The members of the team didn?t stew about the loss, instead opting to hold a team meeting to clear the air and get back on the winning track near the midway point of the campaign.

The Flintridge Prep senior -- who has rarely played for the Rebels this year -- won twice in the CIF singles draw. McCullough defeated Kevin Kordestani of Rancho Santa Margarita Tesoro, 6-3, 6-1, in the first round of the 64-player draw.

GLENDALE - With a squad of just 10 players, the Glendale Community College women's volleyball team is looking at its numbers as a potential positive rather than a detriment. Vaqueros Coach Yvette Ybarra has had more time to devote to her players in preparation for their season opener at 7 p.m. Sept. 4 against host Cypress College. While some coaches might consider it advantageous to carry 13-14 athletes, Ybarra doesn't mind spending the extra time instructing a smaller group. “I'm certainly not uncomfortable having just 10 players,” said Ybarra, whose team went 5-20, 2-10 for sixth place in the tough Western State Conference South Division that included three-time state champion L.A. Pierce.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — After remaining a swing or two away from evening things up for most of the game and confident that the 7-1 final score doesn't quite tell the complete story of Friday afternoon's loss to Cypress College in the California Collegiate Athletic Assn. regional playoffs, the members of the Glendale Community College baseball team are ready to close the book on an underwhelming postseason opener. The Vaqueros could never get much going against Cypress College pitcher Tommy Nance during what remained a pitchers' duel for eight compelling innings before, to cap off the frustrating afternoon, they surrendered five runs in the top of the ninth inning to scuttle their own chances of an 11th-hour rally.
