Raptors will be red, not blue


When the Park and Woodbury high school football teams meet East Ridge High School's team during the football season in the fall of 2009, they will be seeing red.

The Wolfpack and Royals will meet the East Ridge Raptors (birds of prey) in future athletic events. The mascot was approved for East Ridge by the District 833 School Board at its regular meeting, March 20.

But the board did not like the proposed predominant school color of navy blue with red and white accents.
