HUNTINGTON BEACH — It's been an interesting three-day work week for the Ocean View boys' basketball team, one that took the Seahawks from one end of the playing spectrum, to the other. It all began Monday with a home nonleague game against cross-town rival Huntington Beach, continued Wednesday with a key Golden West League game at Segerstrom and concluded Friday with another league contest against visiting Santa Ana. Ocean View gave up a season-high in points Monday against Huntington in an 81-72 loss.

The 2011 Little League District 62 All-Stars Tournament is about to go on hiatus for the Fourth of July weekend, but not until a few more games are played Thursday at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley and Marina Park in Huntington Beach. On Tuesday, Huntington Valley and Ocean View continued their winning in Majors play, Ocean View and Costa Mesa National each posted their second tournament wins in 10/11 action, Huntington Valley and Robinwood rolled onward in the 9/10 division and Huntington Valley, Seaview, Westminster and Ocean View were still going strong in the Junior tournament.

HUNTINGTON BEACH - In the days leading up to the start of the boys' basketball playoffs, Ocean View co-head coach Tim Walsh was a bit wary of his team's first-round opponent. The Seahawks, the top seed in the CIF Southern Section Division 2AA playoffs, drew a Redondo Union squad that, on paper, looked anything but threatening. At just 10-16, these Sea Hawks from the South Bay figured to be a push over. Walsh, however, knew better. It was a team, he said, that had defeated Edison and gave highly-regarded Crespi all it could handle during the regular season.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Ben Askelson hit a massive home run in the bottom of the seventh inning Wednesday night to give Big Sky Little League a 1-0 win over Ocean View in the U.S. semifinal of the Little League Baseball World Series. "It's better to lose tonight than in an elimination game," Ocean  View Manager Jeff Pratto said. "We just didn't hit the ball. " Ocean View, the West champion from Huntington Beach, must play that elimination game at 5 p.m. PDT Thursday against local favorite Keystone Little League team from Clinton County, Pa., a team that drew more than 40,000 in its opening game last week.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — It wasn't looking pretty for Ocean View in the early stages of Thursday's girls' basketball nonleague game against Laguna Beach. No, not with the visiting Breakers starting to quickly pull away in the second half — and seemingly comfortably, too, from what had been a close game. The Seahawks were struggling on offense, giving up some easy buckets defensively, and appeared to be heading toward their ninth defeat of the season after digging themselves into an 11-point hole.

When the Ocean View softball team dropped an early Golden West League showdown at home to Segerstrom in early April, it forced the Seahawks to immediately play catch-up in the chase for the 2013 league crown. That 5-0 loss on April 11 put Ocean View and Segerstrom one game behind Loara, which, in a league opener two days earlier, had edged Segerstrom, 1-0. That win gave Loara early confidence, and early league lead, as they took a 4-0 record into the final game of the first half of league play.

The road to the Sunset League softball championship is never an easy one to navigate and for the Huntington Beach Oilers, consecutive road trips to the diamonds of title contenders last week could have been potential roadblocks. The Oilers, however, passed both tests. Huntington zoomed into first place in the league standings by winning both games, most recently, taking a 5-2 victory at Edison April 24. The win came on the heels of a 1-0 shutout win April 22 at defending champ Marina.

While most local schools are on a break from league play during spring break, Ocean View High continued its journey though its Golden West League season Tuesday. The Seahawks had the chance to move back into a tie for first place when it met league-leader Loara, but couldn't take advantage of the opportunity and dropped a 6-0 game to the host Saxons. Ocean View got off to a promising start. Braydon Salzman started the game with a double and moved over to third on a single by Brian Schlosser.

In forging a three-game win streak over the past 10 days, a run that had taken Ocean View to a share of first place in the Golden West League baseball standings, the Seahawks played with a focused purpose and didn't let little nuances bother them. Friday at Gibbs Field, the Seahawks got away from that mentality against visiting Orange. Ocean View fell behind early against the Panthers, rallied but came up a run shy, in a 4-3 loss. The Seahawks had runners in scoring position throughout, but couldn't sustain any type of big rally.

It was three years ago this coming summer, that Huntington Beach took center stage nationally and internationally, on the youth sports scene. In late-August of 2011, the Ocean View Little League All-Star team (11-12 year-olds) made it all the way to Williamsport, Pa., for the Little League Baseball World Series. Ocean View not only qualified for the tournament, but also won the coveted title. Since that time, the 13 members of that memorable squad have all moved on. Each, now, is in high school, several at the same school, Huntington Beach High, and although not all are walking the halls on the same campus, they all have one thing in common: all 13, are still playing baseball.
