Clark College Penguins Name New Baseball Coach

VANCOUVER, Wash.—Clark College has named Mark Magdaleno as the Interim Head Baseball Coach. Magdaleno takes over as the Penguins are preparing to begin practice for the upcoming season.

“Mags” takes the helm after serving as the associate head baseball coach since he was hired in August. He has spent 32 years coaching baseball at the high school and college level and most recently was on staff at Ventura College (CA) where he began his career in 1983. Mark has extensive coaching experience in California and throughout the west. Andy Moore, Mick Ellett, and Jesse Villanueva continue to serve as assistant coaches for the team. 

Director of Athletics Ann Walker feels fortunate to have Mark and his staff leading the baseball team. “There is great energy in our baseball program right now and that is a tribute to Mags and his assistant coaches.  I am confident, through his leadership, our young men will achieve great successes, enjoy a sport they love playing, and will represent the program and athletic department in a manner we can all be proud of.  I look forward to working with him and his staff and watching the team compete this spring.”

Clark College opens up the 2016 season on Tuesday, March 1 against Linfield College at home.
