Oxnard ties No. 2 Cerritos

September 10—Oxnard

VC Star-Joe Curley

The brutal gauntlet that is the Oxnard College men’s soccer team’s two-week, five-match nonconference schedule made its one appearance at the Condors’ Nest Tuesday.

Ramping up its strength of schedule in an effort to improve its postseason fortune, Oxnard will have faced nationally ranked opposition in four of its five matches by the time it opens Western State Conference play Sept. 16.

Not that the quality of opposition allows Ross Greaney to grade his team on a curve.

After one-goal losses to national No. 4 Mount San Antonio and No. 15 Santa Ana, the Oxnard coach wasn’t content with Tuesday’s 1-1 home tie with visiting Cerritos, the No. 2-ranked team in the national coaches’ poll.

“It’s early, it’s the same growing pains we always have,” Greaney said. “Obviously, we have the ball the whole time, so that’s very encouraging.”

Oxnard (1-2-1), which visits No. 8 Taft on Friday, spent much of the 90 minutes poking and prodding Cerritos (4-0-1) with possession.

But the Condors struggled to convert the chances Cerritos made them work so hard to create.

“It’s very easy to make a defensive shape and bunker,” Greaney said. “If that’s the No. 2 team in the country, that’s pretty embarrassing for them.

“You saw it. I’m not making it up. Come out and play a little bit, you know?”

The Condors were lifted by the return of sophomore Juan Garcia (pic), the marauding fullback who was one of the stars of last fall.

Garcia created the Oxnard equalizer in the 51st minute, putting striker Alex Garcia clean through on goal to round the Cerritos goalkeeper and finish.

Both teams had chances to win the game in the final half-hour. Oxnard’s Edwin Elizzaraz lunged to block a goal-bound Cerritos shot in the 65th minute. Two minutes later, an excellent save from Cerritos’ Ivan Del Campo kept Oxnard’s Diego Ortega from heading a corner kick home.

Oxnard attacker Johnny Lopez nearly put Juan Garcia in alone on goal, but a Cerritos defender cleared with an acrobatic scissors kick.

“I’m happy with the guys for the chances they did create,” Greaney said. “ I think there’s a lot of unforced errors that we can clean up.

“We have a lot of talent. We just need to execute the details better.”

Oxnard College XC Continues to Progress

September 5th—Whittier

The Condor Women were still without a scoring team, but had strong performances from each indidual.  Cynthia Martinez led the squad again, narrowly missing a Top 10 finish, running 19:31 for 11th place.  She improved on her time from last year’s course by 30 seconds.  Andrea Cervantes ran tough after not feeling well at arrival to the meet, but was able to shake it off, and clocked in at 20:25 for 26th place, which was still an improvement by 47 seconds from the previous season.  Sandra Martinez was OC’s 3rd woman on the team and placed 51st in 22:17.  Jazmine Garcia improved significantly from last week’s opener (time-wise) by approximately seven minutes and ran 25:45 for 72nd place.

On the men’s side, Ricky Garcia (pic) ran an outstanding performance good enough for 10th place.  He ran 20:45, which was over a minute improvement from last year’s performance on the 4 mile course, and brought home the sole award for the entire squad.  Oscar Cisneros shocked everyone by becoming the 2nd scorer of the day, moving up from the 5th man the week prior.  He placed 34th with a time of 21:49.  Brian Rodriguez, who struggled late in the race with cramps, was OC’s 3rd man on the team and just finished behind Oscar in 37th (21:56).  Santiago Jasso stepped up his performance from last week and was the 4th scorer in 42nd with a time of 22:05.  Edgar Costilla continues to gain experience in his rookie year of running and rounded out the team score in 58th with a time of 22:41.  Angel Juarez 6th (23:51), Cesar Fernandez 7th man in 84th (24:42), Octavio Leon in 27:21.  The men’s team finished 6th out of 11.

