Ceres High School's varsity boys tennis team is inching closer to claiming its second straight Western Athletic Conference title and third in the last four years.
The Bulldogs moved to 22-1 on the year and 9-0 in the WAC following last week's sweep of Pacheco and Livingston. Ceres High also set a program record for wins in a season, eclipsing the previous mark of 20.
Head coach Bryan Harden has yet to place an order for back-to-back championship T-shirts.
"That would be a little presumptuous," he said. "I don't count anything until it's in the books."

"We've been dominating every team," coach Harden said. "We were expecting to do this last year."
