The heated debate in a Connecticut town over whether to bring back the high school's Native American-themed mascot has left the school without an official athletic nickname days before the football team plays in a state championship game. The 9-member Killingly Board of Education on Wednesday voted to rescind Killingly High School's new Red Hawks mascot, but stopped short of reinstating the former Redmen name. The vote came at the end of more than two hours of sometimes contentious public comments. Killingly plays Weston in the in Class M state title football game on Saturday.
