Colonels prevail in nickname poll

BRATTLEBORO — In a photo finish, the Brattleboro Colonels got 37 percent of the votes to win my Twitter poll that asked which of four high schools in southern Vermont has the best nickname.

The Bellows Falls Terriers were a close second at 33 percent, the Leland & Gray Rebels followed with 26 percent, and the Twin Valley Wildcats were next at 4 percent.

My latest poll asks which rivalry game you look forward to the most, with the choices being Duke-UNC men's basketball, Ohio State-Michigan football, Yankees-Red Sox, and Canadiens-Bruins. To vote, simply visit my @ShaneCovey profile on Twitter.
