Mirjam Swanson GLENDALE COMMUNITY COLLEGE -- By the looks of it, the Glendale Community College women's basketball team had no business matching up with the squad from L.A. Valley College. The Vaqueros were smaller. Slimmer. And the Monarchs had the most explosive player on the court in Michelle Tompkins who had a game-high 29 points. And there were three fewer GCC players available than there were for Valley College. But none of that is new for GCC, which lost Wedenesday's game at its own gym, 54-40.

Local education officials are starting to collaborate to improve adult education in Burbank and Glendale and hope to tap into a multimillion-dollar state grant available to school districts and colleges that agree to work together toward that goal. They're hoping to get a portion of $25 million from the California Community College Chancellor's Office that's available to K-12 school districts and community colleges that partner to form regional consortia that address needs tied to adult education.

Glendale Community College officials say local outreach efforts are paying off, with more students enrolling in the college in recent years from high schools in Glendale, Burbank and Los Angeles. Over the years, college officials have meticulously tallied each contact they've made with college-bound students. During the 2012-13 school year, they reached 15,222 students on high school campuses, as well as at college fairs or other events. That figure is up from 6,903 contacts made in 2004 and 2005.

Charles Rich GLENDALE -- Don't be fooled by their skimpy record. It's a moot point for the Glendale Community College men's basketball team, who will open the Western State Conference Southern Division portion of their schedule at 7:30 p.m. today against host College of the Canyons. The Cougars (8-10) finished second last year in their conference, arguably one of the toughest in the state. The Vaqueros, who advanced to the State Final Eight Tournament last March, will look to use that appearance as a springboard to knock off defending conference champion Los Angeles Valley College.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Glendale Community College women’s basketball Coach Monica Hang explained her team’s struggles in the second half of Saturday’s game by stating that the Vaqueros were fatigued from trying to erase a 13-point deficit. Susana Rascon, Hang’s starting guard, was more candid. “We fell apart,” the sophomore said. The Vaqueros rallied behind Rascon to take a second-half lead, but Glendale College’s poor shot selection and lapses on defense allowed visiting Los Angeles Valley College to escape with a 52-48 Western State Conference Southern Division victory.

Not many goalkeepers have enjoyed being in position to square up in front of the cage to block one of her blazing shots. A few area high school girls’ water polo players called on to guard the cage once feared being in that position. Now, that task belongs to numerous junior college goalies. There might even be a trace of sympathy toward today’s goalkeepers who must be counted on to stop Lybov Tchougounova. With Tchougounova, a 2007 Crescenta Valley High graduate, ready to shoot, there’s a concern when she’s cradling the ball while looking to give her team an edge mentally and on the scoreboard.
