Ceres High's varsity girls golf team continued its run of dominance versus crosstown-rival Central Valley last week.

The Bulldogs won the first of two WAC regular-season dual meetings versus the Hawks, 224-271, on Thursday at St. Stanislaus Golf Course.

Ceres High collected its 11th straight victory against Central Valley dating back to the 2011 season.

"There was no stress on us," Bulldogs head coach Randy Cerny said. "Central Valley has a young team. We knew that going into the match and anticipated getting a win. We didn't play exceptionally well."

Monika Ramirez led Ceres High with a 13-over-par 41.

"She went out on her own and played an additional round of golf after practice on Wednesday," Cerny said. "I do think it helped her on Thursday. She was prepared. I'm proud of her."

Bulldog teammates Hannah Smith, Vanessa Ramos, Rose Sammons and Ariana Medina shot 44, 45, 46 and 48, respectively.

Karina Avalos led the Hawks with an 18-over-par 46.

Central Valley teammates Katherine Nou, Cristina Valtierra, Emily Almanza and Fiona Gay shot 49, 56, 58 and 62, respectively.

The second-place Bulldogs improved to 4-1 in the WAC.

The last-place Hawks dropped to 0-5 in the conference standings.

"We always want to make sure we do well against Central Valley because they're our rivals," Cerny said.
