Pickler, in his 27th year directing the Chargers, has led Cypress to four state championships (1991, 1994, 1997, 2003) and four runner-up finishes (1996, 1999, 2004, 2007). Pickler, who served as a coach for the 1995 USA Baseball National Trials, has a career winning percentage of .671 (825-4044).

2011 SEASON PREVIEW

The competition to perform should bring the best out of each player.

W

e reached the Super Regionals again in 2010; hopefully we can play one more weekend in 2011. For us to play that extra weekend our youth and inexperience will have to grow up quick. We have a good mix of freshman and sophomores and we feel good about our club regarding work ethic and chemistry. The competition to perform should bring the best out of each player. Coach Cameron was impressed with our Fall saying, “They got after it this Fall and learned to compete.” We will have a couple sophomores that will have to step up and take leadership roles starting with Bryan Aanderud who played a lot for us as a freshman on a sophomore dominated squad. He is a young man who gives us a lot of versatility in the infield, can play some outfield, and hits in the middle of our lineup. Joey Boney will be a key to our success as he will play in the middle of the diamond; hopefully he will live up to the excellence of many former Cypress shortstops. At first base there is a competition between redshirt freshman Jake Clark from Norco high school and Jordan Geiger. Both kids will see time on the mound as well. At second base we feel really good about Robert Chavarria from Marina High School. He is a guy who can really hit, has a very good glove, and makes our lineup better. Chavarria will be pushed by a kid from Cherry Creek High School in Colorado named Max

Price who has shown the coaching staff that he can play at our level and Wade McConnon a tough baseball player. At third base we have a talented freshman from Orange Lutheran named Willie Shaw. He is competing with Aanderud but will help us out in a big way this year wherever he plays and fits in to our lineup.

As it is every year in the Orange Empire Conference, it is going to come down to seeing if our inexperience matures through the ups and the downs that the OEC creates throughout the year. Ultimately it will come down to pitching, defense, and timely hitting. We feel that with the way our players worked this fall and bought in to our system on the field, in the classroom and in the weight room we should be competitive in the prestigious Orange Empire Conference. - Scott Pickler

2010 OEC REVIEW

T

he Orange Empire Conference was again one of the most competitive in the state in 2010 as the OEC finished the regular season second in conference RPI rankings in California slightly below the Big 8. Santa Ana took the conference championship after a three-way tie in 2009. Cypress dropped from their 2009 OEC first place finish to third, a game behind second place Golden West with a 13-8 conference record.

Orange Empire teams made a strong showing in the playoffs as four OEC teams made it to playoffs (Cypress, Santa Ana, Golden West, Orange Coast) and two moved on to Super Regional play (Cypress and Santa Ana). The OEC battled it out in the playoffs but none were able to advance to the State Final Four Tournament. This was the first year since 1992 that the OEC was absent from the Final Four. The OEC has produced 16 State Champions over the past 19 seasons. Cypress, Riverside, and Orange Coast lead the way with four state crowns (Cypress: 1991, 1994, 1997, 2003; Riverside: 2000, 2001, 2002, 2007; Orange Coast: 1956, 1960, 1980, 2009) while Santa Ana (1993, 1995, 1996) is right behind them with three. Saddleback captured its first state crown in 2004 by defeating Cypress.
