OCC Athletics - 68 years of championship tradition
With over six decades of history, the championship tradition of OCC athletics has been etched by the athletes of the past and carried on by the athletes of the future.
Coast has won the Orange Empire Conference Sports Supremacy Award 26 times over the past 30 years. That trophy is emblematic of the conference's top overall men's and women's athletic program.
It's a rich athletic history that began with the first-ever OCC Athlete of the Year (Kenny Moats, baseball/football) and has carried over to this day.
OCC's championship run began in 1956 when the Pirate baseball team topped'em all en route to a state crown.
Since then, an astounding 87 state and national champions have been crowned. On top of the team success and conference-wide success, OCC athletics has also been recognized as a whole on the statewide level, winning the Pepsi/NATYCAA Cup on two different occasions (2007-08 and 2009-10) for overall excellence throughout the program.
As Orange Coast College heads into its seventh decade, the Pirate athletic program is bigger and better than it's ever been. All it needs are student-athletes willing to put in the hard work, dedication and effort needed to be a champion, both on the athletic fields and off. Are you willing to take that challenge?
OCC -- The tradition continues!
