Men Place 6th at State Swim

Nick Vallejo claimed his third individual place at the CCCAA State Championships Saturday, finishing sixth in the 100-yard freestyle, leading VC to an overall sixth place finish at the state meet.

 Swim  5-3-2014  The Ventura College men's swim team capped off an inspiring run with a 6th place finish at the CCCAA State Championships at East Los Angeles College Saturday.  The Western State Conference champions totaled 240 points to finish behind Diablo Valley (259) and ahead of conference foe Cuesta (203).  Nick Vallejo placed in his third individual event in the three-day meet, finishing sixth in the 100-yard freestyle.  Joe Yamamoto scored in the 200-yard breast stroke while Chris Sands produced VC's best individual finish, placing third in the 200-yard butterfly.  The 400-yard freestyle relay team also came in fifth.   READ MORE... 

Pirate Men Claim Unlikely Title

The Ventura College men's swimming team completed their 11th conference title in 12 years Saturday at the WSC finals at LA Valley College. Swim  4-19-2014  For the past decade, the Pirate men's swimming team had been the hunted.  Winners of 10 straight conference titles form 2003-2012, VC was caught by Cuesta College a year ago as the Cougars claimed first place.  This year, Ventura was projected to finish third in the Western State Conference championships.  With the serious illness that had affected head coach Larry Baratte since August, third would have been good, but the Pirates had other things in mind.  Behind Chris Sands' first place finish in the 200-yard butterfly, and the 400-yard relay team of Mitchell Ongstad, Kyle Berg, Alec Kruse and Shea O'Shea's careful third place finish in the meet's final race, the Pirates claimed the WSC crown for their head coach, the team's 11th title in 12 years.   READ MORE...
