Belhaven University on Senior Day. The Eagles shot a solid 50 percent from the field on the day. The Eagles used their depth to wear down Belhaven as 17 players saw action in the game. The Eagles led 34-28 at halftime, and extended the lead to 47-36 at the 14:24 mark of the second half on Darnel Renelique's basket and free throw. Belhaven hung around and cut the deficit to 52-50 around the 12-minute mark, but the Eagles controlled the rest of the game. Renelique posted a double-double, but it was Jacobe Davis that sparked the offense with 16 points. It was the final game for seniors Skyler Barnes, Clay Conley and Lance Gardner.
February 16, 2019 Softball Team Wins Conference Series Against Concordia University Texas Austin, Texas-The Eagles won their American Southwest Conference series against Concordia University Texas with a 3-1 win Saturday.

In the fifth, Cantu delivered a single herself to drive in Alexis Holt. The final score came when Kieara Bryant doubled in Lee in the sixth. Rogers retired the side in the sixth and seventh innings. Rogers received the save, while Mork took the win.
February 16, 2019 Belhaven Women Pull Off Upset Clarksville, Ark.-On a day where neither team was able to find much success shooting the ball, the visiting Belhaven Univerrsity Blazers hit just enough shots to secure a 68-63 win over the Eagles. Despite the loss, the Eagles have qualified for the American Southwest Conference Championship Tournament under first-year head coach Kourtni Williams.  The Eagles are the No. 3 seed out of the East Division and will play Hardin-Simmons University in Belton, Texas, February 21. The Eagles had a strong showing in the first quarter and even pulled out to a 17-10 lead. The Blazers returned the favor with a strong showing of their own in the second quarter, that was good enough to pull ahead, 30-29 at the half. The emotion of Senior Day took over, and seniors Hailey Ostrander, Savannah Kate Smith, and Diamond Goodwyn combined to account for 20 points at the break. Belhaven guards Aaliyaha Thornton and Brittany Ford sparked a late, third quarter charge, which gave the visitors a ten-point advantage heading into the final frame. Smith and Ostrander led a valiant comeback for the Eagles, but the lead proved to be too much to overcome, as the home squad fell by five points. Aaliyaha Thornton and Brittany Ford paced Belahaven with 16 points a piece. Smith paved the way for Ozarks with 22 points and four rebounds.
