With berths to the conference semifinals and season-ending Ojai Tournament up for grabs, perhaps there was no bigger competition this season for the Glendale Community College women's tennis team than Saturday's Western State Conference tournament in Ventura. The Vaqueros' success Saturday was led by the stout performance of Glendale's doubles squads. “We definitely had some good play going on,” Vaqueros first-year Coach Deo Sy said. “I was really happy with the doubles teams and my singles players will get ready for Ojai, so it was mostly positive.” Saturday's conference tournament action ended in the quarterfinals with three Glendale doubles teams and two singles players participating in the round.

GLENDALE - For the first time in a longtime, the Glendale Community College baseball team does not find itself at the top of the conference standings at this point in the season. However, despite having to play catch-up, the Vaqueros don't want to look at the big picture and what they need to accomplish during the final five weeks of the season. Instead, Glendale college is taking a more myopic view of its situation and that means looking no farther than its next opponent. That latest opponent Thursday was West L.A. College, a team at the bottom of the Western State Conference South standings.

Glendale Community College educators said this week they are confident they are meeting the demands for the workforce needs of the region. Don Nakamoto, executive director of the Verdugo Workforce Investment Board, told college officials that Los Angeles County officials predict a 3% growth in jobs in the area through 2014. He urged college officials to keep informed on local employers' needs in order to better train students to meet demand. “Without the employers there at the table telling us what their needs are…we're kind of working from the workforce side and education side in a vacuum, pretending to know what employers need,” he said.

GLENDALE - Glendale Community College Coach Chris Cicuto had his philosopher's cap on when assessing the Vaqueros' 5-2 Western State Conference South Division loss to College of the Canyons on Thursday. “Anyone can play when you're winning,” Cicuto said. “It's when you're losing, how you battle through that.” The loss, its second in a row and third in four games, dropped Glendale to 4-4 in conference play. This marks a tough stretch for the three-time defending conference champions, whose lineup featured five freshmen and four sophomores.
