HEAD COACH: AL WALKER

EMAIL: al.walker1@verizon.net or al.walker1.aw@gmail.com

Al Walker is serving as the head girls’ basketball coach for the third time.  He first joined the Rio Mesa Coaching Staff in May of 1989.  He was a walk-on coach who at the time was employed by the Ventura County Probation Agency.  He maintained his position at the helm of the program for eight seasons before his work schedule prevented him from continuing in that capacity.  During that time, he was able to develop the program into a contender in the very competitive Channel League.  His teams annually qualified for the CIF Playoffs.  Additionally, he had the pleasure of coaching several athletes that went on to compete at various collegiate levels.

In 2000, Coach Walker returned to Rio Mesa, but resigned the position after one season to join the coaching staff at Oxnard College.  He remained at OC for three seasons as the assistant women’s basketball coach and for five more as the head coach.  All the while he continued his career with the Probation Agency.  Coach Walker stated that Oxnard College was an interesting challenge; however, it made him appreciate the high school level more.  He always shared with, Athletic Director, Brian Fitzgerald, that he wished to return to Rio Mesa upon his retirement from county service.

In 2012, the opportunity presented itself, as Tim Murray resigned as the coach and Walker was hired for the third time to lead the program.  He retired from the Probation Agency in December of that year.  Three years later, the program experienced great success from frosh/soph to varsity as during the 2014 – 2015, season all three teams went undefeated in Pacific View League competition and accumulated at least 19 wins each.  The varsity team (22-7) advanced to the quarter finals of the CIF Playoffs before suffering a disappointing loss.

Coach Walker is from Midland, PA where he attended Lincoln High School.   He was a member of two state championship basketball teams in three seasons while at Lincoln High.  After high school he served in the US Navy before relocating to Oxnard.  He graduated from Oxnard College then transferred to California State University, Northridge before accepting a position with the Probation Agency.
