Lorraine M. Smith
Interim Athletic Director
Phone: (559) 244-2604
Welcome to Fresno City College Athletics. As the interim Athletic Director, I would like to express how extremely proud I am to offer our 500+ student/athletes a professional and experienced coaching staff as well as superior athletic training and academic support programs.
In 2012, the FCC Athletic Department received the inaugural crowning achievement in college athletics, the Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup which honors institutions maintaining a broad-based program, achieving success in many sports, both men’s and women’s. The award began in 1993-94 for Division I by NACDA and USA Today, it was expanded in 1995-96 to include Division II, III and the NAIA. In 2012, the community college division was added.
Fresno City College has added this national all-sports award to the overall state title it won for its performance in championship events for the 2011-12 school year. The Rams earned the inaugural Directors’ Cup, after taking home state championships in wrestling, men’s basketball and men’s tennis.
Each institution is awarded points in a pre-determined number of sports for men and women.
This award is a great achievement for our college and our athletes and the whole community can take pride in the quality of athletic programs at FCC. This quality is a result of our dedicated coaching staff, generous donors and the partnerships we have with the high school athletic programs in the central valley.
We value excellence on the field, in the classroom, and also in the community. As the first community college in California, we believe in giving back by providing a quality program and maintaining a tradition that is so valued by the college and its alumni.
We hope that this web site will provide you with all the athletic information and answers you need, but much like our athletic program, we are constantly striving to improve. Your suggestions and recommendations as to how we might enhance the site are always welcome. Thank you for visiting the Fresno City College Athletic Department web site.
Come back often!
