Ceres High's and Central Valley's varsity girls volleyball programs dropped their Western Athletic Conference openers last week.

Ceres High lost 3-0 (25-19, 25-16, 25-23) to defending WAC-champion Los Banos on Wednesday at Phil de la Porte Gymnasium.

Kyara Rodriguez led host Ceres High with 15 assists, 14 digs, one kill and one ace.

Diana Zarco added 14 digs, three kills, three assists and three aces.

Alyssa Stiles had 13 digs, five blocks, five kills and one ace.

Madison Nash had 12 digs, six kills, one block and one assist.

Siriana Gudino had eight digs, seven kills, three blocks and three aces.

Mya Robinson had seven digs, three kills and one ace.

Karina Pulido had five digs.

Yanelli Rodriguez had four digs.

Isabel Diazdeleon had one block.

"I am so excited about my team," Ceres High head coach Darlene Tobler said. "We have a few kinks to work out and room to grow, but we are definitely headed in the right direction. This team is very positive, supportive and hardworking 100 percent of the time. They're a great example for our JV and frosh teams. I can't wait to see their improvement and success this season."

Central Valley lost 3-1 (25-20, 25-17, 23-25, 25-23) at Livingston on Wednesday.

"The girls played hard but struggled with the last minute adjustment of Mariana Garibay not being able to complete Game 1," Hawks head coach Regina Selfridge said.

Garibay, Central Valley's top player, had one kill before exiting the contest to prevent further injury to her sore wrist.

Anysia Lopez led the Hawks with 14 kills and three aces.

Jacquelyn Sanchez collected 10 digs and three aces.

Nayeli Ramos had eight kills and three aces.

Brianna Quiroz had seven kills and six aces.
