The first-place Bulldogs improved to 15-5 overall and 6-1 in the Western Athletic Conference following Thursday's 45-12 win over the Panthers.

"Every person's weaknesses are improving," Ceres High head coach Jeff Borden said. "Defensively, we continue to get better and better. Our scoring is real balanced. They just play more like a team."

Jade Moore and Adryana Knights both collected a team-high 10 points versus Pacheco.

Jasmine Moore and Ariel Knights tallied seven and six points, respectively.

Natalia Cortez and Callie Nunes finished with four points apiece.

Rayohna Sagapolu and Kaylee Holloway had two points each.
The Bulldogs led 20-3 at halftime.

Ceres High outscored Pacheco 25-9 during the final 16 minutes.

"The girls played great defense," Borden said.

Dawgs stay unbeaten at 14-0
Ceres High School's freshman girls basketball team has yet to meet its match this season.

The Bulldogs improved to 14-0 on the year and 7-0 in Western Athletic Conference play after posting a 47-6 victory over Pacheco on Thursday in Los Banos.

"We're undefeated right now," Ceres High head coach Kristen McClure said. "That's awesome. We want to work on fundamentals and get the girls prepared for the next level. Winning is a bonus."

Breanna Moreno and Aliyah Smith both scored a team-high 12 points for the Bulldogs.

Julia Pata and Angelita Cerrillo contributed seven and six points, respectively.

Alondra Arroyo, Ishvir Chahal, Alexis Contreras, Dominique Koeurn and Raimee Mendoza all had two points.

Ceres High raced to a 26-6 lead in the opening period. Moreno accounted for the Bulldogs' first six points.

Ceres High outscored Pacheco 21-0 during the final three quarters.

"We worked together as a team," McClure said. "Our full-court defense is really good. It's the best I've seen in a while."

Ceres High will face host Livingston (Feb. 4) and visiting Central Catholic (Thursday) this week.
Both games will begin at 4:30 p.m.

"We're always confident going into games," McClure said. "We know how we can play. We have a good team."
