GLENDALE - After snapping a 17-game home losing streak, the Glendale Community College football team started a string of home wins behind the exploits of a dominant defense at Sartoris Field. Visiting San Diego Mesa had a tough going from start to finish, especially on offense, as the Vaqueros picked up a 41-6 home victory Saturday night. GCC forced four turnovers, two coming on Jaelan Rising-Barnwell interceptions and had 13 tackles for a loss that included four sacks, as the Olympians averaged 0.8 of a yard on 33 rushing attempts.

After an unprecedented run to the state championships a season ago, Glendale Community College's baseball team is doing its best for an encore. And the first act will begin Saturday at Stengel Field, when the fifth-seeded Vaqueros host No. 12 San Diego Mesa in the first round of the Southern California Regional. Vaqueros Coach Chris Cicuto's squad began its run to state last season with a similar seeding and hosted a first-round regional, as well. With a healthy mix of returners and newcomers coloring this year's run to a second consecutive Western State Conference South Division title, it's a safe bet that the returners' postseason experience will pay dividends, while contending with the pressure of duplicating last year's histrionics.

After qualifying for the Southern California Regionals and then competing in the Western Conference Tournament last week, the members of the exhausted Glendale Community College men's tennis team made the long trek to San Diego on Tuesday. While the Vaqueros were glad to return to the playoffs for the first time in two seasons, they were not able to shake off fatigue. Fifth-seeded Glendale saw its season end with a 5-1 loss against third-seeded San Diego Mesa in a quarterfinal match.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan John Cicuto still has that glow on his face. The Glendale Community College football coach couldn't have been happier with his team's 24-17 season-opening victory Sept. 4 against Orange Coast College. The Vaqueros won their season opener for the first time since 1999. It won't get any easier today for GCC, which will look to start 2-0 for the first time since 1988. The Vaqueros meet San Diego Mesa College (0-1) at 1 p.m. at Moyse Field.

Grant Gordon After failing to score an offensive touchdown Saturday in a loss to San Diego Mesa, Glendale Community College's offense doesn't find this week's task any more accommodating. Facing the Vaqueros in their Western State Conference South Division opener at 1 p.m. today at Moyse Field will be L.A. Southwest College, which has the WSC's toughest defense. "They have to have one of the best defenses in our conference," GCC Coach John Cicuto said.

In some ways, last Saturday evening was an aberration for the Glendale Community College football team, much to the chagrin of head coach John Rome. While the Vaqueros (1-1) missed an opportunity to begin the season with consecutive victories for the first time since 2009 after a disheartening 45-18 defeat at San Bernardino Valley College, the loss wasn't as upsetting as was the manner in which the game was lost. “We played out of sorts,” Rome said. “We didn't block on special teams, we threw the ball way too many times.

While the members of the Glendale Community College football team certainly aren't looking to duplicate their fortunes of 2012, they will most assuredly have familiarity on their sides in 2013. The Vaqueros will play the same teams they competed against last season, when they went 2-8 and 0-7 in the Pacific Conference's American Division. There's one exception, as the sites will rotate. Glendale will play its five home games at Sartoris Field, including three conference games.

For the first time since 2009, the Glendale Community College football team is in the black. The Vaqueros rallied from a two-point halftime deficit in defeating host San Diego Mesa College, 31-19, in nonconference action Saturday night. “This win feels great, especially with the difficulties we've had the last couple of years,” Glendale Coach John Rome said. “You teach these young men to go through life's battles and attack with a plan and that came through tonight.” Glendale improved to 2-1 before heading into next Saturday's American Pacific Conference opener at Antelope Valley at 7 p.m. The triumph marked the first time Glendale has posted a winning record since the Vaqueros started the 2009 season with three straight victories, while the win already matches the program's win total of the last two seasons.

With the Glendale Community College football's offense still trying to find its way, there's been a lot of pressure put on the Vaqueros defense early in the 2012 season. Glendale's defensive unit rose to the occasion and inspired hope for GCC's 2012 campaign when the Vaqueros defeated El Camino-Compton College on the road, 27-10, Sept. 1 as they forced three turnovers (two interceptions and a fumble) in the victory. Defensively, Glendale college was overworked last Saturday. The Vaqueros netted just three first downs and 54 yards on offense (16 passing, 38 rushing)
