NORTHEAST GLENDALE — With their last match of the year in front of the them, the Lady Vaqueros of the Glendale Community College women’s volleyball team certainly didn’t come out Tuesday evening like a team winless in conference play. They didn’t end it like one, either. But, inevitably, that was the case, as a spirited effort by the Vaqueros fell short against second-place Bakersfield College in a Western State Conference match at Glendale college, as the Renegades rallied for a 25-30, 30-26, 30-21, 30-23 win. “No, I wasn’t surprised,” said Bakersfield Coach Carl Ferreira of how the Vaqueros came out. “[Glendale college Coach]

GLENDALE — Running the gauntlet of one ranked, stacked opponent after another from week to week has begun to play out like a recurring bad dream for the Glendale Community College, but it’s simply the reality of playing in the Northern Conference National Division. The Vaqueros (3-3) have suffered two tough, close losses so far in conference play and have their work cut out once again today when arguably their strongest opponent so far, Bakersfield College, visits Sartoris Field for a 6 p.m. kickoff.

All of their final five remaining divisional matches will be the determining factor if they qualify for the Southern California Regionals in April.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — The members of the Glendale Community College men’s tennis team won’t be participating in the Southern California Regionals, but there’s still the Western State Conference Tournament at hand.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — For the first time in two seasons, the Glendale Community College women’s golf team hosted a Western State Conference home match at Oakmont Country Club. That proved to be the best news for the Vaqueros, who then proceeded to shoot a 524 to place fourth in a five-team match on Monday afternoon. Oakmont’s course underwent extensive renovations throughout last year, including shoring up the irrigation, bunkers, fairways and more. The renovations and numerous practice rounds didn’t do much good for the Vaqueros (2-10)

GLENDALE - When asked his expectations for the 2014 men's and women's track and field season, Eddie Lopez, Glendale Community College's 27-year coach, paused ever so briefly before racing to give an answer. “We're trying to get a trophy,” Lopez said. “Over the years, we've been close, especially with the women's side at state. We've been fifth or sixth, maybe fourth, but we've not been higher, we've just missed a top-three finish. So, that's our goal this year.” In terms of numbers, the Vaqueros women's team is on the smaller side with about 22 athletes before Friday's season-opening meet at Bakersfield College.

GLENDALE - A frustrating first half of missed short-range field goals turned into a successful and opportunistic second half for the Glendale Community College men's basketball team. The Vaqueros continued their strong play this season due to an improved offensive effort over Wednesday evening's final 20 minutes of Western State Conference South Division play, which translated into a 69-59 victory over visiting Bakersfield College. “We were 10 for 32 in the first half and about 12 to 15 of those shots came inside.

If it's to indeed be the final season coaching the Glendale Community College men's tennis team, then Bob MacKay is confident he might have his best squad in tact since taking over the program in 2003. MacKay, who said he will likely retire following the 2014 season, hasn't normally carried more than around 10 players on a team in each of his previous seasons. He's about to make an exception after heading down the recruiting trail and netting several former local high school players to help fill out the budding roster.

Since Bob MacKay took over as coach of the Glendale Community College men's tennis team in 2003, he's never fielded an all-freshman squad. That will change this season, and it's left MacKay eagerly examining the program's prospects of players, who hail from Glendale to Latin America to Asia. “We are excited because of all the different challenges that we face,” said MacKay, whose team will begin its season at 2 p.m. Friday with a nonconference home match against Mount San Antonio College.
