California Weekend by Cary Ordway is a new feature in Applause designed to help the California resident and visitor find unique and extraordinary getaway experiences in and near California. If you're as fascinated as we are by the opulence of 1930s Hollywood - a time when parts of Southern California seemed as far removed from the Depression-era Midwest as the two regions' temperatures on a bright January day - there is an excursion you can take that is like going back to spend a weekend with Clark Gable or Carole Lombard.

LA CANADA FLINTRIDGE - Part ruthlessly efficient, part gracefully balanced, the visiting Santa Barbara High boys' soccer team was totally dominant in nonleague action Saturday afternoon, taking apart St. Francis, 6-1, at Friedman Field. Whether it was stats, such as the Dons outshooting the Golden Knights, 25-11, or on-field play, as Santa Barbara doubled its first-half offensive output with four second-half goals, there wasn't much the Dons did wrong or much St. Francis could look for positively.

With a victory in either of its final two games, the Glendale Community College football team can record a winning season for the first time since 2007. For the Vaqueros to achieve a winning mark, they must do so going through the teeth of their schedule. Glendale will start its journey when it meets host Santa Barbara in a Pacific Conference American Division game at 6 p.m. Saturday. Should Glendale (5-3, 3-2 in the division) lose to Santa Barbara (6-2, 3-2), it would have one last opportunity against host L.A. Pierce on Nov. 16 to pick up a winning record for the first time since it went 6-4, 5-2 in the Western State Conference South Division.

GLENDALE — The members of the Glendale Community College football team could use some luck right about now. At 0-7 overall and 0-3 in the Pacific Conference's American Division, who could blame them?

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE — They say home is where the heart is. For one historic night, that adage couldn’t have rang more true for the Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy girls’ volleyball team. And on Tuesday night it was a heart that beat loud. The comfort of their home gymnasium, not having to travel some 200 roundtrip miles, and having the support of their fan base was exactly what the Tologs needed, and perhaps, what got them over the hump. “It was key,” senior Katie Condon said.

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.

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.

SANTA BARBARA - Ten minutes after the conclusion of Glendale City College's American Division Pacific Conference football game, Vaqueros Jose Sanchez, Carlos Gonzalez, Anthony Acevedo and Manuel Garabedian playfully tackled head coach John Rome to the ground. The gesture figured natural since Glendale's defense tallied seven sacks, forced three turnovers and had taken down all other comers in a come-from-behind 24-17 road victory Saturday evening over Santa Barbara City College. “This is special to us because we're trying to change a culture,” said Rome, who was helped up back to his feet by his players.
