The name of the high school's basketball team is the "Dust Mites", as seen in "Peter Griffin: Husband, Father...Brother?". I tried to add this fact but it was deleted. Mateng (talk) 19:50, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

It was unnecessary as the entire school mascot is the Dust Mites. Someone slipped that "probably" past me in the past and it had no business being there. --Buckimion (talk) 19:53, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

I understand. For not being from the states, I didn't know the term "mascot" can also describes nickname of a team. In Germany, a mascot is the character/animal representing the team only. Mateng (talk) 20:18, July 18, 2012 (UTC)

Within the US with very few exceptions, a mascot represents the entire school, including all sports teams and affiliations such as cheerleaders. Some groups may have a sub-mascot but this is usually a private matter for those involved. My sister's high school mascot was the Lancers but the marching band had a sub-mascot of a llama. --Buckimion (talk) 20:59, July 18, 2012 (UTC)
