The Long Beach Press-Telegram investigates Artesia High School's nationally recognized basketball program. A large number of the players on Artesia's men basketball team live outside of the school's district, or are from foreign countries like the Dominican Republic or Iceland. An investigation by the Press-Telegram revealed the Artesia's head coach, Wayne Merino, had violated numerous California prep sports rules while building his championship teams, including using undue influence to recruit players and recruiting ineligible players . The newspaper discovered that "two of the team's players had submitted foreign student applications with false information on them, that one of the team's stars, a junior at the school, was actually in his 10th semester of high school and that the team's coaches had used undue influence in recruiting the players."
