Illinois High School fights to keep "Midget" mascot

Posted:

Freeburg Community High School in southern Illinois took on the name the "Midgets" decades ago.

 The basketball team at the time was on the short side and played particularly well in one game. 
The Little People of America petitioned the school board to change the name.  After a heated debate, the board decided to keep the mascot.
