CHS girl golfers qualify for playoffs
Ceres High School's varsity girls golf team secured its third consecutive playoff berth last week.

The second-place Bulldogs (9-3) made history again after collecting wins against Western Athletic Conference opponents Central Valley and Los Banos.

"Almost all of my players are working with (veteran teaching pro Greg Silva) at River Oaks," Ceres High head coach Randy Cerny said. "That shows the desire these girls have to improve their games."

The Bulldogs bested crosstown-rival Central Valley 166-185 on Thursday in Ceres.

Ceres High has won its last four meetings versus the Hawks.

Sophomore Erica Hogner led the way this past week with an 8-over-par 35.

She had three pars. Hogner missed a birdie putt.

"That's one of her best scores this year," Cerny said. "I'm really impressed with the way that Erica has come around. She's been the biggest surprise this season."

Ceres High teammates Caitlin Pfaff, Kinsey Ward and Brittany Turnbow shot 40, 45 and 46, respectively.

Martina Bernal led Central Valley with a 17-over-par 44.

Jocelyn Camarillo, Wynter Bratenas and Marlen Diaz finished with rounds of 46, 47 and 48, respectively.

The fourth-place Hawks dropped to 6-5 in the WAC standings.

Ceres High topped Los Banos 223-272 on Tuesday, Oct. 9 at Forebay Golf Course.

Pfaff carded a team-best 45.

Hogner, Turnbow and Dania Medina posted scores of 52, 60 and 66.

Ceres High and Central Valley will compete at the WAC Championships today on the Ranch Course at Diablo Grande.

The Bulldogs need to finish ahead of second-place Livingston to lock up a runner-up finish in league.
