Ceres High's varsity girls golf team posted the third-best score at the Western Athletic Conference Year-End Tournament on Oct. 18 in Atwater.

"I'm not disappointed," Bulldogs head coach Randy Cerny said. "We were playing shorthanded and still came in third."

Bulldog senior Hannah Smith fired a 105 while tying for sixth place in the individual standings on the par-72 Rancho Del Rey Golf Course.

Senior Monika Ramirez (117), junior Rose Sammons (127), freshman Ariana Medina (141) and sophomore Alex Potts (152) placed 10th, 13th, 18th and 25th, respectively.

"I'm really proud of my whole team, especially Hannah and Monika," Cerny said. "We've been together for four years. They've both improved dramatically."

Ceres High finished second overall in the WAC's final standings.

The Bulldogs won eight of 10 matches en route to a runner-up finish during the conference's dual season.

Ceres High placed third at the WAC Mid-Season Tournament.

"We beat everybody this year, except for Livingston," Cerny said. "They went undefeated."

The Bulldogs also secured their seventh consecutive Sac-Joaquin Section playoff berth.

"That was our main goal for the season," Cerny said.

Unable to field a mandatory five-person lineup due to its lack of numbers, Central Valley's varsity girls golf program, along with Patterson failed to post team scores at the WAC Year-End Tournament.

Karina Avalos was the Hawks' top performer.

Avalos fired a 125 en route to a 12th-place finish.

Fiona Gay (23rd) and Katherine Nou (27th) shot 150 and 157, respectively.

Central Valley placed sixth in the final standings.

The Hawks didn't post a team score at the mid-season tournament.

Central Valley compiled a 2-8 record during the WAC dual season.
