Good news for NSU

Speaking with NSU baseball coach Mitch Gaspard before the 2006 season brought one name to the forefront -- Heath Hennigan.

Gaspard's voice perked up when he spoke of the 6-foot-7 right-hander from Pineville. He thought he had a diamond in the rough. Well, turns out he does.

It's taken a little more time to polish the big right-hander but the Demons finally got a breakthrough performance from Hennigan, who handcuffed Louisiana-Lafayette last week en route to Southland Conference Pitcher of the Week honors.

Any good news the Demons can get right now is welcome, but when it comes to a pitching staff, no team will complain about having a surplus of quality arms. It appears, with Hennigan's improvement and maturity, the Demons have found another one.
