Athletics[edit]

The school teams are the Scorpions. ACHS has produced star athletes, including Randy Elliott 1969 1st round draft pick [1] and the first overall pick of the 2003 MLB Draft, Delmon Young, USA Olympic GOLD Medalist Jessica Mendoza, and multi-sport collegiate star Joe Borchard.

The Scorpions have two CIF-SS champion football teams in their history. In 1984, the Camarillo Scorpions football team won the CIF Southern Section championship in the Los Angeles Coliseum over Ventura High School. In 1996, ACHS beat Notre Dame High School of Sherman Oaks with future Oakland Raiders star Justin Fargas 20-16.

In 1991, Camarillo's softball team won CIF against Buena to mark the first ever championship for the program.

The school hosts the Camarillo Classic, a two-day invitational track-and-field event, every March. It attracts dozens of teams from all over Southern California.[2]
