STOCKTON – The fact that Weston Ranch only had three golfers didn't stop the four-time reigning Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV champions from posting some low numbers in their first outing of their year.

Returning to the postseason is on the top of both school's priority lists, only this season Ripon Christian will travel along a different path.
