EUGENE, Ore -- The 4-J school district seeks feedback on South Eugene High School's athletic team name, The Axemen.

The axe is a longstanding part of South Eugene High School's history and tradition. The Axemen has been in use for some teams since the 1930s, a time when interscholastic sports teams were all male. Over the years, there has been a growing debate over the team name. Some think The Axemen is discriminatory towards girls and other students.
