Condor Athletics Tabs Steven Hernandez as Assistant Baseball Coach
August 6, 2018—Oxnard, CA
Oxnard College Baseball had some big shoes to fill with the retirement of long-time assistant Roger Frash. Fortunately, a familiar Condor Steve Hernandez was ready for the responsibility.
Coach Hernandez started with the Condors in 1990 as a player for two years, and then moved on to Chico State where he played and received his BA in Social Sciences. He received his Master's in Education from National University.
He started his coaching career at Urban High School and then became the Head Coach at Carlmont High School, with a stint as coach of the Bay Area Rams and San Francisco Seals. From 2002-2005 Coach Hernandez has been the Assistant Coach for Sierra College, the Alexandria Beetles (Northwoods League) and for the Anchorage Glacier Pilots (Alaska Baseball League).
Coach Hernandez then moved on to become the Head Coach at Pacifica High School (2003-2007). As the coach, they set school records for most wins by a team, team batting average, team stolen bases, and team runs scored.
From 2008-2013 Steve coached in the Hawaiian Collegiate League and was also with the Conejo Oaks from 2013-2017
Coach Hernandez joined the Oxnard staff as the pitching coach in 2008, and under his tutelage, the Condors have thrived. In 2009 the pitching staff was ranked #2 in the WSC, with the conference pitcher of the year (Justin Bricker) and two All-Americans (JC Aguayo and Brian Willson) benefiting from Coach Hernandez. He was also able to help two state pitchers-of-the-year, Luke Eubank (2014) and Blake Redman (2015), achieve greatness at the CCCAA level and beyond.
Condors Mourn the Loss of Juan “Fanta” Garcia
June 26, 2018—Oxnard, CA
Former Condor Men’s Soccer Athlete, Juan “Fanta” Garcia passed away on Sunday, June 24th in Oxnard. Garcia was killed in a motorcycle crash that was reported just after 1:15 a.m. Sunday on Gonzales Road near Oxnard High School.
Juan played for the Condors in the ’13 and ‘14 seasons. He was a big contributor to the Condors run of five WSC championships in a row.
He grew up playing soccer in the local community and was known for his positive attitude and passion for life. He was helping his mom raise his siblings and working for a better life for his family. Juan was supporting his brother and sister working as a roofer, and in his free time, he was coaching a boys soccer team in Santa Barbara.
Fanta was only 24 years old when he passed, and will be missed by so many. This was the second Condor who was taken too early by accident. The Condors lost Rosie Zavala earlier this year in a tragic car accident.
Juan’s family and friends will be holding a Rosario at 7:00 pm tonight (June 26th), in front of Oxnard High School. The family will be selling commemorative shirts to help memorialize Fanta as well.

Softball and Baseball Suffer Losses
April 24—Santa Maria/Oxnard

On Saturday, OC had nine hits and scored four runs to defeat the Cougars, 4-1.
On a blustery day in Game 1, Oxnard fell behind early 8-4 in the fourth inning. All seemed to be lost in the fifth inning as Cuesta scored another five runs.
In the seventh inning, OC came charging back, with a grand slam from Brett Workman. Another RBI by Noah Goss in the eighth inning, made the score 13-10 in favor of the Cougars. That would be as close as the Condors could get.

Colin Freeman was 2-3 with two runs and Anthony Magdaleno went 1-3, with a double and an RBI. Alex Chavez stayed hot with two more hits and a run scored.

Coach will be stepping down at OC after this year, but will always be a member of the Condor Family.
Losses Cost Condors

Despite scoring 21 runs in the last two games, Oxnard has nothing to show for the terrific offense, dropping to 10-21 overall and 4-8 in the WSC North.

SBCC Grabs 6-5 Win over OC Softball
Softball Drops Tough Decision to SBCC
Oxnard Softball felt the sting of an untimely error in the bottom of the seventh inning to lose 6-5 against Santa Barbara.
