CV moves into tie for third place in league standings
Central Valley High School's varsity girls golf team won twice and moved into a tie for third place with crosstown-rival Ceres High in the Western Athletic Conference standings this past week.

The Hawks need to win just one of their final four matches to secure their first-ever non-losing season. Central Valley will face Livingston, Ceres High, Central Catholic and Pacheco.

"We got a good group," Hawks head coach Kelly Wheelock said. "The girls are a lot more competitive this year. Last year, they just went through the motions and were just happy to be on the team."

Central Valley beat Los Banos by 23 strokes, 171-194, on Sept. 25 at St. Stanislaus.

Martina Bernal led the Hawks (5-3) with a 38.

Jocelyn Camarillo, Marlen Diaz and Wynter Bratenas fired 42, 45 and 46, respectively.

"Martina shot her best round so far this year and Jocelyn continues to be consistent in every match," Wheelock said.

Central Valley defeated Patterson on Thursday at Diablo Grande.

Patterson had to forfeit because it didn't have enough players.

Ceres High lost 226-228 to second-place Livingston on Thursday on the road and 144-169 to undefeated Central Catholic on Sept. 25 at home.

Livingston leapfrogged Ceres High in the WAC standings.

Livingston, Ceres High and Central Valley are vying for the conference's second and third playoff berths.
