Central Valley's varsity boys golf program turned in a repeat performance by finishing in fifth place at the Western Athletic Conference Year-End Tournament for the second year in a row.

The Hawks posted a team score of 538 at the 2018 WAC Championships on Monday at Rancho Del Rey Golf Club in Atwater.

"If we would have beat Los Banos today, we would have tied for fourth place," Central Valley first-year head coach Scott Edwards said. "We're getting better. We've become consistent."

Thomas Carrillo led the Hawks with a 27-over-par 99.

"That's his best score of the year outside of St. Stanislaus," Edwards said.

Central Valley teammates Julian Ruiz, Kadin Richardson, Anthony Ocanas and Navraj Dosanjh posted rounds of 107, 108, 111 and 113, respectively.

"I'm not disappointed because our guys played well," Edwards said. "We wanted to compete and I think we've done that."

Crosstown-rival Ceres High (452) placed first at the WAC Championships for the third consecutive season.

The Bulldogs won their third straight conference overall title.

"Ceres has a really good lineup," Edwards said. "There's not an award for it, but we're probably the most improved team in the WAC. Our team scores were 80-100 strokes less on each course this year."
