Ceres High's baseball team played 16 games in four weeks this summer.

"I was happy with the commitment," Bulldogs head coach Clinton Goblirsch said. "They want to be out there. They want to get better. That will be good for us in the long run."

The season got underway on June 6 and ended on June 30.

Ceres High compiled a 3-1 record at the Vermeulen Tournament at Downey High School.

The Bulldogs went 1-2-1 at the Hampson Tournament at Gregori.

Ceres High collected two wins, one loss and one tie at the Downey Summer Warmup Tournament.

"We showed we're capable of playing at a high level in all areas of the game," Goblirsch said.

The Bulldogs' roster featured 22 players, including varsity returnees Adrian Lujan, Ismael Ontiveros, Ricky Lopez, Blane Abeyta, Steven Brown, Brock DeWitt, Zach Kommavong and Haadyn Martinez.

Caleb Cannella, Vincent Guerrero, Adrian Magdaleno, Brock Moore, Andrew Nowaya, Nicholas Webb, Victor Woodbridge, Dalton Durossette and Josh Pernetti also contributed.

Cannella, Guerrero, Magdaleno, Moore, Nowaya, Webb and Woodbridge suited up for the JV Bulldogs' baseball team during the 2015-16 school year.

Durossettte and Pernetti are freshmen.

"Our goal was to improve," Goblirsch said. "For the most part, we played pretty good baseball throughout the summer."

Ceres High posted an 11-15 overall record and placed fourth in the conference standings (3-9) this past spring.

The 2017 Bulldogs will have high expectations. "We have a lot of returners coming back that will provide leadership," Goblirsch said.
