Central Valley's varsity girls golf team continued its unprecedented run of excellence this past week in Chowchilla.

The Hawks finished in a program-best third place while competing at the Western Athletic Conference Year-End Tournament on Oct. 17 at Pheasant Run Golf Course.

"It's been the best year we've ever had," Central Valley head coach Kelly Wheelock said. "I'm not surprised at all. It goes back to the attitude and work they put into it. The seniors were great leaders. The girls meshed well. It was a lot of fun disregarding the success part."

Central Valley posted a team score of 659 at the WAC Championships.

Livingston (573), Patterson (604), Los Banos (667), Pacheco (701) and Ceres High (n/s) placed first, second, fourth, fifth and sixth, respectively.

Freshman Amelia Daoheung led the Hawks with a 100.

She finished fourth in the individual standings.

Central Valley's Paulina Diaz, Esmeralda Lopez, Emily Almanza and Fiona Gay shot 130, 135, 142 and 152, respectively.

"Every girl bettered their score from the WAC Mid-Season Tournament," Wheelock said. "They played really well."

Ariana Medina led the crosstown-rival Bulldogs with a 134.

Alexandra Potts shot a 144.

The top two teams in the WAC's overall team standings qualified for the Sac-Joaquin Section Division-IV Tournament.

Livingston racked up a conference-leading 45 points.

Patterson (26 points) edged out Central Valley (25 points) and Los Banos (24 points) for the second spot.

"Patterson beat us by a point," Wheelock said.

Almanza, Diaz, Daoheung and Medina secured individual berths to Divisionals.

"That's the first time that's happened," Wheelock said while talking about having a trio of players from Central Valley move on to the postseason. "That's a cool deal."

Almanza and Diaz have been playing golf for four and three years, respectively, at Central Valley.

"I'm excited for them," Wheelock said. "They deserve it. They work hard. They're good kids. They were consistent all year long."

Central Valley accomplished a lot of firsts during WAC competition this year.

The Hawks placed third at the confeence's year-end tournament.

Central Valley took fourth at the mid-season tourney.

The Hawks amassed a 6-4 record during the WAC dual season.

"Everything we did this year was a program-best," Wheelock said. "It sucks because we're losing a group of seniors. They've been the meat and potatoes of the program. They did awesome."
