New MHS Mascot Suggestion:

Montrose High School
Mascot Change Sub-Committee
Re: New Mascot Suggestion
As I am currently raising an Indonesian Ridgeback-mix Puppy, So, in my research of the breed, I found this:
The University of Ontario Institute of Technology is, to our knowledge, the only school with a Rhodesian Ridgeback as its mascot.
Athletes are called “Ridgebacks” because the Rhodesian Ridgeback is a well muscled hunting dog that’s strong, competitive by nature, lightning quick and deftly alert. Bottom line, the breed has qualities any athletic competitor would want. Go team!
Hence, I would like the Committee to consider Ridgebacks for the new MHS team name and mascot.

Hey everyone! The fall sports season is on the back nine (no pun intended), so before it comes to a close, it would be great to see some photos from road or home games that you've been able to capture.
It could be from any fall sport (cross country, boys golf, football, volleyball or softball). Just send them in through a comment below and we'll consider publishing it in an upcoming sports section in the paper.
You can see the one I added below as an example. I captured a photo of the MHS boys soccer team and in the photo is Adriel Huizar Martinez as he tried to move the ball downfield.
