League Principals Uphold Tustin's Forfeits

November 14, 2001|Martin Henderson

Golden West League principals met Tuesday morning and voted 4-1 to uphold their original decision to not send Tustin High to the Southern Section Division VI football playoffs after the Tillers forfeited three league victories.

Tustin, 7-3 on the field but 4-6 with the forfeits--and 0-4 in league--would have finished second in the league.

League President George Green, principal at league-champion Westminster, could not be reached Tuesday afternoon. Although a hearing in Orange County Superior Court scheduled for today seeking a temporary restraining order against the Golden West League and the Southern Section was removed from the calendar, attorney Parry. G. Cameron of the firm Miller and Holguin, said players' parents were considering their options.

Tustin forfeited victories for using an ineligible player--a nonstarter who falsified documents to prove his residence in the school district.
