Wrestling: San Fernando banned from playoffs

January 27, 2011 |  7:24 am

The City Section rules committee has banned the San Fernando High wrestling team from participating in this year's playoffs as punishment for the team's using an ineligible player over the past four years.

The program was previously put on two years' probation and forced to vacate its 2010 City title. The rules committee also required San Fernando's administration to "submit documentation to the rules committee outlining the steps that will be taken at the school to ensure that the circumstances leading to the evidence of a 'lack of administrative oversight' will not recur."

The rules committee also banned Coach Fernando Gonzalez from attending all tournaments for the 2011-12 season.
