Ceres High School's varsity girls golf team wrapped up the first half of the Western Athletic Conference dual season last week.

The second-place Bulldogs improved to 5-1 after collecting wins against Central Valley, Los Banos and Patterson.

The Bulldogs won the crosstown showdown, 145-188, on the front-nine course at River Oaks on Thursday.

"We don't want to get beat by anybody, especially Central Valley," head coach Randy Cerny said. "They have a young team. They're building for the future. My team is more seasoned."

Caitlin Pfaff, Ceres High's top player and the reigning WAC MVP, earned low-medalist honors.

She carded a 5-over-par 32.

Bulldog teammates Erica Hogner, Abigail Nou and Hannah Smith chipped in with scores of 35, 36 and 42, respectively.

Marlen Diaz led the fifth-place Hawks (1-4) with a 12-over-par 39.

Macie Robinson, Daniela Moreno and Georgina Salgado shot 47, 49 and 53, respectively.

"All of our players are new except for Marlen," Central Valley head coach Kelly Wheelock said.

The Bulldogs have won their last five matches versus the Hawks.

Ceres High defeated host Los Banos by 64 strokes, 210-274, at Forebay on Wednesday.

Pfaff led the way with a 47.

Hogner, Nou and Brittany Turnbow posted rounds of 52, 54 and 57, respectively.

The Bulldogs prevailed, 220-255, while battling the Tigers on the Diablo Grande Legends Course on Sept. 10.

Pfaff paced Ceres High with a 46.

Hogner (55), Nou (59) and Dania Medina (60) rounded out the Bulldogs' scoring.
