Ceres High's and Central Valley's varsity girls golf programs both had successful outings at the Western Athletic Conference year-end tournament on Oct. 19 at Diablo Grande.

The Bulldogs posted a team score of 442 en route to a runner-up finish behind undefeated Central Catholic (403).

"We only got beat by one team all year," said Ceres High head coach Randy Cerny, whose team had an 0-2 record against Central Catholic during the WAC regular season. "We won all of our other matches."

Bulldog senior Arleen Xayasone placed second overall with a 21-over-par 93 at the WAC tournament.

Ceres High freshman Caitlin Pfaff took third (97).

Bulldog teammates Jessica Ellsworth (120), Kinsey Ward (132) and Erica Hogner (136) finished 12th, 18th and 21st, respectively.

"We could have done better," Cerny said.

Central Valley took fourth (487).

Lizette Ayala led the Hawks with a seventh-place showing (108).

Central Valley teammates Martina Bernal (119), Jocelyn Camarillo (128) and Paty Diaz (132) took 11th, 16th and 18th, respectively.

"I'm pleased with how the girls played," Hawks head coach Kelly Wheelock said. "They competed well."

Ceres High qualified for the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV Golf Tournament for the second year in a row by virtue of its second-place finish in the WAC. The Bulldogs, 10-2 during the regular season, dropped 13 of 14 matches in 2009.

Central Valley (5-7) eclipsed last year's win total of four while tying for fourth place with Patterson.

The Hawks sent a program-best three golfers to Divisionals, including Ayala, Bernal and Camarillo.

"I'm not shocked," Wheelock said. "All three girls were consistent throughout the season."
