Ceres High School's varsity boys water polo team made a statement during the opening week of Western Athletic Conference play.

The 2012 WAC champion Bulldogs defeated Pacheco and Central Catholic by a combined score of 28-8.

"We want to go undefeated," head coach Tracy Bull said. "That's a goal for us."

Ceres High began defense of its conference title with a 15-2 win over visiting Pacheco on Sept. 30.

Zachary Jones, WAC MVP a year ago, led the Bulldogs with five goals, three assists and three steals.

Terry Brogdon collected five goals, two steals and one assist.

Ethan Campbell had one goal, three steals and two assists.

Timothy Campbell had one goal, two assists and one steal.
Stefan Perry had one goal and two steals.

Erik Weststeyn had one goal and one steal.

Bobby Baranski had one goal.

Goalkeeper Sean Carr totaled 11 saves and six steals.

"We were really fired up for that game," Bull said. "We stuck it to them. We had an assist on just about every goal. We were sharing the ball. They couldn't handle our speed. That's our strength."
Host Ceres High posted a 13-6 win against Central Catholic on Wednesday.

"Central Catholic is the most physical team in the league," Bull said.

Brogdon tallied six goals and three assists.

Jones had six goals and three assists.

Tim and Ethan contributed one goal each.

Carr made 13 saves.

Down 2-0, the Bulldogs took control with a 10-0 run in the first half.

"We got a little lazy on defense," Bull said while talking about his team's sluggish start. "We settled down and started countering. It was a physical game. Central Catholic's a dangerous team."
