Oakdale High's varsity softball team eased past Sierra in a 3-1 finale on Saturday to claim a Sac-Joaquin Section Division IV title at the Arnaiz Softball complex in Stockton.

The Mustangs dropped their first game of the day to Sierra, but since they were championship bracket finalists, Sierra would have had to beat them twice to take the honor.

Instead, Oakdale rallied behind terrific pitching, superb defense and timely hitting to finish a fourth victory over reigning D-IV champ, Sierra, this season.
