  • 1945 Notes & Highlights
  • Richland's mascot changed from the Beavers to the Bombers after the Prosser game. Richland adopted the Bomber mascot when playing Hermiston.
  • Richland's victory over Hermiston was the first football game played at the Bomber Bowl. Coach Littau left after the completion of the season. Coach Fred Littau graduated from Yankton College in 1942.
  • Col-Hi changed their mascot from Beavers to Bombers this year because of the tremendous pride exhibited by partisan "frontier minded" Richlanders with their part in contributing to the making of the Atomic Bomb at the Hanford Engineering Works; thus hastening the end of the war against Japan. The new mascot name was an instant hit with the student body and parents; expressing their pride and euphoria of the time.
