Winter Sports Means Wrestling In Oakdale

Oakdale High School athletes excel at many sports. From football, which has made it to the CIF Section Championship game in back-to-back years, to the baseball program that won seven straight Valley Oak League titles in recent years, and the varsity girls track and field team, who literally ran away from the competition over the past decade. All very impressive, but the OHS varsity wrestling team has carved its own place in school history, putting a headlock on the competition, not only in the Valley Oak League, but on the entire Sac-Joaquin Section.

End Of The Trail For Football Mustangs

Unlike the Nov. 6 barnburner that totaled 79 points between them, Friday night's CIF Section Championship Game between Oakdale and Central Catholic proved to be an offensive struggle. At night's end, it was Central Catholic hoisting the much sought after blue banner, following a 21-7 victory at Lincoln High School of Stockton in the DIII title contest.

Fishing Report

For as many times that I've been fishing, one would think that I've pretty much seen it all when it came to launching a boat. Last weekend I saw something that I still can't believe ever happened. As I backed my trailer into the water to retrieve my boat, I watched as another boat drove right up onto my trailer as if it was his trailer. In disbelief, I walked over to him and said "that's my trailer." He did a double take, apologized, and backed his boat off of my trailer. On the positive side ...

Fishing Report

Recently while out fishing with a friend we talked about fishing equipment and purchasing new equipment. Like most things, as time has passed, improvements have been made and top of the line gear is now twice as expensive as it was ten years ago. I have a few friends that have to have the latest and greatest and honestly I'm not sure how they can afford it. I'm the type that will use something until it's no longer serviceable. In fact, I've got a few reels in my boat right now that are over 20 years ...

Fishing Report

The first year I started tournament fishing I went and purchased what I thought was good rain gear. It worked for a few trips, but wasn't exactly comfortable and started to fail within a year's time. The following year, once again I was in the market for rain gear. I wanted to get it right this time. I ended up asking around and was led to a pair of tops and bottoms that exceeded $500 for the set. I definitely wasn't excited about the price, but wanted to end my search for great rain gear once and ...
