GLENDALE — The Western State Conference will likely once again be expected to be among the elite this season. Glendale Community College men’s and women’s track and field Coach Eddie Lopez won’t argue with that assessment. To be pointed in the right direction of challenging for potential conference titles, Lopez believes his Vaqueros will need to have plenty of depth from the running lanes to the jump pits. Lopez just might have that depth and talent available at his disposal for both programs, which will take part in the first of four conference meets at 2 p.m. today at College of the Canyons.

GLENDALE - When asked his expectations for the 2014 men's and women's track and field season, Eddie Lopez, Glendale Community College's 27-year coach, paused ever so briefly before racing to give an answer. “We're trying to get a trophy,” Lopez said. “Over the years, we've been close, especially with the women's side at state. We've been fifth or sixth, maybe fourth, but we've not been higher, we've just missed a top-three finish. So, that's our goal this year.” In terms of numbers, the Vaqueros women's team is on the smaller side with about 22 athletes before Friday's season-opening meet at Bakersfield College.
