The team posted a 16-5 record, which was good for a .625 winning percentage – the highest for the program since the 2005 campaign. The Bison established program-records for dingers (29), on-base percentage (.444), and slugging pct. (.542), and also recorded the second-highest team batting average (.343) in program history. Nichols hurlers fanned 228 batters in 2021, second only to the 254 registered during his first season at the helm of the program in 2019. Nichols pitchers held opponents to a .256 batting average in 2021, which is the fourth-lowest mark ever recorded in Dudley.
