Previous College: Cal State Fullerton '04
Position: Assistant Coach (2nd Season)

Former Cal State Fullerton All-American and "Jill-of-all-Trades" Gina Oaks returns to her alma mater and takes to the bench for her first season as an assistant coach under Head Coach Michelle Gromacki in 2006.

Oaks spent the 2005 season as an assistant coach at Azusa Pacific University, helping the Cougars to a 32-16 overall record and a 10-14 mark (fifth place) in the NAIA's Golden State Athletic Conference. She then spent the summer on the roster of the Chicago Bandits of National Pro Fastpitch, helping her sqaud to a championship runner-up finish.

In 2004, she was a member of the NPF Champion New York/New Jersey Juggernaut and a member of the NPF East All-Star squad, finishing the year ranked tied for fourth in the league in pitching victories (12) and allowing just 26 earned runs in 131-plus innings (1.39 ERA). She held opponents to a .169 batting average.

A member of numerous U.S. National Teams, Oaks won a gold medal at the prestigious Canada Cup in 2003 with the USA Elite Team and earned silver medals with the Elite team in 2002 and 2005. She also participated with the Elite Team in the 2005 Intercontinental Cup in Madrid, Spain, and the 2003 Pacific Challenge vs. Australia.

Oaks played four stellar seasons for the Titans from 2000-03, earning All-America honors from the NFCA as a utility player following her junior and senior seasons. She is one of only four players in the history of the Titans' program to become a four-time All-Big West Conference honoree, including earning first-team honors her sophomore through senior seasons. Oaks was the first player in the history of the Big West Conference to be named to the first team at two different positions in 2002 (pitcher and third base) and repeated the feat as a senior (pitcher and utility).

A career .295 hitter, Oaks ranks among the school's career top 10 in 10 different categories, including holding the school's career record for runs scored (150) and ranking second in career hit by pitches (29). She had her best season in terms of average as a freshman, hitting .313 with 26 runs scored, four home runs and 18 RBI, but watched as her numbers in all other categories steadily improved, hitting .301 as a junior to go along with career-high's in runs scored (52), doubles (13), and home runs (10) en route to All-America honors. In her All-America senior season, Oaks hit .284 in a lineup that set seven different offensive team records and led the Big West Conference in nine different major offensive categories.

In the circle, Oaks was equally dominant, ranking among Fullerton's all-time winningest pitchers with a 74-23 all-time record and ranks ninth with a .763 winning percentage. Her best season came as a junior when she went 22-4 with a 0.73 ERA, giving her the fifth-best single-season winning percentage in school history and ranking seventh in the nation in ERA that season. She also won the pitchers version of the "triple crown" that season, leading the team in ERA, victories, and strikeouts (189). In fact, Oaks led the team in strikeouts in each of her first three collegiate seasons while leading the team in wins as a sophomore and junior.

Oaks ranks among the school's career pitching leaders in 10 different categories including strikeouts (4th - 685), opponent batting average (6th - .184), most strikeouts per seven innings (3rd - 7.69), victories (4th), saves (t4th - 4), complete games (t3rd - 72), and shutouts (8th - 25).

Born on May, 11, 1981, in Duarte, Calif., Oaks prepped at Rancho Cucamonga HS where she was a four-year letter winner in both softball and soccer. She was twice named to the All-CIF squad and was a four-time all-league selection. Her national team experience started early as she was a member of the U.S. Junior National Team that won a silver medal at a tournament in Taiwan.

Oaks graduated from Cal State Fullerton in 2004 with a degree in kinesiology. Her parents are Bob and Irene Oaks of Rancho Cucamonga, and she has an older brother, Bobby.
