In 1982 his squad was runner up in the CIF finals played at Dodger Stadium.
Andy moved up to the NCAA Division II level the following year, becoming head coach at California State University at Dominguez Hills, in Carson. His teams clinched three conference championships and finished third place in the 1987 College World Series.
