Mystery at San Gabriel, all girls basketball coaches fired; school officials not explaining the reason why

San Gabriel High School athletic director Patty Hill confirmed Monday that the entire San Gabriel High School girls basketball coaching staff – from varsity to the freshman level – was fired after an incident during a junior varsity game against El Monte on Dec. 9, though Hill refused to give details.
Hill referred all questions to the Alhambra Unified School District, which didn’t return calls Monday. San Gabriel football coach Keith Jones subsequently took over as the girls varsity head coach on an interim basis, but has been replaced by Jennifer White, recently cleared by the Alhambra Unified School District to take over as the varsity coach.
It isn’t known how many coaches were fired and have been replaced. As recently as Dec. 18, San Gabriel canceled a junior varsity contest against South Pasadena due to a “lack of coaches,” according to South Pasadena athletic director Ralph Punaro.

    San Gabriel High is NOT a part of the San Gabriel Unified School District!!! It belongs to the lowly ALHAMBRA Unified School District. Please check your facts before you slam the SGUSD!!

    Why is San Gabriel in Alhambra Unified?

  • Someone who knows


    The San Gabriel School District was a K-8 district until they seceded from the Alhambra High School District back in the mid 1990s.

    Gabrielino HS opened and took those kids that used to attend SGHS. This cause the AUSD to redraw their boundaries and most of the Garvy School District kids now go to San Gabriel High and now Keppel draws from mostly the Monterey Park schools that are in the Alhambra School District.

    BTW, virtually all of SGHS’s property is in the city of Alhambra and the southern end of the campus even abuts the Alhambra City Yards.

  • The Facts

    Before this gets out of hand…no “crimes” were committed. The incident involved premeditated bad judgment, a cover-up, a total disrespect for sportsmanship, character, and fair-play. There was nothing that would result in any type of criminal prosecution, only things that would make John Wooden cringe.

  • HAHA

    The teacher spelling teacher wrong is a clear example of our jacked up public schools.

    The truth of the story is that the JV coach played the female FS coach in a JV game. San Gabriels teams are really weak this year and the coach was trying to win a game. The problem is that the Varsity coach knew about it and not only did nothing about it but he did not report the issue to his AD. Bad judgement by a young staff.

  • SeenThat

    It’s true that all their teams suck, but that’s not the point! In my wildest dreams I could never imagine a coach playing in a high school game. This is the stuff they make bad movies about! Btw who won the game? What was the coachs stat line?

    That is pretty funny/sad at the same time. Maybe next time the San Gabriel team can pull a Juwanna Man.

  • tcchamps


    I head the coach was a dude and they lost.

  • Lets be honest

    San Gaybriel Sucks!!! They cheat at all their sports. Especially football. They illegally recruit players out of their district. Lame!!!

  • tcchamps

  • Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
