Bulldog runners screamed in unison, Woo-hoo!

The Bulldogs (5-1) remained in a three-way tie for first place in the WAC dual-meet standings with Los Banos and Livingston.

Ceres High's Cecilia Carretero placed first against the Hawks.

She completed the 3.1-mile course in 22 minutes, 50 seconds.

Lisette Carretero (second, 23:09), Dia Borden (third, 23:20), Laura Espinoza (fourth, 25:56) and Jeanette Torrez (fifth, 26:07) also contributed to the team victory.

"It feels good to beat our rival," sophomore Lisette Carretero said. "We've been going harder at practice. We push each other a lot."

Central Valley's top finisher was Catrina Castillo (eighth, 27:16). Hawk teammates Laura Aguilar (10th, 27:48), Citlalli Soltero (11th, 28:49), Casandra Maldonado (13th, 28:53) and Alyssa Washburn (14th, 28:54) also scored points for the Hawks (1-5).
