Ceres High's varsity boys golf program successfully defended its Western Athletic Conference overall championship this past week.

The Bulldogs posted a team score of 422 en route to a first-place finish at the WAC Year-End Tournament on May 1 at Diablo Grande Ranch Golf Course.

Ceres High also won all six of the WAC's regular-season cluster tournaments.

"It's very impressive the way my teammates performed this year," Bulldogs' top golfer Gary Condit said. "We just love the game and winning. We're the first (boys golf) team to go back to back. It's great for our school. I hope we can go undefeated again next year. Our mentality is to make it three in a row."

Condit shot a 3-over-par 75 to lead all golfers at the WAC Year-End Tournament. "It's always been a tough course for me," Condit said. "I changed my strategy and it paid off. I played conservative. I hit my 3-wood off most of the tees."

Gary also placed first last year.

"It's fun to win," Condit said. "I want to be the best."

Bulldog teammates Jayden Panyanouvong, Braden Hurst, Jake Nevarez and Zac Chapman shot 85, 86, 87 and 89, respectively.

"We knew we had the talent to win," Condit said.

Crosstown-rival Central Valley (603) placed fifth. Thomas Carrillo led the Hawks with a 109. Jacob Hendrix (115), Johnny Velasquez (121), Jonathan Barragan (122) and Kadin Richardson (136) rounded out Central Valley's scorecard.
