Ceres High School's varsity girls golf team had to settle for being second-best in the Western Athletic Conference in 2013 and 2012.

The Bulldogs wrapped up the WAC regular-season dual season with back-to-back victories.

Ceres High won all 12 of its league matches this year.
"It's a big deal," Bulldogs' star golfer Caitlin Pfaff said. "We're doing something that has never been done.
We're always going to be remembered as winners."
Ceres High topped crosstown-rival Central Valley, 130-165, on Oct. 14 at River Oaks Golf Course.

"I'm not surprised by it at all," Hawks head coach Kelly Wheelock said while talking about the Bulldogs' dominant run in WAC play. "I expected that. Their coach (Randy Cerny) does a good job keeping those girls together. We're young. We're going to get better."

Pfaff led the Bulldogs with a 3-over-par 30.

Abigail Nou, Erica Hogner and Hannah Smith chipped in with scores of 31, 32 and 37, respectively.

"We're playing our best golf," Pfaff said. "I'm really glad when my teammates do well."

Central Valley's Janita Vongphoumy led all golfers with a 1-over-par 28.

"I'm pleased," Vongphoumy said. "I started out pretty rough but got back on track. Overall, I did well. I try to have fun and enjoy my time out there."

Hawk teammates Arriana Ayala, Else Smith and Soraida Felix posted rounds of 39, 46 and 52, respectively.

Vongphoumy, a transfer from Rhode Island, compiled a near-perfect 6-1 record during the WAC dual campaign.

She split with Pfaff, the league's top player the past two seasons.

"I've won two league MVPs," Pfaff said. "This year is about my team. I can't be mad at anyone for playing good golf. In the beginning of the season, there was a lot of added pressure. Of course I want to beat her (Vongphoumy). I needed a reality check. I'm not always going to be a winner. I'm going to play golf in college and get my rear end handed to me."

"She (Pfaff) set the bar," Wheelock said. "She's always been the one to beat the last few years."

"It's been hard to adjust school-wise but my team has made it easier," Vongphoumy said. "My team is very welcoming. I'm trying to win for my school."

Ceres High defeated Pacheco 144-177 on Monday at River Oaks.

Pfaff carded a 7-over-par 34.

Hogner, Nou and Smith shot 35, 37 and 38, respectively.
Kaylin Lambert posted a 41 for the Panthers.

Jasmine Yruegas (45), Mystique Ortiz (45) and Marena Romero (46) rounded out Pacheco's lineup.

Ceres High's girls golf program has reached unprecedented heights under Cerny's guidance.

The Bulldogs have amassed a 48-12 record in WAC play since 2010.

"I'm so proud of these girls," Cerny said. "I got a great group. They play as a team. They're not catty with each other."

"They're a great team," Vongphoumy added.
