Lawndale Self-Reported Violations To The CIF
November 5, 2015

The reason Culver City High is suddenly close to becoming the 2015 Ocean League football champion is that Lawndale High has forfeited four victories, including league wins over Culver City and Santa Monica.
Coupled with Culver’s victory over Hawthorne last Friday the Centaurs prevail in tiebreakers. With a win over Beverly Hills this Friday Culver would become the champion and most likely would receive a first round playoff home game.
The South Bay Daily Breeze explained Lawndale’s problem in its newspaper earlier this week.
It centered on transfer paperwork submitted by the parents of a player. Transfer paperwork that was allegedly falsified.
“Due to incomplete and erroneous information supplied to the school by the parents of a student we have self-reported to the CIF,” Lawndale principal Paula Hart Rodas told the Daily Breeze.
At the time the story broke Lawndale had an 8-1 record.
