head Coach - andrea aguilar

Andrea Aguilar is in her fourth year as head coach of the women's basketball program at San Diego City College. In 2014-15, Aguilar led the Knights to their best conference record in the program's history at 9-5, taking third in the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference. It was the most PCAC wins the Knights have ever had in a season and it was also the first time that they've finished with a conference record at or above .600. Aguilar coached the team to a 13-13 overall record in both 2013-14 and 2014-15, which is the best the Knights have done in their history.

Aguilar earned a B.A. in General Studies with a concentration in Mathematics at National University. She completed her Master's in Coaching and Athletic Administration at Concordia University.

Aguilar, a San Diego native, competed in a variety of varsity sports at Eastlake High School in Chula Vista. As a basketball player she developed a love for the game, not only by leading her team as a two-year captain to three consecutive league championships, but by simultaneously coaching junior high and elementary school girls teams. At Eastlake High, Aguilar received numerous League honors and was a two-time Union-Tribune All-Academic League selection.

After high school, Aguilar played collegiate basketball at Southwestern College where she received California JC Scores Player of the Week and Pacific Coast Conference Athlete of the Week in addition to team honors. After red-shirting a year at Cal State Dominguez Hills, Aguilar returned to Chula Vista to teach in the SUHSD. She began coaching girls basketball at her alma mater, Eastlake High, as the Head Jr. Varsity Coach and an assistant to the Varsity team. From 2009-11, she was the Head Women's Varsity Basketball Coach at Olympian High School. All three years, her teams made it to the CIF post season, culminating in 2011 with a trip to the quarterfinals.

Aguilar's goal has been to teach and coach at the Community College level. She is committed to building and maintaining a successful women's basketball program at SDCC and she is looking for committed, hardworking student-athletes who have the desire to excel in the classroom and on the basketball court.
