The Hawks tied for first place with Los Banos and Livingston.

"I knew it wasn't impossible," Central Valley head coach Veronica Moreno said. "They earned it."

Sophomore Kelsy Naranjo and freshman Olivia Gil both earned first-team all-conference honors by virtue of their top-eight performances at the WAC Championships.

Central Valley finished in second place with a team score of 59 at the conference finals on Oct. 25.

Kelsey placed seventh with a time of 14 minutes, 26 seconds on the 2-mile course at Ceres River Bluff Regional Park.

Olivia was eighth (14:36).

Natalia Tamayo (14:54), Karla Martinez (15:16), Claudia Gomez (15:30), Raquel Barrera (15:44), Adriana Huaracha (16:06), Ketzia Naranjo (16:10), Isabella Pelayo (16:36), Guadalupe Gonzalez (16:43), Aimee Carranza (18:04), Kareslie Rendon (19:16) and Nia Caraway (19:21) took 11th, 14th, 19th, 20th, 22nd, 24th, 30th, 31st, 38th, 44th and 46th, respectively.

The Hawks compiled a 3-2 en route to a third-place finish during the WAC dual-meet season.

Central Valley beat Pacheco (17-54), Patterson and Ceres.

Patterson and Ceres High didn't have full teams.
