History of the CRLS Mascot

January 31, 2019

Until 1989, the CRLS mascot was a side profile of an angry Native-American man, which stood for their sports team name, “The Warriors.” Many Native-Americans and others in the school felt as if the mascot and the name portrayed indigenous people negatively, which created a big conversation at the time. Former student Brook Dooley wrote in a 1989 edition of the Register Forum “the picture of the Warrior wasn’t introduced until 1972.” The Warrior mascot was used for 17 years before it was addressed as a problematic image and name.

Girls Volleyball Remains Positive After Tough Season

November 29, 2018

After an exciting season last year, during which the girls volleyball team made it to the semi-finals of the state tournament, the team was unable to carry the momentum from last year into this season. After losing only four seniors last year, there was optimism that the team could make another run for the state title. However, things did not go as planned. The team started off strong, winning their first two games, but ultimately won only four of their next eleven games, finishing 6-13 at the end of the season. Angelica Cianella, a sophomore on the team, says that the season was rough; “We weren’t playing to our full potential, and we struggled to find ways to work together when we went out on the court.”
