Ceres High varsity boys golf standout Gary Condit continued his run of dominance against Western Athletic Conference competition last week.
Condit finished in first place at the Western Athletic Conference Mid-Season Tournament for the third year in a row. “I don’t mean to sound cocky but I expect to win every match because of my work ethic,” he said. “I take the game really serious. I put in extra time outside of school practice. Not a lot of other kids do that. It would be a letdown if I lost.”
Condit fired a career-best 2-over-par 74 at Diablo Grande on Friday.
“Diablo is a tough course,” he said. “There are a lot of tricky holes out there. I did my homework and was prepared. I played a practice round there the weekend before and shot a 77.”
Condit collected three birdies while shooting a 1-under-35 on the front nine at the WAC Mid-Season Tournament. He shot 3-over on the back nine.
“I’m pretty happy with my score,” Condit said. “I could have done better.”
Ceres High teammates Jayden Panyanouvong (88), Visanoukone Homsombath (88), Dylan Grubeck (103) and Haydon Swanson (109) rounded out Ceres High’s scorecard.
The three-time reigning WAC champion Bulldogs placed second overall in the team standings at the mid-season tournament.
First-place Johansen (459) edged out Ceres High (462) by just three strokes.
The Vikings have a three-point lead over the Bulldogs in the WAC’s overall standings.
“If we would have won, that would have put us in first place in league,” Condit said. “At best now, we could probably tie. It will be close. We’ll see them again at the end-of-season tournament.”
