La Salle baseball coach Harry Agajanian has been suspended for the rest of the season for what La Salle High is calling a violation of school policy.
“Coach Harry (Agajanian) is suspended as head coach of La Salle’s varsity baseball team until further notice for violation of school policy,” La Salle athletic director John Matheus said.
“Unfortunately, the administration just felt that we had to take action and we will discuss it further at the end of the season regarding next year.”
Without going into all the details, school officials can confirm that Agajanian’s suspension stems from a players refusal not to play in a game against Cantwell Sacred Heart. Agajanian sent that player to the bus after his refusal to play, and words were later exchanged. School officials met, and felt a suspension was warranted.
La Salle has two games left beginning today at home vs. Bishop Amat. They finish Friday at Bishop Amat. Assistant coach Junior Montes will take over as coach for what’s left of the rest of the season. Agajanian, who has coached the Lancers the last four seasons, could not be reached for comment. He’s expected to have a meeting with the principal today to discuss his future at La Salle.
