Grant Gordon It's not an event with a lot of fanfare or recognition, but the steeplechase has become a tradition at Glendale Community College. A winning tradition. Women's Coach Eddie Lopez and men's Coach Tom McMurray are counting on that tradition to continue during the Vaqueros' 2005 track and field season. Last season, four Vaqueros advanced to the State Finals, three in the steeplechase. On the men's side, both Humberto Espino and Patrick O'Neil have moved on. Espino was a sophomore, while O'Neil transferred to UC Riverside after a stellar freshman year.

Riders compete in one narrow lane up hills, through a sand trap, and over foot-tall hurdles.