The Condors have a bye next week and will use it as a training session to gear up for the Southern California Preview Meet. It will be held on September 19th at Woodley Park in Van Nuys.

Oxnard Lady Condors Open Fall Sports 

September 9—Oxnard

The Oxnard College Women’s Soccer Team looks to improve upon their 2013-14 season.  The Condors return six sophomores, and have some terrific first-year players contributing.

August 29th, Friday vs. Citrus

The Condors suffered a 3-1 loss to Citrus College. Elaina Crenshaw (pic) with the Goal for OC, and Yazmin Velazquez tallied the assist. Citrus is a traditional playoff team and  lived up to their reputation.

August 30th, Saturday  vs Sacramento

Again OC stumbled at the start and lost 2-0. Andrea Bautista and Mellisa Hernadez gave up a goal on either side of halftime, but Sacramento was much improved from last year.  Oxnard had trouble creating chances, and failed to score, dropping their record to 0-2 on the young season.

September 2nd, Tuesday vs. Compton

The Lady Condors came roaring back from their slow start to win 4-1. Freshman Elaina Crenshaw scored the opening goal, and was assisted by Ashley Guitierez and Joanna "Nana" Lopez. Mimi Ayala scored the second goal, by tapping in a rebound from an Elaina Crensaw shot. Ayala then scored her second goal of the game following up a shot from Julie Garibay. Nana Lopez put the last goal in the back of the net when she sliced a shot with the outside of her foot from 20 yards out just before halftime.

Compton scored a late consolation goal in the 70th minute.  

OC improved to 1-2 on the season, looking to level their record on Tuesday, September 9th against West LA.  The game is slated for a 2:00 kickoff at the Stadium Field.

Condor Harriers Kick-off the Fall Season

August 29—Ventura

The start of the cross-country season was kicked off at the Ventura Invitational held at Arroyo Verde Park for the Condors.  Arroyo Verde, known to be one of the most challenging courses around, proved to be an eye-opener for the fairly young teams for both the men & women. 

Starting off with the women’s team, while we were short by one to make a scoring team for this meet, the four ladies that competed ran well individually.  Sophomore Cynthia Martinez led the squad and finished 20th place with a time of 24:01 improving her time from last year by a respectable 36 seconds.  Sophomore Andrea Cervantes was our 2nd woman finishing 37th place in 25:01.  Freshman runner, Sandra Martinez, who has returned to running a year after her high school career ended and decided to pick up the sport again was our 3rd woman finishing 56th in 27:31.  Jazmine Garcia, also a freshman, was our 4th scorer and placed 80th with a time of 32:31.  The ladies look to improve on their upcoming performances as we move forward with the addition of Freshmen Maria Avila and Rosa Cedilla to fill out the squad.

On the men’s side, we had a few surprises to kick off the season.  Sophomore runner, Ricky Garcia, who was the 1st man interchangeably with last year’s squad, led the team this year.  He finished 24th place and ran 23:46 improving his personal best on the course by an impressive one whole minute.  Brian Rodriguez, also a leading member of the squad, finished 55th place in 25:16.  The biggest surprise of the day for the men’s team was Freshman Edgar Costilla, who has never competed in cross-country before and just decided he wanted to try it out just a few months prior to the season, ended up being 3rd man on the team.  He finished 65th with a time of 25:48.  Not too far behind Edgar were Freshmen Santiago Jasso and Oscar Cisneros in 69th and 75th place respectively.  Those three men ran in a pack for most of the race and it definitely worked to our advantage.  Our 6th man was Freshman Angel Juarez in 102nd with a time of 29:01.  Our 7th man was Freshman Octavio Leon in a time of 31:38. Freshman Cesar Fernandez ended up having a rough race as he had a calf attack occur about midway into the competition, but refused to drop out and made himself hobble to the finish.  That took guts to finish what he started and he will be taking careful precautions to prevent another attack as we progress throughout the season.  As a team, the men finished 11th out of 12 teams total but were close in points to the next teams ahead. 

