Glendale Community College 6, Bakersfield College 3: The Vaqueros bounced back from a loss last weekend with an impressive road victory to kick off Western State Conference play on Tuesday afternoon.

“This was a dominant performance and an overall great day at Bakersfield,” Vaqueros Coach Bob MacKay said. “Our effort really paid off in doubles.
