GLENDALE - One likely couldn't blame Glendale Community College baseball player Michael Robinson for being a little nervous taking the mound at home Friday night again Compton. It was the sophomore pitcher's first start as a Vaquero. “There was a little bit in the first inning, I'm not going to lie,” Robinson said of nerves. “I didn't want to disappointment my guys on the bench.” Robinson did fine, picking up the victory after allowing one run on six hits, while striking out seven in six innings as Glendale defeated Compton 8-3 at Stengel Field in a nonconference game.

COMPTON — This one might not have been pretty, but it still counts. The Glendale Community College football team won its first Western State Conference Southern Division game in an unattractive fashion against Compton, 14-8, on Saturday at Compton. The two teams combined for just 317 total yards in what turned out to be a battle of the defenses. The Vaqueors (3-0) didn't get much in the form of offense, instead relying on a pair of interceptions, constant quarterback pressure and excellent coverage downfield to secure the victory.

Robert Shaffer ONE FOR THE HEART Compton city officials recently sent out a press release boasting that they had purchased 40 Automatic External Defibrillators, which can save the lives of heart attack victims. The city will put the devices in police and emergency vehicles, parks, and public buildings. Calling Compton the new "heart" of Los Angeles County, the release states the city is leading the way in preventing heart attacks. But several paragraphs down, the claim falls apart.

The Orange Coast College football team's offense has failed to find the end zone in a preseason scrimmage, as well as last week's 11-0 triumph at Santa Barbara. But the Pirates have 59 reasons to believe their scoring slump will end tonight at 5 against visiting Compton. The Tartars were pounded, 59-26, in last week's opener against visiting Santa Ana, which rolled up 434 yards of offense. Backed by a strong and experienced defense that produced a touchdown and a safety in the opener, OCC likely won't need anything close to that kind of production to extend its winning streak to three and open the season 2-0 for the second time in seven seasons under Coach Mike Taylor.

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.

COMPTON - With offense and pitching in their favor, the Arroyo Seco Saints baseball team kick-started the Palomino West Zone Tournament with a nearly flawless 9-0 victory Friday afternoon versus the Lacey Rainiers at the Urban Youth Academy. "We've been playing good baseball and we've played so many games that these kids have grown used to playing with each other," said Arroyo Seco Coach Aaron Milam, the newly named head coach at St. Francis. "We pitched pretty strongly and our bats showed up today.

COMPTON - Arroyo Seco Saints Coach Aaron Milam said his team thrives when it plays on emotion after it won its first game facing elimination Saturday. Milam found out just a few hours later that his team doesn't do well playing angry, as it saw its season end in a 10-0 mercy-rule loss in a much-anticipated and heated rematch with Chinese Taipei in the 2012 Palomino League World Series at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy in Compton. The Saints left a total of seven runners on base (five in scoring position)

COMPTON - As far as frontiers go, there just aren't many places the Arroyo Seco Saints 18U summer baseball team hasn't been, especially in the postseason. Yet, the Saints are in unfamiliar territory as the defending Palomino West Zone champions will have to defend their crown from the consolation bracket, as Arroyo Seco, which includes nine local players, fell in opening-round bracket action, 3-1, to the visiting PAL Giants of San Jose at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy in Compton on Friday afternoon.

COMPTON - With his team celebrating behind him a few minutes after clinching a West Zone Tournament Palomino championship, Arroyo Seco 18U baseball Coach Aaron Milam reflected on the differences between 2012 and 2013. Even though in both seasons Milam's Saints clinched West Zone Tournament crowns and earned berths to the Palomino World Series, there are substantial contrasts. “I think the biggest difference is just having experience in getting to the World Series,” Milam said.

GLENDALE - In search of a positive start to 2013, the Glendale Community College football team looked to open the season with a win over El Camino College Compton Center in consecutive years and end a home losing streak at Sartoris Field that spanned three years and 17 games. After the final whistle, it was done and done on both counts. The Vaqueros received major contributions from a variety of new faces and feasted on eight Tartars turnovers on the way to a 35-7 victory to earn their first victory at home since Nov. 7, 2009.

SANTA ANA - Good-bye hugs were exchanged in right field before a few tears and plenty of beads of sweat were wiped away by many of the members of the Glendale Community College baseball team. It came shortly after the Vaqueros saw their season wrap up Saturday with a 4-3 defeat against El Camino Compton in an elimination contest of the Southern California Fullerton Super Regional at Santa Ana College. “It's a special group of guys,” said Glendale college Coach Chris Cicuto, whose team finished 27-13.

There doesn't figure to be much experience up and down the Glendale Community College men's basketball team roster. As far as Glendale college Coach Brian Beauchemin is concerned, it's not the worst position for the Vaqueros to be in. If anything, Beauchemin is eager to see how most of the 15-member squad - with just three returners - will respond to adapting to the more physical style presented at the collegiate level. “We have a lot of new faces and that's fine,” said Beauchemin, whose team will tip off its season at 3 p.m. Friday against visiting Compton.

"It has been a while since we started out with a victory," Glendale's John Rome, who has been the head coach since 2007 and presided over consecutive 1-9 seasons the last two years, said with a smile on his face.
