The city of Carlsbad is home to more than 117 known caves, some of the biggest in North America. Naturally, the town's high school honors the bragging right with its mascot nicknames Cavemen (boys teams) and Cavegirls (girls teams). The actual mascot, "Rusty", resides in the school's library.
Fort Sumner, NM
The school is within close proximity of plenty of animal life, foxes included. But Fort Sumner went the extra step by naming its girls' teams the Vixens.
Santa Fe, NM
The Spanish mascot name translates to scorpion and reportedly is the only school in the country to label its mascot.
The mascot was founded out of a contest of nominated names voted on by teachers, students and parents. The name has a Biblical foundation and points to Roman soldiers.
The name is derived from the tale of a mythical bird thought by some North American Native Americans to pocess special powers.
