GLENDALE — Toshiteru Fujisaku had a performance that most No. 9 hitters would dream of having. Plate appearances have been hard to come by for the Glendale Community College baseball player throughout the season, but he hasn’t let it deter him from making the most of any opportunity handed to him by Coach Chris Cicuto. Fujisaku enjoyed his biggest moment of the season Thursday afternoon, as he hit a pair of three-run home runs and drove in seven runs to carry Glendale college to a 13-6 Western State Conference victory against rival College of the Canyons at Stengel Field.

VALENCIA — In holding College of the Canyons’ offense scoreless for the final 52-plus minutes of Saturday night’s Northern Conference National Division contest at Canyons, the Glendale Community College football team showed it really is just as good, if not better, than its recent string of stellar performances would indicate. But with another frustratingly mediocre performance, the Vaqueros’ offense did nothing to shake the reputation for ineffectuality that it has simultaneously developed.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan People sometimes ask Glendale Community College women's basketball Coach Dyan Miller what the difference is between her program and College of the Canyons. Her response is direct: It's the players like Kaipresha Price and Gracie Coronado who make the disparity between a constantly successful team and a squad that always seems like its on the brink of becoming an elite team, but usually falls a step or two short. The predicament Miller faces is that those types of standout athletes opt to attend her Western State Conference Southern Division rival instead of helping the Vaqueros take that next step.

A partnership has developed between local artists and Chevy Chase Country Club that offers artists a venue to show their work and also provides artwork for empty walls of the Glendale club. Glendale resident and oil painter Dahl Delu knew there were several local artists in his neighborhood. He also knew how hard it was to find a place to show one’s work. “I noticed the country club’s restaurant, ballroom, bar and lounge have bare walls,” he said. “I asked them about us doing a group show there, and they said yes.” He called seven of his neighbors who are artists, and in three weeks they put together their first show in October.

As a result of a gift of 100 acres of canyon land in Stough Park in the mid-1950s from Joseph DeBell, the city of Burbank started development of the DeBell Municipal Golf Course. The city agreed to develop the course and name it in the donor’s honor. It also agreed to rezone, to multifamily, a hillside property DeBell owned far up on what was to become an extension of Walnut Avenue. Massive earth movement started to shave off ridge lines to fill in canyons for fairways and greens, but only after extensive surveying and core sampling had been done.

Gary Moskowitz HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- Patrick Dougherty is proud to say his 8-year-old son, Matthew, designed and cut the family pumpkin almost all by himself, and that the scary-faced jack-o'-lantern will sit ominously on the Doughertys' front porch until Halloween. The Dougherty family was one of several who attended a pumpkin-carving event at Stough Canyon Nature Center Saturday afternoon during which pumpkins were designed and cut for Halloween with the help of the nature center's staff.

BURBANK - Burroughs High's softball team welcomed CIF Southern Section Division I opponent Canyon Springs for a nonleague doubleheader at Olive Park in the host's final games before spring break. The Indians came away with a split against the Cougars Wednesday, pulling away late in the first game for an 8-2 win before dropping the back half of the twin bill, 9-5. “I'm really happy about the whole day. I think we were winners today,” Burroughs Coach Doug Nicol said. “I was able to get lots of girls in in certain positions the second game and see how they would react against a good team.

BURBANK - The Burbank High girls' volleyball team was unsuccessful in defending its share of the Pacific League title it earned last season. What the Bulldogs did earn, with a sweep at Burroughs in the final match of the regular season, was a tie for second place with their rivals. This meant that, by way of an aggregate victory total of four games to three in the two meetings with the Indians, Burbank became the No. 2 seed out of the league in the CIF Southern Section Division IIA playoffs, thereby avoiding going on the road to start its postseason run. So as a reward for the regular season finale shutout, the Bulldogs looked to cash in on home court advantage as they hosted Temescal Canyon in the first round.

SIMI VALLEY - While the Providence High girls' basketball team was more than familiar with the full-court, constant-pressure defense Sierra Canyon runs - given the Pioneers run it themselves - the Trailblazers held a number of intangibles they simply couldn't handle. Sierra Canyon used its healthy length and height advantage over Providence to post a 78-30 running-clock victory in the second round of the   CIF State Division V Basketball Championships at Chatsworth High Saturday night.

BURBANK - In the continuation of a classic confrontation, although one usually not contested in water, the Cowboys ventured away from home to battle the Indians. This chapter in the long-standing historical rivalry came in the form of a nonleague swim meet between Canyon Country Canyon High and host Burroughs. "Canyon is always a really, really strong team, I mean anyone from the Santa Clarita area is always going to be a tough swim," Burroughs Coach Danny Garcia said. "It was a little intimidating the numbers they brought up. I mean, they had 70 to 80 kids and we have around 65. So, I know all the kids had some big eyes, but everyone swam really tough.

CANYON COUNTRY - In its first three matches of the season, the Burroughs High girls' soccer team received strong efforts from its defense, which allowed just three goals, and didn't give up more than one in any game. It was that defense that helped the Indians win all three of those contests. However, in the early going Wednesday in a nonleague game against Canyon Country Canyon, the usually stable defense started to show come cracks. Unfortunately for the Cowboys, they weren't able to take advantage through the first 16 minutes.

BURBANK HIGH - The Bellarmine-Jefferson High boys' basketball team was already missing some key players when it faced Canyon Country Canyon on Tuesday in a first-round, pool-play game of the Burbank Tournament. A group of the team's seniors were away at a religious retreat, as just two of five starters remained. To make matter worse, two of the Guards' junior players were not able to play because of illness. That left the Guards with essentially a junior varsity team that included just two varsity players.
