Ceres High School's varsity girls golf team upped its Western Athletic Conference record to 4-0 this past week.

Favored to win the WAC title because of their talent and experience, the Bulldogs handled El Capitan and Livingston.

"That's our goal," head coach Randy Cerny said. "We can't take anybody for granted. We have to play our best golf on a daily basis."

Caitlin Pfaff, 2013 and 2012 WAC MVP, fired a career-best 1-under-par 26 during Ceres High's 131-174 victory over newcomer El Capitan on the top-nine course at River Oaks.
Pfaff had three birdies, four pars and two bogeys.

"We've never had a girl from any team shoot below par out there," Cerny said. "She was shaking. She was pretty excited. She's playing really well right now. There's a lot of room for her to improve her game."

Bulldog teammates Erica Hogner, Abigail Nou and Hannah Smith shot 33, 35 and 37, respectively.

Salina Carbaugh led the previously-unbeaten Gauchos (3-1) with a 9-over-par 36.

Marcelina Mariano, Lauren Miller and Phoebe Morris shot 40, 47 and 51, respectively.

Pfaff, Nou, Hogner and Brittany Turnbow propelled Ceres High past visiting Livingston, 134-155, on Sept. 9.

Caitlin led the Bulldogs with a 1-over-par 28.

Nou, Hogner and Turnbow finished with rounds of 33, 35 and 38, respectively.

Lexi Gonzalez led the Wolves with a 9-over-par 36.
Suzy Gaeta (37), Maribel Valenica (41) and Emily Padilla (41) rounded out Livingston's scorecard.

Ceres High will compete at the WAC Mid-Season Tournament next Monday at Merced Golf&Country Club.

"We can't look past other teams," Cerny said. "Hopefully, we play our best golf. It would be a missed opportunity if we didn't win it."
