Notes from the 1945 Season

This is the gospel truth concerning the Bomber mascot change from Beavers to Bombers.

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.

This is the first year that Richland played their home games at the Bomber Bowl.
