Ceres High’s varsity girls golf program had two players earn individual playoff berths this fall.
Junior Ariana Medina tied for 11th, while senior Alex Potts placed 21st at the Sac-Joaquin Section Division-IV Tournament on Oct. 22 at the Yolo Fliers Golf and Country Club in Woodland.
Medina shot a 107.
She finished ahead of 34 other golfers.

“I’m pretty happy with how I did,” Ariana said. “But I know I could have done better. The girls I was playing with were super good. I got nervous and didn’t drive the ball as well as I should have. I could have gotten a 90. I just needed to relax.”
Medina carded a 135 on her way to a 32nd-place finish at Divisionals in 2017.
The tournament was staged at Cold Springs Golf and Country Club in Placerville.
“Last year, I shot above a 120,” Medina said. “I just wanted to post a lower score this season. The course wasn’t as challenging as the one I played on last year. It was more flat and it was easier to get the ball closer to the greens.”
Medina will be vying for her third straight trip to Divisionals in 2019.
“It’s special making it two years in a row,” she said. “I had a feeling I was going to make it again. This year was easier.”
Potts fired a 125 while representing Ceres High for the final time.
Medina and Potts helped lead the Bulldogs to a third-place finish at the 2018 Western Athletic Conference Year-End Tournament.
