South Pasadena principal says she received evidence that its football team was guilty of illegally videotaping La Canada’s practice

Above: South Pasadena players and cheerleaders celebrate Friday’s victory over La Canada believing they qualified for a playoff berth. They learned later that night the game would be forfeited.

Members of South Pasadena’s football team and its parents and supporters are still trying to sort out exactly why the school was forced to forfeit Friday’s 21-3 victory over rival La Canada in a game that determined an automatic playoff berth to this week’s CIF-Southern Section Central Division playoffs.

South Pasadena principal Janet Anderson sent an email to parents of the Tigers football team on Monday explaining that she received “evidence” that its football team had committed a violation of the CIF-SS Blue Book Rule 512 that prohibits teams from videotaping or taking still pictures of an opponents practice without consent of the participating school.

Anderson said she received a call from La Canada principal Ian Mcfeat on Thursday informing her of the alleged violation, but it is not clear if the allegation involves South Pasadena head coach Marty Konrad, one of his assistant coaches or Konrad’s brother Nick, who is not a member of the coaching staff.

Football Pairings: St. Francis, Maranatha get top seeds; Monrovia, San Marino seeded in Central


By Aram Tolegian
@AramTolegian on Twitter

The local high school football teams who were fortunate to make the CIF-Southern Section playoffs were handed their postseason assignments on Sunday. And judging by the matchups, it could be another banner year for the area.
High expectations abound across a myriad of divisions and things will get under beginning Thursday and Friday.
For Bishop Amat, the area’s consensus top team playing in Southern California’s top division, the good news came in the form of a first-round home game on Friday against Lakewood.
The Lancers finished in a three-way tie for the Mission League championship, but were made the league’s No. 2 entrant after tie-breaking coin flips. Amat enters the game at 7-3 and riding a five-game win streak. Lakewood is 6-4 and finished second in the Moore League.
“The order of happiness is: we’re in the playoffs and we have a home game,” Lancers head coach Steve Hagerty said. “Those are both good things. I don’t know anything about Lakewood, but we’re anxious to see what they look like (on film) and how we match up.
“Usually, my experience has been that the later (in the season) you play the Moore League teams, the better they executed with each passing week.”
St. Francis finished the regular season with a perfect 10-0 record. The Knights were rewarded by being given the No. 1 seed in the Southeast Division. They will host Mayfair (5-5) in Friday’s first round.
“It is nice,” St. Francis head coach Jim Bonds said of being made the top seed. “We were preseason No. 1 in the division and to be able to carry that through 10 games is pretty nice.
“I give our guys a lot of credit for being able to stay focused. Mayfair isn’t what I had on my bracket. I don’t know a lot about Mayfair, but at this time of the year, it’s all or nothing. Win or go home.”
Muir (6-4) will get a chance to avenge an early season loss to Cathedral (9-1) when the two teams meet in Friday’s first round at Cathedral High.
The Central Division is chalk full of local hopefuls with championship aspirations. Leading the way is Monrovia (9-1), which was made the No. 2 seed and will host Don Lugo.
San Marino (8-2), which finished second behind Monrovia in the Rio Hondo League, also got a home game and will host Claremont (6-4) on Friday.
Charter Oak (6-4) needed to win its last two regular season games to win the Hacienda League. The Chargers did just that and will host Colton elsewhere in the Central Division.
Glendora (8-2) was the No. 1-ranked team in the Central Division going into last week’s loss to South Hills. The Tartans did get a home game, though, and will host Summit. South Hills (6-4) will host Los Altos (5-5) on Friday at Walnut High.
Elsewhere in the Central, La Canada (6-4) visits No. 1 seed Colony. Bonita (6-4), which was awarded an at-large berth, plays at Kaiser. West Covina (7-3) hosts Chaffey.
The Valley has had a hammer lock on the Mid-Valley Division in recent years, but that may not be the case this season if seedings hold up.
Paraclete and Sierra Canyon, respectively, were made the top-two seeds. Pomona (6-4) won the Miramonte League and was made the No. 3 seed. The Red Devils host McAuliffe on Friday.
San Dimas (7-3), the division’s defending champion, will host Baldwin Park (6-4) in the first round. Northview (9-1) won the Valle Vista League and was given the No. 4 seed. The Vikings host at-large Brentwood.
Also in the Mid-Valley, Azusa (7-3) hosts El Monte (6-4) on Thursday. Rosemead (6-4) hosts Covina (6-4). La Puente (7-3) visits Montebello (6-4). Bassett (5-5) got an at-large berth and play at Paraclete.
Arroyo (4-6), which had a streak of 30 consecutive years in the playoffs, filed for an at-large bid after finishing third in the Mission Valley League and was denied.
If seedings hold up in the Northwest Division, then locals Maranatha (10-0) and Pasadena Poly (10-0) are on a championship game collision course.
Maranatha was made the top seed in the division and will host Mission Prep on Friday. Pasadena Poly is the No. 2 seed and gets a home game against Morro Bay.
Rio Hondo Prep (4-5) hasn’t had its typical successful season, but the Kares made the dance and will visit Big Bear on Friday.

Mayfair at St. Francis
Muir at Cathedral
La Canada at Colony
Claremont at San Marino
Don Lugo at Monrovia
Covina at Rosemead
Mission Prep at Maranatha
Rio Hondo Pep at Big Bear
Morro Bay at Pasadena Poly

South Pasadena’s football season is over

The South Pasadena High School football season is definitely over.
Tigers athletic director Greg Luna said on Saturday that Rio Hondo League principals determined CIF-SS rules were broken before Friday’s 21-3 victory against La Canada in a third-place showdown. The Tigers had to forfeit the victory.
“Administrators clearly thought they have enough supporting evidence for the league to warrant the decision,” Luna said. “We respect that decision. There are other implications still on our end.”
The Tigers also declined to submit an at-large entry playoff berth. With a 7-3 on-the-field record, they may have been one of the favorites to receive the Central Division’s lone spot.

South Pasadena administrator statement

South Pasadena will not be in the CIF-Southern Section playoffs despite finishing in third place in the Rio Hondo League and earning an automatic bid.
League officials ruled the Tigers out because of an unspecified rules violation. Tigers coach Martin Konrad was not at Friday’s 21-3 victory over La Canada. Apparently players from neither team knew about the ruling.
Here is a statement from principal Janet Anderson and athletic director Greg Luna:

Dear Tiger Football Families,
First of all, we would like to thank you for your unwavering support this season. What a remarkable season it has been with tonight’s game a beautiful jewel in the season’s crown. It is with very heavy hearts that we share with you what your sons have likely already shared. After their bus ride back home from La Canada, their coaches and the two of us met with the team. We acknowledged and celebrated their accomplishments and their joy. That made it all the harder to share with them that rather than continue into the CIF playoffs as the third place team, their season has come to an end.
Yesterday, we became aware that our school was accused of a violation of CIF regulations. We are continuing our investigation into the allegation. La Canada played tonight’s game under protest. Had they won, the protest would likely have been moot. With us winning the game, the Rio Hondo League leadership determined that SPHS would forfeit the game and La Canada would take the third place spot.
Tonight, we told the players that they did things correctly; the violations are not tied to their behavior. We also shared that since it is an ongoing investigation, there are details we will not be sharing at this time. Due to the time sensitive nature of playoff seeding, we do not expect there to be a change in this ruling. We are sending you information as quickly and as thoroughly as we can tonight, however brief it necessarily is.
Please help our players process this disappointment by highlighting the many stellar points experienced throughout this season.
We thank you for your understanding and continued support.
Janet Anderson, Principal
Greg Luna, Athletic Director
