Evolution of Thomson’s athletic identity

An alert reader took this photo of an interesting new plaque on our school’s wall. The proud traditions of Thomson Athletics are commemorated by this plaque that notes the original identity as Thomson Redmen (1959-2004) and subsequent re-birth as the Thomson Titans (2005-future). Click on the photo for a close-up view.

The Football Team was called and known – not as the Redmen but as the “Pioneers” in the time period 1959 to 1962 (at least) !

I remember the Varsity Men’s Basketball team of 1967-1969 as the Redmen. We also had Bev Sturges as coach in what was a “character building time”. We had 6 or 7 players at the games and got to the other schools in the coaches station wagon. Needless to say, there were few cheerleaders who ever came to cheer us on.
Is there a varsity men’s basketball any more? I don’t think I saw it on the list of sports.
