Bonales advances
Central Valley High School freshman Anthony Bonales tied for third place at the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV Varsity Boys Golf Tournament on Monday, May 9 in Stockton.

Anthony won the Western Athletic Conference title the previous week.

"He's building himself quite a resume," Hawks head coach Mike Holliday said.

Bonales, East Union's Will Brink, Union Mine's Kyle Listar and Vista Del Lago's Dalton Theis fired identical rounds of 7-over-par 79 in howling winds and on fast greens at Brookside Country Club last Monday.

Bonales, Brink and Listar were awarded individual berths to the SJS Masters Tournament following a playoff on the 450-yard, par-4 ninth hole.

Theis was the odd man out.

Alex Alvarez, Bonales' teammate, carded a 110 at Divisionals.

Ceres High School struggled to an eighth-place finish in the team standings.

"The conditions were brutal but everyone had to play through it," Bulldogs head coach Scott Smith said.

Ceres High (567) finished behind Oakdale (421), Vista Del Lago (436), Sonora (437), East Union (441), Union Mine (448), El Dorado (493) and Central Catholic (519).

The Bulldogs topped Los Banos (573).

"Oakdale outclassed everyone," Smith said.

Sophomore Ian Couture led Ceres High with a 25-over-par 97.

Couture advanced to Divisionals as an individual a season ago.

"He shot way better this year," Smith said. "Last year's experience helped him."

Bulldog teammates Vince Tomao, David Brazil, George Borden and Tyler Story posted rounds of 102, 115, 121 and 132, respectively.

Ceres High finished in second place in the WAC standings.

The Bulldogs qualified for the playoffs for the first time since 2004.

"I'm not disappointed in our season," Smith said. "I'm happy with the kids I had this year. We had a good time."
