Ceres High School's varsity girls track and field team posted a 76-31 victory over visiting Central Catholic on Tuesday, May 3.

The win helped the Bulldogs secure a third-place finish in the Western Athletic Conference dual-meet standings (3-2).

"I didn't expect that at all because our numbers aren't big," Ceres High head coach Bill Curlis said. "We haven't had a strong girls team since 2007. We've had some very good individuals."

Sophomore distance runner Cecilia Carretero played a key role this year.

"I didn't think she was coming out at all because she played soccer," Curlis said. "It all worked out. We only lost one meet after she joined the team."

Carretero finished first in the 3,200, 1,600 and 800 against Central Catholic.

Crystal Duran finished first in the 300 hurdles, 400, 100 and long jump.

Nour Lopez finished first in the 100 hurdles and second in the 300 hurdles.

Ashley Thiner finished first in the high jump and second in the long jump.

Elizabeth Nunes finished second in the 800 and 400.

Jasbir Mand finished third in the 200.

Yvette Huizar finished third in the long jump.

Lourdes Razo finished third in the shot put.

"We had every event covered," Curlis said. "That made a huge difference."
