GLENDALE - Having already wrapped up the Western State Conference championship, the Glendale Community College men's tennis team has begun a stretch of competing against four-year programs. Playing teams at the next level comes with a purpose, Glendale Coach Bob MacKay said. “You get a good perspective playing these kind of teams,” MacKay said after host Glendale suffered an 8-1 defeat against NCAA Division III Amherst College on Thursday. “It lets you know what you need to work on leading up to the Western State Conference Tournament and then the Ojai Invitational.

Glendale Community College trustees voted this week to extend Supt./President David Viar's contract through 2017 and bump up his salary by 2%. Viar took the helm of the campus in 2013 following a period of several years during which the college faced a high turnover of its top leaders. He came to the Glendale campus after serving eight years as president of American River College in Sacramento and another 15 years prior to that as the head of the Community College League of California.

MEN'S TENNIS Glendale Community College 6, L.A. Pierce College 3: Vaqueros Coach Bob MacKay said before the season began that the Vaqueros would be in position to win the Western State Conference championship for the first time since 2005. It became a reality Thursday after the host Vaqueros (9-2, 5-0 in conference) won five singles sets to turn back Pierce. “This is something that's great for the college and the team,” MacKay said. “We knew coming into conference that depth would play a huge role and it did. “We have good depth all the way down the lineup.

GLENDALE - In one regard, Glendale Community College baseball's five runs all coming with two outs showed how potentially clutch the Vaqueros can be. But loading the bases twice and coming away without runs both times showcased the other end of the spectrum and ultimately proved crucial in the Vaqueros falling Thursday afternoon in a key Western State Conference South Division tilt to L.A. Mission, 6-5, in 10 innings at Stengel Field. “Score one, it's a completely different ball game,” said GCC Coach Chris Cicuto, whose team stranded 11 runners.

GLENDALE - Glendale Community College's softball team received production throughout its lineup Thursday against L.A. Mission College. The Vaqueros hammered out 13 hits, had two home runs, including a grand slam, and eight of nine starters collected hits - and that all came in just four innings. It took two innings for the Glendale college offense to get rolling, but once it did, runs started coming in bunches. The Vaqueros used two big innings to knock off the Eagles, 11-2, in a Western State Conference Blue Division contest that was halted in the fifth inning at the Glendale Sports Complex.

The ladies of the Oakmont League decided to have fun at their recent dinner meeting. The venue, the Beckham Grill in Pasadena, was only a hop, skip and a jump from Glendale.

GLENDALE - Having a surplus of depth has been a blessing throughout the season for the members of the Glendale Community College men's tennis team. It's led to the Vaqueros posting a winning record and it's helped move them one step closer to accomplishing something for the first time since 2005 - winning the Western State Conference championship. “It's been a huge thing to have,” said Glendale Coach Bob MacKay, whose team posted a hard-fought 6-3 conference home victory Tuesday against Bakersfield.
