The search is on.
School officials in Clarkstown are looking for a nickname to be used by the district’s nine combined teams. Mall Rats isn’t likely to make the list. According to Chris Serra, who is the director of athletics, physical education, and aquatics for CCSD, there will be community input. When a suitable nickname is found, the choice will be submitted to the school board for approval.
There is no formal timetable.
Based on the informal poll I posted last week, an overwhelming majority wanted to stick with Mall Rats, including a number of Clarkstown players who made their opinion known on Twitter.
