SportsScope : Vaqueros Show Their Winning Ways

July 02, 1987

Glendale Community College teams, competing in 12 Western State Conference sports, won three titles and placed second in three others during the 1986-87 season.

Four coaches were named WSC coaches of the year and two athletes were named most valuable players.

Glendale took first place in football last fall with a 10-0 record and was ranked No. 1 in the nation for much of the season before falling to Riverside in the Pony Bowl. Jim Sartoris was coach of the year and all-American quarterback Rob Huffman was MVP.

The Vaqueros won the conference crown in soccer with a 12-0 record and finished 18-1-4 overall. First-year mentor Joe Agoston was named coach of the year and all-American Enrique Vasquez was athlete of the year.

In track, the Glendale men secured their 13th consecutive conference title and Tom McMurray took coach of the year honors while leading his team to its 116th consecutive dual meet win.

Men's tennis Coach Bob Donaghy was awarded coach of the year honors even though his team placed fourth in the conference.

McMurray's men's cross-country team took second place and Brian Beauchemin's men's basketball squad finished second and posted a mark of 21-10.
