South Burlington students select new mascot

Posted: Updated:

Students at South Burlington High School have picked their new mascot.

Based on student polls, a committee will recommend "Wolves" to the South Burlington School Board.

The new nickname has been selected to replace the controversial "Rebels" nickname.

A vote was held between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Thursday after students whittled down a long list of names to three -- Huskies, Pride and Wolves.

Principal Patrick Burke tweeted out the big news Thursday night.
