Scott Melesky Tradition and greatness have defined the Glendale Community College men's cross-country program the past 20 years. Winning 14 of the past 16 Western State Conference championships, including seven in a row, and two state titles since 1994, brings such praise. With five runners -- led by All-WSC second-team selection Raymundo Vasquez and honorable-mention honoree Osbaldo Vargas -- the Vaqueros are eyeing their eighth consecutive conference title, which excites Vaquero Coach Eddie Lopez.

Typical Glendale Community College football. The Vaqueros started the 2005 season like they only knew how, providing thrills and heartaches, disappointments and satisfactions and so much more. But on the day Glendale College christened its new field, the Vaqueros couldn't provide their fans with a victory. Glendale College erased a 16-point deficit in the final three minutes, but Southwestern College's Ryan Bowling easily made a 39-yard field goal with three seconds remaining to lift the Jaguars to a 39-36 triumph Saturday night at Sartoris Field.

GLENDALE — Learning to construct a team on the fly can be challenging. For Glendale Community College men’s golf Coach Greg Osbourne, it’s been exactly that and more. Scanning the area, state and western portion of the country for qualified athletes, there’s been so much for Osbourne to consider since the Vaqueros finished last season — the program’s first since the program was scrapped because of budget cuts in 1985 — at 6-71 and eighth in the formidable Western State Conference.

EdgarFOOTBALL: Glendale College defeats East L.A. College, 24-12, to secure first title in 15 years and will advance to bowl game.MONTEREY PARK -- Glendale Community College football Coach John Cicuto waited 15 years to celebrate another Western State Conference Southern Division title. He got the chance to do it again Saturday, when the Vaqueros defeated East L.A. College, 24-12, on the road to claim its first division title since 1990. "No one expected little old Glendale to win a championship this year," Vaquero Athletic Director Jim Sartoris said.

GLENDORA — If Saturday indeed proves to be the final game of the season for the members of the Glendale Community College football team, they might be left wondering — what if? What if the offense was able to find the end zone against College of the Canyons in a near upset win? What if the defense could have slowed Ventura’s 27-point first-half outburst? And what if a final drive against Citrus didn’t come up empty? On Saturday, a series of what ifs culminated with a 17-10 loss at the hands of Citrus and effectively ended Glendale college’s chances of securing at least a share of a Western State Conference Pacific Division title.

PALM DESERT -- In the world of junior college men's tennis, College of the Desert might as well be Goliath, and it's kind of hard to slay Goliath without your best weapon. That was the case for the Glendale Community College men's tennis team this season. The Vaqueros, seeded second in Southern California, faced the top-seeded Roadrunners twice in 2005, and each time they didn't have their full lineup intact. Like in the first meeting, No. 1 singles player Dylan Kim was missing in action in Tuesday's Southern California Regional final at the Monterey Country Club, and surprisingly, No. 3 player Sergy Vagramian was too. Kim's and Vagramian's absence resulted in another easy Desert victory, as Carl Schroeder's powerful program breezed to a 5-1 triumph to set up a meeting against defending-champion Fresno City at the state final.

GLENDALE — Though the season is just getting underway, Glendale Community College softball Coach Dave “Hawk” Wilder said there’s already a calming influence with a primarily new cast of players. That wasn’t a commodity Wilder enjoyed last season, when the Vaqueros finished a disappointing 10-30 and 4-19 in the Western State Conference Southern Division. The up-to-the-minute group of players have listened carefully to Wilder, a sign they are committed to competing during the next several months.

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.

GLENDALE — Throughout the summer, the Glendale Community College football team listened to the skeptics. The players heard that last year’s 9-2 season might have been due to an easy schedule. They also heard that if the team wanted to be considered one of the best in the state, it needed to beat some of the best in state. Well, the Vaqueros will get that chance to prove last season was not a flash in the pan, facing a much more difficult slate of games, including a newly realigned and stronger Western State Conference South Division.

Entering the latest installment of the women's portion of the California Community College Cross-Country Championship, it figured to be a toss up between Glendale Community College and San Diego Southwestern battling for state supremacy. The Vaqueros came into Saturday's race at Woodward Park in Fresno as the defending state champion. Southwestern entered with momentum having won the Southern California Championships on its home course Nov. 6 in San Diego. Glendale college saw its bid to win a second state championship in a row and third in four seasons come up short, as Southwestern won with 36 points and Glendale placed second with 74. "We did well and second place isn't bad," said Glendale college Coach Eddie Lopez, who led the Vaqueros' women's team to a state title in 2007 and a second-place finish in 2008.
