Goshen's mascot now officially RedHawks after district dropped Redskins moniker
Minutes before tip-off of the Hacienda Holiday Tournament, announcer Mike Kemper introduced the Goshen High School varsity girls basketball team.
“Now, it’s time for your lady Redsk...” he said, correcting himself mid-word and finishing with “RedHawks.”
The game was the debut of the new RedHawks mascot after the Goshen School Board voted in July to retire the longtime Redskins moniker that had sparked controversy regarding whether the name honored Native Americans or disparaged them.When you've lost Goshen . . .
