Shooter nixed

Medicine Hat News - - LIFESTYLES -

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. Mass shoot­ings across the U.S. have prompted Marist Col­lege in New York to drop Shooter as the nick­name for its sports mas­cot.

The Poughkeepsie Jour­nal re­ports that Marist Col­lege has de­cided on Frankie as the new name for the cos­tumed mas­cot for its Red Foxes men’s and women’s bas­ket­ball teams after last month’s mass shoot­ing at a coun­try mu­sic con­cert in Las Ve­gas.

Frankie, a nod to Pres­i­dent Franklin D. Roo­sevelt, who was born in nearby Hyde Park.
