Freshmen Mariah Trevino, Edith Larranaga and Karina Estrada made their debut with Ceres High School's varsity girls soccer team this past week.
Trevino, Larranaga and Estrada started every game while leading the Bulldogs to a third-place finish in Group D at Pitman's Extreme Spring Tournament in Turlock.
Mariah and Edith are midfielders.
Karina contributes on defense.
"I've never seen them play before," Ceres High head coach Miguel Saldate said. "They surprised me. They did awesome. They helped out a lot."
The Bulldogs amassed a 2-2-0 record at the Pitman tourney.
Ceres High lost 2-0 to Oakdale and shut out Hilmar 1-0 on Friday.
Ceres High edged Turlock 2-1 and lost 4-1 to River City on Saturday.
"The girls did a great job," Saldate said. "There was a lot of communication. I'm very happy with the scores."
Miranda Wilds, a second-year starter, accounted for three of Ceres High's four goals.
Trevino scored once.
"I have faith and confidence in her (Wilds)," Saldate said. "She's a very fast player. She knows what to do once she has the ball at her feet."
