She was the fourth-best individual golfer and out-shot 16 other Valley Oak League golfers who had qualified to the event.
Oakdale’s Jenna Heaton, who was fantastic at the VOL championships to ensure qualification, shot a 134 to best 25 other golfers who had made the trip.
Oakdale played Sonora on Monday for a shot at sole possession of the conference title, though results were not available at press time. The Lady Mustangs had stayed perfect in league by ousting Weston Ranch 3-0 in 25-13, 25-11, 25-8 scores on Oct. 24.
Hayley McIntyre had 11 kills and three blocks in the win while Kellie Gratigny managed 16 assists and eight points. Kaitlin Van Ryn chipped in nine points.
Oakdale is without standout outside hitter Brittany Carpenter, who badly injured her ankle earlier this month. Oakdale will look to play strong and carry their VOL momentum into the upcoming SJS playoffs.
