Ceres High School's varsity boys golf team continued its tradition of qualifying for postseason play.

Central Valley's Anthony Bonales added to his already-impressive resume.

The Bulldogs advanced to the Sac-Joaquin Section playoffs for the fourth consecutive year after finishing in third place at the Western Athletic Conference Year-End Tournament last Wednesday at Manteca Park Golf Course.

Ceres High posted a team score of 499.

"I'm very happy," Bulldogs head coach Scott Smith said. "We've had a successful season."

Bonales captured his third Western Athletic Conference individual title, tournament championship and Most Valuable Player award.

Anthony fired a 1-under-par 71.

Bonales was the second-best player in the WAC last season.

"He's just playing really solid golf," Hawks head coach Mike Holliday said. "He's remarkably consistent. His goals are beyond the league stuff."

Andre Torres paced the Bulldogs last week.

Torres shot a 23-over-par 95.

Justin Moore (96), Matt Thornberry (100), Dominic Durossette (104) and James Cervantez (104) rounded Ceres High's scorecard.

Central Valley (519) placed fifth at the WAC Year-End Tournament.

Bonales led the way followed by Jacob Craig (96), Teven Willey (110), Cameron Ahart (121) and Diego Martinez (121).

"Everybody could have done a little better," Holliday said. "Nobody had a spectacular day."

Central Catholic (378) successfully defended its WAC team title.

Los Banos (463), Patterson (505), Livingston (536) and Pacheco (627) took second, fourth, sixth and seventh, respectively.
