GLENDALE ? So much for being overly concerned about playing so many freshmen. In a perfect world, Glendale Community College men?s basketball Coach Brian Beauchemin would like to have an equal blend of freshmen and sophomores on the floor. He doesn?t have that luxury right now, but it hasn?t seemed to matter so far in the postseason. Beauchemin will look for his first-year athletes to carry the Vaqueros to another playoff road victory at 7 p.m. today, when 18th-seeded Glendale college (17-15)

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — From a distance, it looked like the same script. That’s not such a good omen for the Glendale Community College team, which opened its season Monday night with a 2-0 nonconference home loss to Fullerton College at Sartoris Field. The Vaqueros, who won just one match last season, couldn’t generate any offense and had two defensive breakdowns that resulted in goals. Basically, the same recipe that spoiled their season in 2006. Fullerton, which looked sharp from the opening whistle, got a goal and an assist from freshman midfielder Jose Preciado.

Saro Sarkisian NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Coming off one of its best seasons under Coach Dyan Miller, the Glendale Community College women's basketball team hoped to begin the new campaign where it left off last year. The Vaqueros got one of their first real tests of the season against Fullerton College in the opening round of the Third Annual Vaquero Shootout, and GCC looked like a team that was missing a lot. The Vaqueros committed 37 turnovers and shot 14 of 55 from the field, as they were defeated by Hornets, 83-44, Friday at home.

Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE -- Getting to Hawaii was half the battle. Now that that's done, all that's left for the members of the Glendale Community College women's basketball team is to play ball. And to focus on playing ball. "They're very excited, only two of the girls have ever been to Hawaii," GCC Coach Dyan Miller said. "So they're all anticipating the greatness of Hawaii. I just have to keep reminding them that we're playing basketball."

Awards were the furthest thing from the mind of Angel Rodriguez during his first season with the Glendale Community College baseball team. The Vaqueros' ace pitcher can no longer ignore them now that the season's over. He hauled in his second honor with Glendale college in the form of being selected to the All-Southern California team. "To be honest, I really had no clue about this award. My intentions weren't so much in getting the awards," said Rodriguez of his mind set this season.

FULLERTON - Timely hitting throughout the order and reliable relief pitching have been staples of Glendale Community College baseball success this season. On Friday afternoon, however, they were the Vaqueros' undoing. GCC stranded 13 base runners and its bullpen allowed two runs, as the Vaqueros lost to Palomar, 3-2, in the opening game of the Fullerton Super Regional of the CCCAA tournament at Fullerton College. "We really didn't play our game," said Vaqueros Coach Chris Cicuto, whose team will now play either El Camino Compton Saturday morning at 10 a.m. at Santa Ana College, hoping to move on and into another elimination game Saturday afternoon at Fullerton.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — The first time the Glendale Community College women’s basketball team fell behind by double-digits on Saturday night, it was able to play its way back into the game. No such luck the second time around, however, as a Fullerton College run to close the first half turned into a second-half landslide, burying the Vaqueros, 69-42, in the semifinal round of the Vaquero Shootout at Glendale college. “We just didn’t hold our composure,” said Glendale Coach Monica Hang, whose team was led in scoring by freshman guard Chelsea Baqueiro, a Hoover High graduate, with 15 points.

GLENDALE — Not too far from the court, Glendale Community College men’s tennis Coach Bob MacKay could see the pattern continuing. It’s a pattern that’s worked out well for MacKay’s doubles team of Paul Nagapetyan and Marko Gortinski — fall behind early before rallying to win a tiebreaker. That’s exactly what happened to the tandem Thursday afternoon. Nagapetyan and Gortinski came back to post a 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 (8-6) win against Eric Lu and JP Arreglado of Mount San Antonio College in a second round match of the Southern California Regional Individuals Tournament at Long Beach City College.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — A balanced scoring attack wasn’t necessarily expected, but it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Glendale Community College women’s basketball team. The young Vaqueros are expected by Coach Monica Hang to be a work in progress throughout the first month of the season with seven freshmen on board. But four of those freshmen scored 16 points apiece Thursday night to carry Glendale college to an 84-71 season-opening victory against Cerritos College in a first-round game of the Vaquero Shootout.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — In the aftermath of their season-opening debacle, the members of the Glendale Community College men’s soccer team needed to grasp the fundamentals before they got too down on themselves. It certainly couldn’t hurt the Vaqueros, who had won just three matches the previous two seasons combined to get back to the basics. Apparently, the Vaqueros got the message and it translated well in their home opener Tuesday night. Glendale college got a balanced scoring attack and played aggressive defense to post a 3-1 nonconference victory against L.A. Harbor College at Sartoris Field.

GLENDALE ? Since a disastrous 2006 campaign that ended with a 1-19-2 record, rapid improvement has been the main objective of the Glendale Community College men?s soccer team. The Vaqueros? progress in that department was minimal in 2007, as inexperience and lack of offensive firepower again frustrated the squad to the tune of a 2-16-4 mark. So what are the prospects of a more definitive turnaround for the beleaguered program this season? ?To be honest, it looks promising,?
