GLENDALE — Rest was hard to come by for Alex Sarkissian on Sunday. But rewards were abundant, as the Glendale Community College standout became the first player in school history to win the Ojai Valley Tournament community college singles title, before teaming up with Trevor Campbell to win the doubles crown at the 111th annual rendition of the prestigious event. “It’s definitely a big accomplishment to win both singles and doubles,” said Sarkissian, who improved to 26-0 on the season with his singles final win over Derek Siddiqui of Cerritos, 6-2, 7-5, before teaming with Campbell to outlast Oliver Andrzejczuk and Torsten Keil-Long, 7-6, 6-4, in the doubles and tournament finale.

GLENDALE — Maureen Diaz and Robert Yim have seen their fair share of highlights in Ojai in years past. But the 110th annual Ojai Valley Tennis Tournament hasn’t been kind to either, thus far. Yim, a Glendale High graduate, saw his tournament run come to a quick end on Friday, while Diaz’ singles run never really got going. Overall, highlights for locals on the day were few and far between. La Crescenta’s Sarah Ali and the Glendale Community College’s doubles squad of Sarah Aguilar and Minelli Ebrahimi were the only locals to taste victory on Friday.

GLENDALE ? Maureen Diaz was no stranger to this script. Neither was Bob MacKay. And so for another year, history repeated itself for the locals competing in the Ojai Valley Tennis Tournament. The latest heartbreak occurred over the weekend in the 106th installment of the prestigious event. In Diaz's case, she again came up just short in her bid for a women's open title, falling in the finals for the second time in three years. For MacKay, Glendale Community College's men's tennis coach, he experienced a similar case of déjà vu, as College of the Desert's Jack Hui again eliminated one of his athletes.

Erik Boal Doing just fine: Dylan Kim's decision to bypass his senior season at Hoover to concentrate on the junior tournament circuit was a big blow to the local high school scene, but judging by his recent performances, the former Tornado standout is doing OK.

Mary Burkin "The Lesbian Witches of Ojai" is really four one-act plays, all new, all distinctly different. The title promises something a little wackier than what's delivered. Still, young playwright Brian Dembkoski displays a genuine talent for the warped and kooky in this Glendale College Theatre Arts Department production. Two of the plays -- "Something Else" (a satire on victim-rescuer-perpetrator triangles) and "The Lesbian Witches of Ojai" (about Halloween night at a lesbian party in an Ojai graveyard, of course)

Sevana Zargarian and Samantha Sismundo continued to improve in the semifinal round of the Southern California Regional Saturday.

OJAI - For a victory a longtime coming, extending past two heartbreaking defeats this season into the previous year's string of losses marred by forfeits, perhaps it was a little surprising there was no raucous, over-the-top celebration. Perhaps it was because of the sweltering conditions. Or maybe it was that the Flintridge Prep football team knew the outcome long before halftime came. Then again, it might very well have been the sentiments stressed by Flintridge Prep Coach Antonio Harrison, reminding his Rebels that what they had been through was exactly what host Villanova Prep was currently forging through.

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.

Following a rainstorm in the heart of Ventura County, Paul Park heated up.

Unlike past years in which the prestigious Ojai Tournament served as an entity unto itself for community college tennis, this year, players had to qualify out of conference tournaments. The 113th annual Ojai Valley Tournament was the final event for junior college tennis, with the Southern California Regionals and state tournament taking place under the umbrella of the prestigious tourney. “It was a lot different. You had to qualify this year,” Glendale Community College men's Coach Bob MacKay said.
