Gary Condit concluded his junior season with Ceres High’s varsity boys golf team earlier this month in Stockton.
Condit shot a 2-over-par 79 at the Sac-Joaquin Section Masters Championships in gusty winds on May 11 at The Reserve at Spanos Park.
“This gives me more motivation for next year,” he said.
Condit needed to post a score of 74 or lower at Masters to qualify for the Northern California Championships.
River Valley’s Trey Davis (72), East Union’s Tyler Griggs (72), Lodi’s Justin Gums (73) and Del Campo’s Bryce Kvick (74) secured individual berths.

“When you’re playing guys like that your competitive juices run a little more,” Condit said while talking about the talented field. “Just to get there was an honor. It was very humbling.”
Wind gusts exceeded 20 miles per hour at Masters.
“I was prepared going into it,” said Condit, who played a practice round at the The Reserve on May 9. “I had to play the ball lower because of the wind. I tried to grind out the best score I could.”
Gary collected birdies on the No. 16 and 4 holes.
His eagle putt on the 16th hole lipped out.
“He actually played pretty well considering the conditions,” Ceres High coach Scott Smith said. “They were horrible.”
Condit enjoyed a success-filled year with the Bulldogs once again.
He finished in sixth place (78) at the Sac-Joaquin Section Division-IV Tournament, staged on May 7 at Merced Golf & Country Club.
Gary earned low-medalist honors at the Western Athletic Conference Year-End Championships for the third year in a row. He carded a 9-over-par 81 on April 30 at Rancho Del Rey Golf Course.
He led the Bulldog to their third consecutive WAC overall championship.
Condit was also named the conference’s Most Valuable Player for the second straight season.
