Dawgs improve to 10-0 overall
Rene Cortes helped Ceres High collect its 34th straight win in WAC play this past week.

Ceres High School's varsity boys tennis squad shut out visiting Los Banos 9-0 on March 10.

"We got an experienced team," Bulldogs head coach Bryan Harden said. "They have a lot of new players. They're a work in progress."

Ceres High (10-0) improved to 3-0 in the Western Athletic Conference standings.

The Bulldogs have won 34 straight WAC matches dating back to the 2012 season.

"We just want to attack what's in front of us," Harden said. "It's not really smart if you look ahead."

Ceres High swept six singles and three doubles matches while topping Los Banos.

Julio Ochoa beat Luke Sanchez 6-0, 6-0 in No. 1 singles play.

Nolan McCaig beat Steve Georgiou 6-0, 6-0 in No. 2 singles play.

Chase Harden beat Jack Gerotenberg 6-0, 6-0 in No. 3 singles play.

Rene Cortes beat Thomas King 6-0, 6-0 in No. 4 singles play.

Jose Ortega beat Loggan Pimentel 6-1, 6-0 in No. 5 singles play.

Bruno de la Torre beat Jared Haug 6-1, 7-5 in No. 6 singles play.

Dennis Phommalinh and Juan Jimenez beat Thomas Lemos and Ricky Hall 6-1, 6-2 in No. 1 doubles play.

Jorge Ruiz and Julian Rodriguez beat Kelvin Chempavathy and Giovanni Mesi 6-2, 6-2 in No. 2 doubles play.

Manuel Lozcano and Charles Lo beat Patrick Martinez and Micheal Butler 6-2, 6-2 in No. 3 doubles play.

"We're winning but we're not playing like we should be," coach Harden said. "We really haven't played our best tennis."

Ceres High will host crosstown-rival Central Valley this Thursday at 3 p.m.
