Ceres High School's varsity girls golf program set a goal prior to the start of Western Athletic Conference play.

The Bulldogs won twice last week and improved to 10-0.

Ceres High needs to beat Central Valley and Pacheco to secure a perfect record in the WAC regular-season dual standings.

"We can't take anything for granted," head coach Randy Cerny said. "We have to play our best games on a consistent basis. And hope that in the end, we prevail."

Ceres High bested El Capitan by 28 strokes, 206-234, on Thursday at the Merced Golf and Country Club.

Caitlin Pfaff led the Bulldogs with a 47.

Erica Hogner, Hannah Smith and Abigail Nou shot 52, 53 and 54, respectively.
Salina Carbought led the Gauchos with a 46.

Marcelina Mariane, Lauren Maller and Phoebe Morris shot 50, 67 and 71, respectively.

Ceres High handled host Patterson, 200-245, at Diablo Grande Golf and Country Club on Oct. 7.

Nou paced the Bulldogs with a 45.

Pfaff, Smith and Hogner shot 50, 51 and 54, respectively.

Freshman Tatianna Tafoya paced the Tigers with a 46.

Chelsea Gregory (59), Isabelle Islas (70) and Alex Islas (70) rounded out Patterson's scorecard.

"Every single girl on my team is contributing," Cerny said. "They're playing their hearts out."

Ceres High will play a practice round on the back-nine course at Chowchilla's Pheasant Run Course, site for the 2014 WAC Year-End Tournament, this Thursday.

The tourney will be held on Oct. 23.

"I want the girls to be familiar with the course," Cerny said.
