Soccer players will skip playoffs

Six players on the Camarillo girls soccer team said they will not play in the CIF Southern Section playoffs in protest of the way their coach has treated them, according to a story in the Ventura County Star.

Camarillo coach Chris Lawler denies the allegations by the players and parents of verbal abuse and has the support of the school administration to continue coaching the team.

The Camarillo girls soccer team has enough players for its first-round game against Colton on Friday in the Division 5 playoffs, according to the Ventura County Star.
