After a two-year stint at Heartland Community College, St. Joseph-Ogden graduate Austin Cain will continue his athletic career at Nicholls State University.

Cain will major in business at the public university that boasts an enrollment of 6,366 students located in Thibodaux, Louisiana, about an hour and 15 minutes drive west of New Orleans.

The 2018 Spartan baseball alumnus will join the Colonels who were 10-8 this season before the Coronavirus pandemic put the kibosh on collegiate and prep sports this spring.

In his 24 at bats this season with Heartland, Cain batted in nine runs and collected five stolen bases. He had a career season-high 3 RBI game against Macomb Community College on March 7 and stole two bases on the road against Lansing Community College three days later on March 10.
