The Oakdale Leader - - SPORTS - By DENNIS D. CRUZ dcruz@oak­dale­leader.com

Com­plet­ing an­other suc­cess­ful sea­son, the Oak­dale Lady Mus­tangs girls golf team has cap­tured its sec­ond con­sec­u­tive Val­ley Oak League (VOL) ti­tle. The girls re­cently wrapped up the league cam­paign, go­ing 14-0. The team’s win­ning streak has reached 33 dat­ing back to 2015. The team played host to the VOL Cham­pi­onship Tour­na­ment on Mon­day, Oct. 16 where they hosted all eight teams in the league at Oak­dale Golf and Coun­try Club. Much like they have over the last two-plus sea­sons, the girls showed their dom­i­nance and won the tour­na­ment by 66 strokes over sec­ond place East Union.

As a unit, the girls shot a com­bined 422 strokes on the day. All five of the Lady Mustang golfers placed in the top eight on the day. Taylor Ste­wart fin­ished the tour­na­ment on top of the leader­board, card­ing a 78 on the day and won the Val­ley Oak League’s Most Valu­able Player for the sec­ond year in a row. Oak­dale’s stel­lar day con­tin­ued with Madi Blanc (82), An­drea York (84) and Shealyn Han­ra­han (85) fin­ish­ing third, fourth and fifth over­all re­spec­tively. Al­lie Den­ning (93) fin­ished in eighth place out of 50 golfers.

“Coach Lee McGhee and I have been very for­tu­nate to be able to work with an out­stand­ing group of young ladies,” Coach Jeremy Fields said of the team. “All ten girls on our team this year have worked to­ward team suc­cess, by build­ing good re­la­tion­ships, es­tab­lish­ing a re­lent­less work ethic, and pur­su­ing their goals with a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude that re­flects our school and community val­ues. We will con­tinue to work and im­prove at the sport of golf but will also en­joy our time to­gether as a team and see how far this wave will take us.”

This week the girls hosted the 2017 Sac-Joaquin Sec­tion Di­vi­sion III Tour­na­ment at Oak­dale Golf and Coun­try Club.
