Lady Mustangs Drop OT Hoops Thriller

The heartbreak of the Oakdale High School Lady Mustangs varsity basketball season continued this past week. Senior center Emery Sipe was sidelined with an undisclosed knee injury for the team's 59-55 overtime loss to visiting Weston Ranch on Tuesday night, Feb. 2.
