Ceres High School's varsity boys tennis team captured its third consecutive Western Athletic Conference title this past week.
The visiting Bulldogs secured the WAC's No. 1 playoff seed with an 8-1 victory against crosstown-rival Central Valley on April 14.
Ceres High improved to 26-0 on the year and finished undefeated in WAC play (12-0) for the second year in a row.
The Bulldogs also notched their 31st consecutive league win.
"It's pretty cool," said Alick Liang, Ceres High's No. 3 singles player. "We win a lot. But we work hard. Our team is so strong because we're deep."
The Hawks (9-3) tied for second place in the WAC standings with Central Catholic. The two teams will play a tiebreaker match on April 28 to determine the conference's No. 2 and 3 playoff seeds.
The Bulldogs won all six singles and two of three doubles matches versus the Hawks.

"We have a great team," McCaig said. "We play every single match like it's our last."
Ceres High improved its all-time record against Central Valley to 16-0.
The Bulldogs will participate in the playoffs for the fifth straight year.
The Hawks will make their first-ever postseason appearance.
Ceres High advanced to the finals of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division-II Tournament last season.
"We're successful in this area," Liang said. "Winning a section title will boost our recognition. We're not really acknowledged. Tennis is not that popular of a sport at Ceres High. Even my friends don't know how good we are."
