Ceres High's varsity track and field program enjoyed a successful start to the 2018 Western Athletic Conference dual-meet campaign.

The Bulldogs swept the Los Banos Tigers last Wednesday on the road.

"I'm very pleased," head coach Brett Johnson said. "We have a great group of kids that work hard."

Ceres High's girls team cruised to an 88-46 victory.

"I definitely thought it was going to be closer," Johnson said.

Alyssa Stiles placed first in the triple jump and long jump.

Freshman Rosie Bonales placed first in the 100 and 200.

Sophomore Mya Robinson placed first in the high jump.

She cleared a personal-best 4 feet, 8 inches.

"She went 4-4, 4-6 and 4-8 the last three meets," Johnson said. "She's improving. She's a hard worker. She's willing to listen to make changes that are needed."

Rachael Thomas placed first in the 800.

The Bulldogs' 4x100 relay team of Bonales, Allison Stiles, Alina Williams and Azar Harrison placed first.

Ceres High's boys team pulled away for a 79-57 win over Los Banos.

"We knew it was going to be a battle," Johnson said. "LB always has a solid team."

Javey Gomez soared a personal-best 5 feet, 6 inches en route to placing first in the high jump.

Gomez shattered his previous record by four inches.

"I'm so excited for him," Johnson said. "He's such a good kid."

The Bulldogs' 4x400 relay team of Kendrick Perata, Bryan Erenas, Aaron Alarcon and Luis Yepez placed first.

"Luis ran an amazing anchor, barely hold off LB at the line," Johnson said.

Daniel Yepez placed first in the 300 hurdles and second in the 110 hurdles.

Joseph Gutierrez placed first in the 1,600 and second in the 3,200.

Andrew Gibson placed second in the 100.

Ceres High will host Patterson next Wednesday.

"We're going to have to bring our A-game to get another win," Johnson said.
