Newport Harbor High two-sport star Cody Caldwell has been dismissed from the boys’ basketball team and his status with the boys’ volleyball team remains in doubt, Sailors’ basketball coach Larry Hirst said Friday.
Hirst said Caldwell, who last played in a Jan. 29 Sunset League home win over Fountain Valley, was dismissed for violating team rules. Hirst said he could not be more specific, citing restrictions in the education code about revealing such matters.
It is unclear when Caldwell’s status for the upcoming volleyball season will be determined.
Caldwell, a 6-foot-6 junior, was the Sailors’ leading scorer and rebounder. He had 12 points, 11 rebounds and four blocked shots against Fountain Valley.