The next meet will be the Rio Hondo Invitational at Legg Lake in South El Monte on September 5th.

Condors Advance to Final Four

May 17-Oxnard

It just keeps getting better for the Oxnard College baseball team.

As the record for wins goes up so do chances of winning the first team state title in Oxnard College Athletic history.

OC swept Santa Barbara CC out of the playoffs with a tough 3-2 victory on Saturday afternoon. Patrick Weigel picked up the win for Oxnard. He allowed two runs on five hits, striking out four Vaqueros.

Blake Redman came up big again for OC, picking up his ninth save of the year. Redman came in the game in the sixth inning, with two on and no out. He promptly shut the door on SBCC, giving up only one hit, and no runs.

The Oxnard offense was all in the sixth inning. Jerrett Maas led off the attack with a base hit. Julian Ramon followed with a single of his own. Ryan Webberley smashed another double to left field, plating Maas, and advancing Ramon to third. Daniel Barnett sacrificed Ramon in, and Webberey was able to score on a wild pitch.

The three runs were enough to catapult OC into the Final Four Baseball State Championship, next week in Fresno.

The first game is scheduled for Saturday at 12:00 against San Joaquin Delta.

OC One Win Away

May 16-Oxnard

bsbdanielbarnettOn a day when the Condors set their season winning record at 32, they find themselves one win away from OC history.

Oxnard gained a hard-fought 2-1 victory against WSC rival Santa Barbara on Friday afternoon. Luke Eubank earned his 12th victory to go along with no losses. He struck out seven Vaqueros, and scattered only 4 hits on the day. Eubank leads the state in strikeouts at 126, and gave the Condors a chance to win.

Julian Ramon singled with one out in the seventh inning. He was followed by Ryan Webberley who doubled, deep in the left field corner, to put runners at second and third. After a fine fielding play by SBBC's Matt Gimenez at third base, Daniel Barnett (pic) came to the plate. Barnett singled down the right field line to plate both Condors, and take a 2-1 lead.

Blake Redman came in at the top of the 8th to turn away Santa Barbara for good. Redman earned his 8th save of the year, by holding the Vaqueros scoreless for two innings.

The same two teams meet tomorrow at 1:00, in the second game of the series.

Fans are encouraged to arrive early as the California Strawberry Festival kicks off at 10:00. The surrounding areas of the College will be very busy on both Saturday and Sunday.

May 10-Oxnard

bsbblakeredmanacttionIt wasn't easy, but the #2 ranked Condors advance to the third round of the CCCAA playoffs by beating LA Pierce, 6-5 in 11 innings on Saturday.

OC will host either Santa Barbara CC or Santa Ana CC next week. The first game will be on Friday, May 16th, at 2:00 p.m. The winner of that series will advance to the Final-Four State Championship in Fresno the following week.

May 9-Oxnard

bsbryanwebberleyactionOxnard Ace Luke Eubank took the ball in Game 1 of the 2014 Super Regional Playoffs and shut down LA Pierce. The Condors came away with a 9-1 victory, to gain a 1-0 edge, in the best of three series.

Condors Rally to Get Past East LA

May 3-Oxnard

bsbblakeredmanGame two of the CCCAA Divisional Playoffs between East LA and Oxnard provided great entertainment for the fans. The Huskies started Shawn Kennedy and the Condors countered with Patrick Weigel. The two terrific pitchers dueled into the sixth inning, with the score tied 0-0.

Patrick Herrera relieved Weigel in the sixth inning. Oxnard took the lead in the seventh when Dustyn Cook doubled home Jordan Farris. The score remained 1-0 until two outs, in the bottom of the ninth.

With East LA as the home team for this game, they put runners on second and third. ELAC's short stop, Kevin Rodriguez was clutch with two strikes, driving the ball into right field, scoring two runs, and walking off with the win.

