It’s becoming a dynasty. Oakdale High’s varsity girls track and field program extended their streak of conference wins to 56 straight on April 5 during a dominant win over Manteca. The program went on to easily outpoint a field of 16 local teams for top honors at the Modesto Junior College Invitational three days later.
The team, which is supported by a terrific collection of sprinters, distance runners, jumpers and throwers, is easily one of the best squads in the section across all divisions and a clear favorite to snare a Sac-Joaquin Section divisional title later this season.
The girls earn collective Athlete of the Week recognition from The News for their efforts in 2012.
