NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? Spring break for the student body at Glendale Community College won?t occur until the first part of April. For the members of the college?s baseball team, they could probably use their spring break vacation right about now. Glendale college suffered arguably one of its worst losses of its season Thursday night in a 16-2 drubbing against Rio Hondo College at Stengel Field in the final day of the three-day Spring Break Classic. The Vaqueros (10-14) staggered throughout after playing extra-inning games late into Tuesday and Wednesday.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — These first-round home tournament games haven’t brought out the best in the Glendale Community College men’s basketball team. In fact, the games have been mind-boggling for the Vaqueros and there’s not much Glendale college Coach Brian Beauchemin can do about it anymore. “I don’t know what to do,” said Beauchemin, who saw his team drop a 64-63 decision to Rio Hondo College on Wednesday night in an opening-round contest of the 22nd Vaquero Classic.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? With little time to spare, Markus Monroe needed to react quickly. The Glendale Community College men?s basketball player pounced on a rebound and proceeded to dunk the ball just before the buzzer chirped to end the first half. Monroe?s ability to react also spurred the Vaqueros in the second half. Monroe finished with 16 points, including nine in the second half, to lead host Glendale college to a 92-86 victory against Rio Hondo College on Wednesday night in an opening-round game of the 21st rendition of the Vaquero Classic.

Charles Rich A 72-second stretch that featured three three-pointers might have alleviated any doubts about Jovan Jester's recent skid. The Glendale Community College men's basketball player had battled a bit of a shooting slump, but found his rhythm at the right time. Jester finished with a game-high 30 points -- including 21 from three-point territory -- to power GCC to a 92-75 victory against Rio Hondo College in a first-round game of the Vaquero Classic on Wednesday night.

Prior to the season, Sooren Derboghosian-Pakajaki met with the coaching staff of the Glendale Community College men's basketball team to discuss what his specific job responsibilities would entail. The conversation was short and to the point with the 6-foot-9 sophomore center, who would be asked to handle most of the rebounding responsibilities on both ends of the court and provide a key dimension on offense. Things have worked out well for the most part for Derboghosian-Pakajaki, who contributed 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds Wednesday night to lead Glendale college to a convincing 84-58 victory against Rio Hondo College in an opening-round game of the Vaquero Classic.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — For a while, the Glendale Community College men’s basketball team appeared on its way to winning its second home tournament of the season. The Vaqueros looked sharp with their shooting, crisp with their passing and aggressive on defense. Many of those facets vanished, including the ability to handle being pitted against a zone defense. Glendale college saw its offense become practically dormant in the second half and suffered a 73-62 loss to Moorpark College in the championship contest of the 23rd Vaquero Classic on Saturday night.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE ? There were a few times in the second half of Wednesday?s Vaquero Classic between Glendale Community College and L.A. Harbor College when the visiting Seahawks seemed poised to turn the momentum their way. The first time L.A. Harbor looked like it was going to make a once 13-point Vaquero lead into a one-possession game, Glendale college men?s player Daniel Palmer hit a three-pointer with seven minutes to play. The second time the Seahawks needed a defensive stop and a bucket to trim the lead to three or two, Palmer came through again.

GLENDALE — Not too far from the court, Glendale Community College men’s tennis Coach Bob MacKay could see the pattern continuing. It’s a pattern that’s worked out well for MacKay’s doubles team of Paul Nagapetyan and Marko Gortinski — fall behind early before rallying to win a tiebreaker. That’s exactly what happened to the tandem Thursday afternoon. Nagapetyan and Gortinski came back to post a 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 (8-6) win against Eric Lu and JP Arreglado of Mount San Antonio College in a second round match of the Southern California Regional Individuals Tournament at Long Beach City College.
