Blooming Prairie, MN
When Blooming Prairie would travel to nearby Austin in the early 1900s, the Austin paper would refer to the squad as "the boys from blossom town." That's how "Blossom" came to be. Then, after several failed attempts to change the name, a student sketched a ferocious face on the Blossom logo about 35 years ago and called it the Awesome Blossom.
Jordan gets its nickname because the town was the railroad hub of Scott County back when trains were prevalent. Of course, Hubmen doesn't really work for girls' sports, and Hubwomen just sounds silly. So the female teams at Jordan go by the Jaguars. If that's not confusing enough, Jordan teams up with a neighboring school to field a wrestling school, and the combined team is the Panthers.
Roosevelt isn't exactly a unique school name. But Minnesota's Roosevelt embraces the school's namesake - President Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt - like none other with its Teddies mascot. The logo is a cartoonish teddy bear wearing a varsity sweater with an "R" for Roosevelt.
Sauk Centre, MN
Following a road game at Alexandria in 1926, a reporter referred to Sauk Centre as the Mainstreeters. To this day, Sauk Centre isn't sure if the reporter was being sarcastic, or not. But the name stuck. And why not? Sauk Centre is hometown to old-school writer Sinclair Lewis, who penned the classic novel "Main Street."
Winona isn't home to a rare breed of hawks. Rather Winhawks is a nice play on words that transforms the stereotypical "Hawks" mascot into a winning proposition. Blackhawks. Seahawks. Plain-old Hawks. They have nothing on the Winhawks. Winona's mascot, Herky, is a cartoon bird with bulky arms.
