Lynwood Coach Will Not Be Rehired

October 16, 1994

Lynwood High girls' basketball Coach Ellis Barfield will not be rehired in the aftermath of a fatal accident involving a player on his summer team.

Tracey Myricks, 11, was killed in the July 23 accident near Las Vegas when a van carrying Barfield and 12 players from the Lynwood Running Rebels flipped after Michelle Allen fell asleep while driving. Allen, a coaching assistant, has been charged with involuntary manslaughter.

The trip involving 18 players from the Lynwood Development League, ranging in age from 11 to 17, was not sanctioned by the Southern Section or the Lynwood Unified School District.
