It didn't take long for Oakdale High baseball and softball teams to make their presence known at the postseason level. The baseball boys silenced River City 5-1 on Thursday in the first round of the Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV playoffs at Tony Zupo field in Lodi. Just a few miles south, Oakdale's softball team blasted past both Central Catholic and Ceres with a pair of stunning 10-0 shutouts at the Arnaiz Softball complex in Stockton.

The victories propelled both programs deeper into the postseason.

The Oakdale baseball team plays Saturday for the first of a 'best two out of three' series with Vista del Lago in the SJS semifinals.

The softball team faces Valley Oak League rival, Sierra today, May 18, in their own championship semifinal.
