Washburn Ichabod mascot

The mascot of Washburn, a small school in Topeka, Kan., is the Ichabods. According to the school’s website, the name is not related to Ichabod Crane from “Sleepy Hollow” or Mr. Peanut of Planter’s Peanuts. Instead, the name comes from Ichabod Washburn, an early benefactor of the school.

10. Poca High School- Poca, West Virginia “The Poca dancers” : False!

It’d be a crime for Poca’s teams to be called anything BUT the Dots. If there’s a better marriage of town name and school mascot in America, we’ve yet to come across it.
