CIF investigates after tacos were thrown to Orange Glen’s basketball team
Coronado-CIF officials have launched an investigation into an incident that occurred after a championship basketball game between Coronado High School and Orange Glen High School on Saturday night, when people threw at the Orange Glen basketball team Tortillas.
The video of the incident showed that after the Coronado High School won the game, the tortillas were thrown on the court and the players of Orange Glen. Orange Glen mainly serves Latino students.
The California Intercollegiate Association said in a statement that it prohibits “discrimination or any disrespect or disparagement of member schools, student athletes, or school communities.”
CIF said it will cooperate with the management of the two schools to investigate the incident.
Coronado police responded to the incident to help clear people out of the stadium after the game. “We are very disturbed by the behavior of some people who participated in the basketball game last night. Their behavior is completely unacceptable,” the department said in a statement.
The police department promised to investigate the incident and said they were able to identify the adult male who brought the tortilla into the game.
California State Assemblyman Lorena Gonzalez also expressed her views on the matter. She said: “Coronado High School should be sanctioned by CIF or deprived of their championship. Is generally condemned.”
