NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? For the members of the Glendale Community College men?s tennis team, they suffered more than just a 9-0 season-opening nonconference loss to visiting Cerritos College on Thursday afternoon. Hence, it?s likely a season opener the Vaqueros would just as soon like to forget. The Vaqueros, who finished second in the Western State Conference last season, also lost No. 1 singles player Emanuel Haug to an apparent right-knee injury. Haug, a freshman from Germany, had to retire early in the second set against Cerritos College?

Glendale Community College track and field Coach Eddie Lopez is basically conceding any thought of a team title when the Vaqueros women take to the Cerritos College track for the 2012 California Community College Track and Field Championships. "Laney [College] is going to win it, but as the other teams cancel each other out, we're going to be right there for second or third with Cerritos and Antelope Valley," Lopez said. "Every point counts. We start with the 10K, get some places there.

Hamlet Nalbandyan NORWALK -- Janelle Del Soldato raised her fist in the air and jumped for joy for a reason after the 800 meters at the CIF Southern Section Track and Field Championships. The Crescenta Valley High senior's 2 minute 12.4-second time in the event not only put her atop the school's record books, but put her among the elite in Southern California. Del Soldato finished third in the girls' Division I race, but she could have easily been a CIF champion.

As the skies darkened with gray clouds over Southern California, runners and fielders at the 2008 Track and Field Masters at Cerritos College in Norwalk welcomed the cooler May temperatures. Amid the wet conditions last week, three local track-and-fielders weathered the dark, murky skies to qualify for the CIF State Prelims on May 30. Crescenta Valley?s Zack Torres qualified for the premiere track and field event in the state, finishing eighth in the boys? 3,200 meter race. By virtue of finishing with the fourth best time among Div. I runners, Torres will move on to the State Prelims on May 30 at Cerritos College.

PASADENA -- History would be made at Robinson Stadium on Saturday night, as the Pasadena City College football team hosted Cerritos College.  It would not be the kind of history that Lancers Coach Fred Fimbres wants to remember, as the Falcons defeated the Lancers, 65-14. This loss goes down as the biggest deficit, 51 points, at Robinson Stadium.  It would also be the most points, 65, given up by the Lancers in the stadium's history.  Robinson Stadium was built in 1999. “Any loss is a tough loss,” Fimbres said.

The following are updates on local athletes at the collegiate level. Nick Dragovich (Crescenta Valley High, 2010) Chapman basketball senior: Thanks in big part to the efforts of Dragovich, Chapman snapped a three-game losing skid and survived for a 65-64 win on Wednesday over La Verne in Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play. Dragovich garnered his third double-double of the season in scoring 12 points and pulling down 10 rebounds. Chapman improved to 9-6 with the win and evened out at 3-3 in conference as it was set to host Occidental in a conference tilt Saturday evening.

GLENDALE - Even though Glendale High senior Michael Davis has made a name for himself in short sprints, this weekend the Nitros runner will conclude a long and dominant four-year run at the 95th annual CIF State Track and Field Championships at Clovis Buchanan High. Davis, the Pacific League champion in both the 100-meter and 200-meter dashes, is slated to compete in Friday's state 200 preliminaries, set to begin at 8:50 p.m. Davis enters with the state's sixth-best seeded mark of 21.42 seconds, which was gained at Friday's CIF Southern Section Masters Meet at Cerritos College.

Talk of what has been accomplished will transform into discussion about what needs to be achieved for the locals who punched their ticket to the CIF Southern Section Track and Field Masters Meet at Cerritos College in Norwalk on Friday. Seven local schools, which participated in dozens of league meets and invitationals, produced three Masters qualifiers in St. Francis High's Caleb Simmeth, Glendale's Michael Davis and Crescenta Valley's Megan Melnyk. The goals for each may differ in importance, but include producing a new personal-best time, while earning either a top-six finish or an at-large mark to be able to move on to the following week's CIF State Meet in Clovis.

Somewhere between uncertainty and faith is where Crescenta Valley High sophomore Megan Melnyk finds herself. The La Crescenta resident is one of three local athletes who qualified to Friday night's prestigious CIF Southern Section Track and Field Masters Meet at Cerritos College in Norwalk. Melnyk is slated to participate in the girls' 800-meter run at 7:22 p.m., either hoping to garner a top-six finish or hit the at-large qualifying mark of 2 minutes, 12.10 seconds to advance to the following week's season-ending CIF State Track and Field Championships at Clovis Buchanan High on May 31 and June 1. Ask Melnyk how she punched her ticket to the Masters Meet and her answer is part fact, part fable.

WALNUT - While Saturday afternoon marked the conclusion of the season for the majority of local competitors, Glendale High's Michael Davis, Crescenta Valley's Megan Melnyk and St. Francis' Caleb Simmeth proved themselves masters of advancing at the CIF Southern Section Divisional Track and Field Championships at Mt. San Antonio College. All three competitors qualified to the following week's Masters Meet at Cerritos College by posting a qualifying finish. Maybe there was no surprise that Davis, a state qualifier, would advance in the 200-meter run. The BYU-bound senior recovered from a disappointing effort in the 100 by finishing second in Division I in the 200 with a mark of 21.39 seconds.

Qualifying to Saturday's CIF Southern Section Track and Field Divisional Championships at Mt. San Antonio College required the local entrants who earned such advancement to turn in very good results at last weekend's divisional prelims all over Southern California. This weekend, however, the bar will be raised from very good to exceptional. Of course, that's to be expected as divisional championships and CIF-Southern Section Masters Meet berths are on the line with the trip to Cerritos College available for the top 12 finishers in the 800-meter, 1,600-meter and 3,200-meter runs and top nine in every other event.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - A small bounce proved the difference between winning and a continuing slide for the Glendale Community College men's basketball team Friday afternoon. A fall-away five-foot jumper from sophomore wing Mike Johnson agonizingly bounced twice on the rim, but failed to score as time expired, allowing visiting Cerritos College to steal a 71-70 overtime victory in nonconference play. “We competed hard and we've just got to do a better job of understanding time circumstances and conditions of the game,” Vaqueros Coach Brian Beauchemin said.
