High Schools Cancel Games, Citing 'Redskins' Mascot
Two high schools in the Buffalo, N.Y., area have canceled upcoming lacrosse games because their opponents use the "Redskins" nickname.
Akron High School canceled its March 31 varsity lacrosse game against Lancaster High School, citing concerns about Lancaster's mascot, according to the Associated Press. Lake Shore High School quickly followed suit by canceling both boys' and girls' lacrosse games against Lancaster. Both Akron and Lake Share have a high proportion of American Indian students.
