Ceres High School's junior-varsity softball team captured the Western Athletic Conference championship during the 2013-14 school year.

The Bulldogs accomplished the feat with a 3-0 victory over host Patterson on April 17.

Ceres High's varsity squad locked up first place in the WAC on the same day, too.

"This is my first year coaching," JV head coach Nicole Jenkins said. "I didn't know what to expect. I'm definitely having a lot of fun. They're a great group of girls."

The Bulldogs posted a perfect 12-0 record in WAC play.

"They've done fantastic," Jenkins said. "They've improved every single game. They soak up everything we tell them. Their passion for the game is outstanding. You have to love the game to be able to play it."

Pitcher Callie Nunes and catcher Adryana Knights filled key roles.

"Callie has done wonders for our team," Jenkins said. "She's amazing on the mound. She works really hard. Adryana's a wall. She doesn't let anything get by her."

Nunes totaled six strikeouts and allowed two hits during visiting Ceres High's 3-0 shutout of Patterson.

Callie accounted for two of the Bulldogs' runs as she scored on a pair of Mandy Alcorn sacrifice flies.

Ariel Knights tripled and scored on twin sister Adryana Knights' sac fly.

"I couldn't ask for a better season," Jenkins said. "It's unbelievable."

Best friend Brittany Weatherford and brother Kevin Jenkins were members of Nicole's coaching staff.
