THE Official Website of Oxnard College Athletics
In the NEWS:
Baseball Falls to Cuesta
The Condors dropped their second-to-last game of the year to Cuesta, 5-3 on Thursday afternoon.
Starting pitcher, Casey Rodriguez, got into trouble by allowing 3 runs in the first inning, without giving up a hit. He walked 4 batters and hit another to allow the WSC champion Cougars to score all the runs they would need.
Dallas Rushing and Dom Guevara had two hits each to lead the Condor offense.
Josh Grajeda (pic) pitched 4 solid innings of relief, giving up no runs, on 2 hits. He struck out 3 Cuesta batters, and gave OC a chance to come back.
OC managed a run in the ninth, but a double-play with the bases loaded certainly was indicative of the way the entire season has gone.
The Condors finish their season at Cuesta on Friday.
Condors Walk-Off the Vaqs
Jonah White (pic) drove in the winning run on Saturday to lift Oxnard to a 4-3 win over Santa Barbara. White was 2 for 5 on the day. Dom Guevara, Jose “Pepe” Hernandez, and Nick Morelli also all collected 2 hits, to lead the Condors back to 16-16 on the season.
Billy Conard overcame a shaky third inning to pitch 9 innings of 6-hit ball. Jeff Espinoza pitched a perfect 10th inning to pick up his second victory of the season.
The Condors ended up on the winning end of a close game. They are now 3-8 in one-run-games.

Redemption for the Condors
On Saturday afternoon, The Oxnard College Condor Baseball Team honored Johnson Wood. Johnson passed away suddenly last year. OC honored the former Condor great who was a star on the 1980 team. He was 1st Team All-CIF for Hueneme HS in 1979, and was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers. Mr. Melvin Wood, Johnson’s brother, threw out the first pitch.
The game between OC and rival VC started ominously with the Pirates scoring first. VC led 3-1 in the third inning, when the Condor bats begin to come alive. Nick Morelli led thing off with a single, followed by Ryan Tinkhan (1b), and after moving to 2nd and 3rd after a sacrifice by Bronson Shim, they were driven in by Dom Guevara’s single.
The floodgates opened up after the third, with the Condors scoring 1 in the fourth, one in the sixth, three in the seventh, and three in the eighth inning.
Billy Conard pitched a complete game, allowing 3 earned runs, and picking up 4 strike outs for his 6th win of the year.
Nick Morelli (pic) was 4 for 4 with an RBI, 3 runs scored and a stolen base. Jose “Pepe” Hernandez was 4 for 5 with a double, RBI, and a run scored. Both Ryan Tinkham and Dom Guevara were 2 for 3, both having a double. Guevara had 4 RBI’s and Tinkham added one of his own. Both scored 2 runs with 2 walks on the afternoon. Mark Fitzgerald was 2 for 4 with an RBI, run scored, and 2 RBI’s.

The silver lining on the afternoon had to be the Condor pitching staff. Freshman Austin Kamel (pic) started his first collegiate game. He pitched five solid innings, giving up only one earned run, on four hits. Kamel also fanned 6 Brahma batters. Josh Grajeda came into the ballgame in the sixth inning, and gave up only one hit through two innings of work. Finally, Freshman Jeff Espinosa threw two innings, giving up one hit and an unfortunate unearned run.

Women's Soccer Signing: Gambala to Dominguez Hills
Alexandria Gambala committed to California State Dominguez Hills to play collegiate soccer next year, during her official recruiting visit on campus last week.
At Oxnard College, Gambala was the starting sweeper and team captain for the Lady Condors after transferring from Fresno State University.
At Hueneme High Gambala was a 3 sport athlete (Soccer, Volleyball & Track/ CC).
Alex will be playing for the Toros head coach Joe Flanagan next year, and will get to compete at the Home Depot Center for several games.
WSC Champs’ Season Ends
The Oxnard College men’s soccer team made the OC campus proud. Not only did they go undefeated in winning their 3rd WSC Conference Championship in six years, they also did excellent work in the classroom.
In slick conditions in the Condor’s Nest on Saturday afternoon, Oxnard fell to Orange Coast College, 2-1. The muddy conditions were tough on OC as they rely on a precise ball control offense to control the pace.
"The conditions definitely favored them," Oxnard coach Ross Greaney said. "Our game is ball control, passing and possessing all day. We just couldn't get going."
OC scored first, to go ahead 1-0 in the first half. Cory Vilchis played the ball forward for Max Madrigal, who beat his defender and floated a cross for Travis Bowen to head home the goal.
The second half saw OCC continue to play physical soccer, and force home two goals around the 70 minute mark.
Oxnard had multiple scoring chances in the final 15 minutes of the game, but was unable to convert.
All the sophomores have been putting much time into their soccer and studies; they should all be graduating and transferring after terrific careers at the Condor’s Nest.
Early Signings: Conard to New Mexico State
Billy Conard (Royal H.S.), a 6’ 5” pitcher for the Condors has committed to attend New Mexico State University starting in the fall of 2013.
Billy notched 1 win with a 3.42 ERA last year with OC, and looks to be a major contributor for the Condor’s pitching staff this coming spring.
Condor Soccer Draws Orange Coast College—Round 1 CCCAA So. Cal Regionals
The Oxnard College men’s soccer team will match-up against the Orange Coast Pirates in Round 1 of the So. Cal. Regional Playoffs. The game will be held on the Stadium Field starting at 2:00, November 17th.
The WSC Champion Condors are ranked #4 in So. Cal., and #9 in the state, and went undefeated in conference play. The game will certainly be challenging as the “other” OC plays in the Orange Empire Conference. The Pirates (11-5-4 overall and 7-4-3 in conference) have quality wins against Santa Ana and El Camino, both playoff teams.
