Oakmont Punches Playoff Ticket
TOWNSEND — It’s been quite a while — six years, to be exact — since the Oakmont Regional baseball team has reached the promised land of every interscholastic hardballer in the Commonwealth: getting the opportunity of playing their sport into the month of June. And for a time before 2013, the Spartans were regular participants in the postseason.
That long wait for a return to postseason play came to its end on Wednesday afternoon, as Oakmont clinched its berth thanks to a 14-3 win over host North Middlesex Regional at Schoppe Field.
The win lifts Oakmont to 9-5 overall (5-3 Mid-Wach C) with four games remaining, starting with Friday’s doubleheader against Groton-Dunstable Regional at Driscoll Park.
