RECENT PCC ATHLETIC HISTORY

For the past several years Pasadena City College’s Athletics has seen tremendous progress since the building of the campus’ athletic complex (GM Building) in 1999.

This includes Robinson Stadium (the football site named in honor of two great sports icons, Jackie and Mack Robinson), Hutto-Patterson Gymnasium, and the Aquatic Center. PCC also hosts the renovated Sports Hall of Fame (wall of plaques on the first floor of the GM Building) and Court of Champions, an array of bronze busts of famous PCC alumni, located just outside of the GM.

In 2006, an artificial turf surface (SprinTurf) was added to Robinson Stadium for football and soccer games and in 2009 a new track was fitted. Renovations have been done on off-campus fields for both Brookside Park's Jackie Robinson Memorial Field and the auxiliary diamonds for baseball and softball, respectively.

  • The women's basketball team captured its first-ever CCCAA State Championship in March and has reached the Elite Final Eight tournament each of the last seven seasons. The program also finished state runner-up in 2004 and 2005. The program won four SCC titles between 1997-2003 and was a co-champion in 2005 and 2007. In 2008-2009, point guard and state tourney MVP Kinyada Johnson smashed the college's career points and assists records. Melia Basavand is the new season/career 3-point baskets record holder after leading the state in long-range baskets. The State Player of the Year has emerged from PCC three times in Jeanine Deno (2006-2007), Dionne Pounds (2004-2005), and Tiana Sanders (1998-1999). Head Coach Joe Peron was named South Coast Conference Women's Coach of the Year for the 2008-2009 sports year.
  • In 2009, the women's volleyball team went undefeated in conference to win its first-ever South Coast Conference championship (16-0). It was awarded the No. 1 seed in the  Southern California Regional Playoffs. Outside hitter Patti Blasco and setter Jessica Xu were named All-State and Head Coach Tammy Silva named Southern California Coach of the Year and AVCA 2-Year Colleges Nationall Coach of the Year.
  • In 2009, women's cross country runner Tracee van der Wyk finished 4th at the CCCAA State Meet and placed 3rd at the South Coast Conference Championships, the highest individual placings by a Lancer harrier in the program's history.
  • In 2008, PCC track and field leaper Chris Hicks won the state high jump title. In 2007, Edino Steele became the first Lancer men's track and field runner to win four state meet events (200, 400, and a member of both the 4x100 and 4x400 relay teams).
  • In 2007-2008, Harold Cleveland led the state in scoring and became just the 11th men's player to score 1,000 points in his PCC career. In 2008-2009, Corey Caston set season/career school records for most assists and ChaRunn Jones set the school's new 3-point baskets record for one season. The men’s basketball team finished in the state Final 16 in 2003-2004, and won its only South Coast Conference title in the 1999-2000 season.
  • In 2008, the football team captured the Tremblay Bowl championship, defeating Southwestern College, 45-14. In 2006-2007, quarterback David Pittman broke all of the school's passing records, including most yards, most completions, touchdowns, and highest completion percentage in a game, season, career. Pittman gained a scholarship at the University of Minnesota. Utah's David Reed (see below) set the national record for most receptions and receiving yards in a season (111 for 1,661 yards in '07) and was named All-American First Team. In 2001-2002, the football team won its first-ever Mission Conference championship and played in back-to-back postseason bowl games.
  • In 2008, men's soccer player Malcolm Linton set a school record for most assists in a season with 19. The men's soccer team made a trip to the State Final Four (finished third) in 2002, and won three straight conference championships from 1999-2001 before picking up a fourth SCC title in 2004.
  • In 2007, Nick Lao and Keisuke Yagi became the first PCC swimmers in 16 years to win a state meet event. Yagi won state events in back-to-back seasons ('07-08), the first swimmer to pull off the feat since 1978. In 2010, Sharif Alaoui won the 200-yard freestyle state title, following Tai Nuntapramote winning the 2009 state title in the 200-butterfly. Between the four swimmers, PCC has had an athlete named SCC Swimmer of the Year in each of the last five seasons. The women's swimming and diving team won its first-ever SCC title in 2003. In 2010, Merry Sanders was SCC Diver of the Year after winning the 1-meter and 3-meter events.
  • The women's badminton team won its first-ever Southern California Regional Championship after clinching its seventh conference title in 2010. Hutto-Patterson Gymnasium, the badminton home arena, is the host site for the 2010 CCCAA State Championship Tournament. Iris Xu won the  SCC singles title and she teamed with JK Nguyen-Le to win the college's third staight conference individual coubles crown.
