Ceres High girls win crosstown matchup
The members of Ceres High's and Central Valley's varsity girls golf programs tabulated their scores near the ninth hole of the front course at River Oaks following last week's Western Athletic Conference showdown.

Led by Arleen Xayasone, Kelli Ahart, Robin White and Katie Dominguez, the Bulldogs posted a 161-189 victory over the Hawks on Tuesday, Sept. 21.

"It's nerve racking," Xayasone said. "You don't want to lose to your sister school. I told some of the girls to take it one hole at a time."

Xayasone shot a 10-over-par 37 for Ceres High, which posted a 4-2 record during the first half of the WAC season.

Ahart, White and Dominguez carded 39, 41 and 44, respectively.

Dominguez and Ahart lowered their previous-best scores by five and three strokes.

Claudia Diaz fired a 16-over-par 43 to lead the Hawks (1-5). Lizette Martinez, Jocelyn Camarillo and Martina Bernal shot 47, 49 and 50, respectively.

Ceres High split with Central Valley a season ago.

The Bulldogs have already surpassed last year's win total. All but two of Ceres High's players are new to the team. Xayasone and Jovi Padilla are returners.

"The other girls are getting experience playing golf," Arleen said. "They're gaining confidence. If one struggles, we try to keep them up."