Game three started with some fireworks. Dustyn Cook led off with a double, followed by Jerrett Maas who drove in Cook with a double of his own. Julian Ramon singled to left field, and Ryan Webberley doubled to left field, driving in Maas. On the play, Ramon was thrown out at the plate (literally), for improper contact with the catcher. As the ball beat Ramon to the plate, by rule, Ramon was not allowed to run into the catcher, and was ejected. After the dust settled, Oxnard had all the runs they needed, at 2-0.

Daniel Barnett came in as the Condors third catcher, and did a terrific job behind the plate. Oxnard starter, Blake Redman (pic) went the distance, and allowed 0 runs, on five hits, with three punch outs. He earned his second win of the series, and fifth of the year, to go along with seven saves.

The 2-0 victory advances OC to the second round of the playoffs. Most likely they will play WSC Division rivals, Hancock College, who defeated Palomar College, earlier in the day.

The first game of round two is scheduled for Friday, May 9th, with the first pitch at 2:00. Ticket prices to get in the Condors' Nest will be $10 General Admission, $7 Other, and $12 for and All-Tournament Pass.

Oxnard College Baseball Wins Game One over ELAC

May 2-Oxnard

bsbryantinkhamWith Luke Eubank (10-0) going to the hill for the #2-ranked OC Condors, game one of the divisional playoffs against the East LA Huskies, looked like a sure thing. There are no sure-things in baseball.

With Oxnard committing four errors, and the Huskies scrapping at the plate, OC found themselves in a dog fight. The score was tied 3-3, going into the 10th inning, when sophomore sensation, Ryan Tinkham (pic, 2-5) came to the plate. He promptly doubled over the Husky left-fielder. DH Julian Ramon (2-4) got the walk-off RBI single, to win Game 1, 4-3.

The Condor celebration was cut short, however, with Ryan Tinkham writhing in pain at home plate. Tinkham injured his shoulder on the play, and will be sorely missed tomorrow.

Blake Redman pitched a solid 10th inning, to earn his fourth win of the season, and biggest of his career. Other Condor contributors include Dustyn Cook (2-3, 2 RBI, 2 steals), Jerrett Maas (2-4, 1 steal).

The Condors will attempt to advance to round two of regional play when they face ELAC tomorrow at 11:00. Tickets are $10 General Admission, $7 Seniors, Children, Faculty, Staff.

Oxnard College Softball Triples Number of Wins

April 25-Oxnard

At initial glance, the Lady Condor Softball team finished 6-32 overall, and 4-14 in the WSC. This is four more wins than last season, and four more wins in conference as well.

With a team made up of freshmen, the ladies learned what collegiate softball is all about. The players are stronger, faster, and more mentally prepared than at the high school level. The traditionally tough WSC schedule was a grind for the young Condors, but they posted three wins over Pierce College, and a signature victory over third-place Santa Barbara.

OC was led by Rebecca Lucero (3B) who batted .323, Janine Gomez (OF/P) with a .302 average, and Sabrina Gomez (SS) with a .279 average. Gomez supplied some pop for the Condors with two HR's, four triples, and seven doubles.

Brittanie Lopez and Victoria Rangel provided sophomore leadership, especially at the beginning of the season. The Condors needed some stability, and both ladies sacrificed at their positions and personally, to play.

The tight-knit Condors will be returning seven other freshman including Amanda Ramirez, Janessa Ontiveros (two-sport athlete), Jordan Singleterry, Jennifer Andrade, Marissa Montoya, Jessica Delgado, and Karin Ramirez. All of these ladies contributed to make the team fun to watch and the team chemistry excellent.

Head Coach- Todd Prieto (805-208-6181), Assistant Coach-Edna Gutierrez (805-844-5371), Assistant Coach-Wendy Garcia (805-236-0167), and Team Manager Breanna Gonzalez are holding the first ever Oxnard College Softball Camps this summer.
