NGU Baseball 2

North Greenville University (NGU) has hosted two NCAA Division II baseball Super Regionals since 2019, and the No. 1 ranked defending national champions will do it again this weekend in Tigerville.

NGU punched its ticket to the Southeast Super Regional with back-to-back wins (11-5, 9-2) over Mount Olive last weekend at Ray and Bea Dillard Field at Ashmore Park.

“This team has already accomplished so much,” said Head Coach Landon Powell. “They were ranked No. 1 in the country during the preseason, and they stayed No. 1 all year long. We have a body of work that’s impressive, and hopefully they can keep that confidence and remember who they’ve been all year long during the Super Regional.”

NGU Commencement 2023

Encouraged to make a difference by using their gifts and talents to glorify God, 281 North Greenville University students had their degrees conferred during Spring Commencement ceremonies Friday evening at Younts Stadium in Tigerville. 

“The only chance we have to give a glimpse of glory to God on this earth is to do something through Him that causes people to ask ‘why?’” said Furman Men’s Basketball Coach Bob Richey, a 2006 summa cum laude graduate of NGU, who delivered the university’s Commencement address.  

“If you play it safe, you’ll never get there. This world needs people with conviction. We need courage. We need believers. We’re equipped to go make a difference because of the gifts God has given us, and He’s begging us to use them,” he said.
