GLENDALE — This year’s Glendale Community College baseball team will feature some intriguing freshman talent, as well as some sophomore holdovers returning for their second year at Stengel Field. But for Coach Chris Cicuto, much of the heart and soul and, ultimately, the success of the Vaqueros will rest on their core of third-year players. Infielders Danny Casey from Bellarmine-Jefferson High, Burroughs’ Miguel Alvarez, outfielders Brian Ward and Chris Arredondo and pitcher Tony Banuelos, Jr. — another former Indian — all of whom have redshirted a year during their stint at Glendale college, are back for their final year of eligibility and all will be asked, to varying degrees, to take a leading role in the clubhouse and on the field.

Local education officials this week said President Obama’s expansion of federal aid for college-bound students could make the process less intimidating for those seeking financial help. Provisions included in the so-called health-care reconciliation bill expand the range of Pell Grants and federal financial aid for lower-income students, a move that Glendale Community College officials and high school guidance counselors said would simplify what has been an arduous financial aid system for students.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE — Five yards away from a potential game-tying touchdown, the Glendale Community College football team may have fumbled away its best chance of winning this season. A botched exchange between third-string quarterback Anthony Carter and running back Joe Wiggan at the five-yard line was recovered by Los Angeles Pierce College with a little over a minute left and preserved a Brahmas' 28-20 Pacific Conference American Division win Saturday night at Sartoris Field.

"We have a good lineup and we have some experienced players," said Glendale college men's Coach Greg Osbourne, whose team finished second at the Southern California Regionals on Monday at Bermuda Dunes Country Club and will be one of eight squads competing for state prominence.

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.
