PASCO, Wash. -- Adrian Ochoa is the new head softball coach at Columbia Basin College. Ochoa takes over on an interim basis for the 2011 softball season for Eric Weisgerber who resigned recently for personal reasons.
Ochoa served as an assistant coach for the program for the two previous seasons. Prior to CBC, he was the head coach at Queens University in Charlotte, North Carolina for three years. In 2006, Queens won both the conference regular season and tournament titles, and qualified for the NCAA tournament for the first time in school history. Ochoa was named the Carolina-Virginia Athletic Conference Coach of the Year. He has more than 20 years coaching experience.
In Weisgerber's three years as head coach, the Hawks made the NWAACC tournament once, in 2010.
