Ceres High School's varsity boys golf team won 11 of 12 matches on its way to finishing in first place in the Western Athletic Conference dual standings.

The Bulldogs wrapped up the WAC regular season with a 173-193 win over Livingston on Monday at St. Stanislaus Golf Course.

Jacob Langan led Ceres High with a 4-over-par 31.

Gary Condit, Jake Nevarez, James Cervantez and Jayden Panyanouvong shot 33, 36, 34 and 39, respectively.

"Our team has been pretty consistent this year," Bulldogs first-year head coach Abel Maestas said. "We don't take any opponent for granted."

Ceres High defeated crosstown-rival Central Valley 163-188 on Thursday at St. Stanislaus Golf Course.

"We want to win every match regardless of the opponent," Maestas said.

Condit earned low-medalist honors with a 1-over-par 28.

Panyanouvong, Braden Hurst, Nevarez and Cervantez shot 32, 33, 34 and 36, respectively.

Derek Weis led the Hawks with a 4-over-par 31.

Noah Postley, Jose Castillo, Aman Dosanjh and Dorian Bowmer shot 36, 37, 41 and 43, respectively.

The Bulldogs competed shorthanded against the Hawks as Langan and Zach Chapman missed the contest due to illness.

"I was concerned," Maestas said. "It's a good thing we have depth. We just needed to shoot our average or better to ensure that we won. Central Valley has improved every week. Their coach (Mike Holliday) is doing a great job."

Ceres High posted a 171-216 victory against visiting Patterson on Wednesday.

Nevarez paced the Bulldogs with a 30.

Condit, Langan, Panyanouvong and Cervantez rounded out Ceres High's scoring with rounds of 31, 35, 36 and 39, respectively.

"I can't be more proud of my team," Maestas said. "They've done a fantastic job all year."

Central Valley closed out the WAC dual campaign on Monday, topping third-place Los Banos 266-275 at Pheasant Run Golf Course in Chowchilla.

Postley carded a team-best 42 for the Hawks, who finished fifth in the conference standings (4-8).

Weis, Castillo, Efrain Garcia and Ricardo Briseno shot 45, 51, 53 and 75, respectively.
