Jeffrey Woods, who is charged with driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs and gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, was arrested following the Aug. 29, 2007, accident that killed eighth-grader Danny Oates.

HUNTINGTON BEACH — Ocean View High baseball coach Shane Borowski had a simple, yet all-too accurate description of Alfredo Sepulveda. "He was strike, get up there and throw the next strike, strike, get up there and throw the next strike," Borowski said. "His tempo was excellent." And the Seahawks provided plenty of run support for the sophomore right-hander, too, cruising to a 7-0 Golden West League victory over Santa Ana Friday at Ocean View High. Sepulveda allowed just three hits and one walk, striking out 12 while improving to 5-2. It was the kind of pitching performance that the Seahawks were definitely looking for after suffering a tough 5-4 loss to the Saints on the road Wednesday.
