So much for taking a break from participating in the Pacific League. Four of the league's eight baseball teams - including Crescenta Valley High and Glendale - will be a part of the 47th installment of the four-day Babe Herman Tournament, which will begin Saturday and run through Wednesday across venues from Glendale to the San Fernando Valley to the Inland Empire. The Falcons and Nitros will be joined by league members Pasadena and Arcadia in the 14-team tournament.

GLENDALE — Things are really coming together for the San Gabriel Valley 16-18 Babe Ruth All-Stars, both on the field and off. Set to open play in the Babe Ruth 16-18 World Series in Moses Lake, Wash. against Baxter (Tenn.) at 2 p.m. on Sunday, San Gabriel Valley is playing solid baseball and becoming more of a team and less of a collection of players cobbled together with little more in common than their talent. “After the [Southern California] tournament, we had only had two practices and three games together,” said All-Stars’ catcher and Crescenta Valley High senior Joe Sedano, one of nine Falcons on San Gabriel Valley’s World Series roster.

Seeking to snap a string of five consecutive losing seasons, the Glendale Community College football team accomplished that feat this season backed by a bevy of talented players on both sides of the line of scrimmage. It resulted in the Vaqueros going 6-4, 4-3 in the American Division Pacific Conference to tie for third place and securing their first winning campaign since 2007, when they competed in the Western State Conference's South Division. Glendale's rise could be partly attributed to the contributions made each game by Noche Nwofer, Marquise McGuire and Jaelin Rising-Barnwell, all of whom were bestowed with state recognition, with Nwofer adding the biggest honor, as he was named an All-American, as well.

Maybe a change of routine will be just what the Glendale Community College football needs to get out of the blocks quickly this season. The Vaqueros' schedule will once again force them to navigate a Pacific Conference American Division that remains largely unchanged from last season, but Glendale will get started against a new trio of nonconference foes. Gone are Pasadena City College, Golden West and East Los Angeles, who went a combined 6-0 against Glendale over the past two seasons.

CULVER CITY - It wasn't easy, but the Glendale Community College football team got it done. Down four on the road at West Los Angeles College, Vaqueros quarterback Sean Murphy found tight end Tanner Mays on an out route off of play action for the go-ahead touchdown strike from three yards out with about 29 seconds left. PHOTOS: Glendale College vs. West L.A. College football “It scared me,” Murphy said. “I thought I overthrew him, but luckily he has long arms and he got it.” Glendale held on to defeat West L.A., 24-21, to keep the Wildcats winless, while snapping an 11-game American Division Pacific Conference losing streak of its own. GCC, which lost to the Wildcats, 41-6, at home last season, improved to 3-3 overall, 1-2 in conference.

It appears the Glendale Community College football team is in prime position to snap another losing streak Saturday. Coming into a game against a winless West Los Angeles College squad, the Vaqueros are poised to win their first American Division Pacific Conference contest in 12 games. Still, Glendale Coach John Rome knows his team is in no position to take anything for granted. “[West LA] is 0-5, but they probably think if there's a game they can win it's going to be this week,” said Rome, whose team has lost its last two games and is 2-3, 0-1 in conference coming off a bye week.

Glendale Community College sophomore linebacker Noche Nwofer was named on Tuesday the Pacific Conference Defensive Player of the Week for his efforts Saturday. Nwofer collected three tackles and returned an interception for a touchdown in Glendale's 41-6 nonconference home victory against San Diego Mesa on Saturday, which improved the Vaqueros record to 2-1 and marked the team's second home victory in as many tries. “It means a lot to win this award, but it's even better that we won,” said Nwofer, who has totaled 15 tackles, two sacks and two interceptions this season.
