Foundation and Organization Founded in 1916 as a department of Sacramento High School, Sacramento City College is the seventh oldest public community college in California and the oldest institution of higher learning in Sacramento. Sacramento City College has a proud history as a pioneer in the region for diversity, quality education, and community partnership. Rare for its time, SCC was founded by a woman (Belle Cooledge) and with an all female class as its first graduates, the college began with the spirit of inclusion at its very heart. First known as Sacramento Junior College, Cooledge founded the college to provide a safe, welcoming place for students to learn the basics for a college education, and to be a gathering spot for extra-curricular activities that would bring the community together. With this founding principle, Sacramento Junior College opened in 1916 on the top floor of Sacramento High School with 46 students and 16 part-time instructors. The college eventually gained its own campus at the corner of Sutterville and Freeport where it opened its doors to students in 1926. The campus consisted of just two buildings at the time. Thirty-eight years later, Sacramento City College separated from the Sacramento City Unified School District to join the newly organized Los Rios Junior College District Now known as the Los Rios Community College District, Sacramento City is one of four sister colleges in the greater Sacramento area. SCC has grown by leaps and bounds in many ways. Now, nearly 100 years later, SCC has certainly evolved with the times, but at its heart the college vision remains the same: to create a learning community that celebrates diversity, nurtures personal growth, and inspires academic and economic leadership.

His on-field duties included running the offense and coaching third base for one of the premier Connie Mack programs on the East Coast. One former player was Pittsburgh Pirates #1 overall pick Pedro Alvarez. In the summer of 2005, he coached with the Lafayette (CA) Generals and assumed the same on-field duties for one of Northern California’s best summer baseball programs. He returned to the coach for the Panthers after playing for SCC and Hall of Fame coach, Andy McKay, in 2001 and 2002, reaching the Final Four in both years.

5-Time State Champions 1988 State Champions Weinstein’s Panthers captured the third state championship after going through the loser’s bracket at the state tournament and defeating top-ranked Rancho Santiago twice to win the title. The Panthers finished 46-10 and were led by CNC Player of the Year F.P. Santangelo, who led the state with 45 stolen bases. Santangelo currently plays for the San Francisco Giants. On April 28, 1988, the Panthers won the first game played in partially completed Union Stadium, clinching their eighth straight CNC championship. Weinstein was named National Community College Coach of the Year.

1998 State and National Champions The 1998 Panther baseball team posted a dominating record of 44-2 in winning the second state championship under Jerry Weinstein and the fourth in school history. The leam lost the second game of the season and didn’t lose again until the second game of the playoffs--a streak of 37 straight wins. They swept through the rest of the playoffs, defeating Saddleback in the final game. Pitcher Mike Neu posted a record of 15-0, the most wins in school history without a defeat. Matt Riley, a freshman who posted an 8-1 record, signed after the season with the Baltimore Orioles for a junior college record signing bonus of $790,000.

1999 State Champions The 1999 team completed the rare repeat when first-year coach Andy McKay guided the Panthers after Coach Weinstein resigned to take a job with the L.A. Dodgers organization. After sweeping through the playoffs, the team found itself needing to win the final 2 games to claim the championship. After winning the first gane, SCC trailed by one run in the bottom of the ninth inning of the final. After telling McKay that he was going to win a championship, shortstop Joe Thurston smacked a 2-run double with 2 outs for the come-from-behind win, and the Panthers were able to dogpile for the second straight year.
