PASADENA - Two weeks ago, the prospect of the Glendale Community College men's golf team getting out of the Western State Conference Final and qualifying for the Southern California Regionals was bleak. But when the Vaqueros placed second in a conference match April 14 at Oakmont Country Club, there was a glimmer of hope that the team could qualify for the postseason. With three of the four postseason spots already locked up heading into Monday's conference finals, Glendale college would have to best the remaining four schools to earn a berth.

Following 15 minutes of a hard-fought Ultimate Fighting Championship women's bantamweight bout, Glendale Fighting Club's Jessamyn “The Gun” Duke thought she would have her hand raised. Instead, for the first time, Duke was dealt a professional loss, as she was on the wrong end of a unanimous decision against Bethe Correia on Saturday night at UFC 172 in Baltimore. “I thought I had it,” Duke told the UFC after the fight. “I knew it was going to be close, but I really thought the fight was mine.” Correia won the 135-pound bout via scores of 30-27 twice and 29-28.

Our City Council likes to brag how we are spending millions of dollars on parkland services. But, nearly 90% of the parkland money comes from grants by the county, state or federal government. Thus, only 10% comes from the city's General Fund. With over 63% of the city's budget going for just the police and fire union employees for their salaries and pension benefits plus about 84% of our pension obligations being unfunded, our council will continue to count on using grant money to fund essential needed city services.

Five of the six tennis players from Glendale Community College encountered their first taste of postseason competition as freshmen. Though none of the members from the Glendale men's and women's tennis teams advanced to the state tournament following the second day of the California Community College Athletic Assn. State Regionals in Ventura County, the Vaqueros will at least have the luxury of having gained some much-needed experience to help them heading into next season. Two men's doubles teams and one women's doubles team and a singles player from Glendale all had their runs end Friday.

GLENDALE - Scoring runs hasn't come easy as of late for the Glendale High baseball team. It's something Glendale first-year Coach Alan Eberhart had running through his mind Friday, leading up to the first of two season matchups against cross-town rival Hoover. If the Nitros had a quality scoring opportunity, Eberhart said he would not hesitate to send a runner home on a close play at the plate. The situation came to fruition Friday and Eberhart's gamble paid off for Glendale in a 1-0 Pacific League victory.
