Central Valley sophomore Anthony Bonales defended his individual title and Ceres High finished third in the team standings at the Western Athletic Conference Varsity Boys Golf Championships last Wednesday at Diablo Grande's Legends Course in Patterson.

Bonales fired a 4-over-par 76.

"There was a little bit of pressure," Anthony said. "But I like that as an athlete. I was really confident going into the tournament. I'm glad I was able to win it for the second year in a row."

Ceres High posted a team score of 478.

"We should have done better," Bulldogs head coach Scott Smith said.

Adam Hall, Ceres High's No. 4 player, shot an 88.

Blake Hurst (No. 2), Ian Couture (No. 1), Wade Kolodzieczak (No. 5) and Jesse Reveira (No. 3) shot 96, 97, 98 and 99, respectively.

Couture forgot his golf shoes and played in his Vans.

"That played a factor in his tee shots," Smith said. "He slipped a couple times swinging. We razzed him a little bit."

Central Valley (558) placed sixth, one spot ahead of undermanned Pacheco.

Central Catholic (431) won the team title.

Los Banos (464), Patterson (524) and Livingston (541) took second, fourth and fifth.

Central Valley's Jacob Craig, Josh Boles, Cameron Ahart and David Holland finished with rounds of 111, 112, 125 and 134, respectively.

Bonales and Ceres High both advanced to the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV Tournament.
