It was a rough season for head basketball coach Justin Schwitters and the varsity Oakdale Lady Mustangs. In what got off to a promising start, winning five of their first six and going 11-5 throughout the first 16 games, including winning two Valley Oak League games (0-23 previously since 2012), things took a turn for the worse and the team members found themselves on a 10-game skid heading into Tuesday's season finale on Feb. 18. During the skid, Oakdale lost three of those games by four points or less, staying competitive but unable to nail down the wins.
