The winter sport season lives for Oakdale High senior DeWayne Finney on April 13.
After a prestigious selection to participate in the Madness in the Mother Lode All-Star Extravaganza at Columbia College, Finney will join Division IV Sac-Joaquin Section champion coach Ben Watson of Summerville and represent the Mustangs in Oakdale’s dark uniform on the away team.
Finney will play alongside 16 other players from Davis, Turlock, Johansen, Golden Valley, Calaveras, Escalon, Ripon, and Summerville in action against 18 players from Riverbank, Bret Harte, Ripon Christian, Sonora, Beyer, Enochs, Downey, East Union, Los Banos, Atwater and Central Catholic (Central Catholic coach Mike Wilson’s home team).
The All-Stars were selected by area coaches and will compete in their school uniforms without any joint practices. The game is slated for a 3 p.m. tip off at Columbia. General admission is $10, with a $5 fee for staff and students.
