GCC golf match postponed
For the second week in a row, a Western State Conference golf match involving the Glendale Community College men's team was postponed.
The Vaqueros were scheduled to play Monday at Valencia Country Club, but the facility was apparently sold, according to Glendale college Coach Greg Osbourne. The match will be held at 10 a.m. March 15 at the same site.
A conference match scheduled for Feb. 15 at San Dimas Country Club was postponed because of a scheduling snafu. Osbourne said a makeup date for that match hasn't been set.
