Ceres High's varsity boys golf program completed a perfect run through the Western Athletic Conference regular season this past week.

The Bulldogs posted a team score of 423 while dominating the WAC's sixth-and-final cluster tournament at Diablo Grande Ranch Course on Thursday.

"By far, it's the hardest course we play on in league," head coach Abel Maestas said. "There are weird, tricky holes. That course really tests your mental toughness."

Defending conference-champion Ceres High increased its point total in the conference standings to 30.

Patterson (470, 24 points), Livingston (538/17), Los Banos (555/12), Central Valley (639/5) and Pacheco (677/2) placed second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth, respectively.

"I was confident going into the season based on our performance last year," Maestas said. "I knew we'd be successful. I'm very happy with the growth of the sophomores."

Sophomore Jayden Panyanouvong led the Bulldogs with a 4-over-par 76 last week.

Sophomore Gary Condit, junior Jake Nevarez, sophomore Braden Hurst and senior James Cervantez shot 76, 88, 89 and 91, respectively.

Condit and Panyanouvong rank first and second in the WAC individual standings.

"We had two guys shoot in the 70s," Maestas said. "Gary and Jayden are very good players. Gary is more consistent. Jayden is coming along nicely. They both want to do well and want our team to do well."
