UIS Keeps Prairie Stars Name

Teams at the University of Illinois Springfield will continue to be known as the Prairie Stars.


After months of debate over whether the school should adopt a new team name and mascot, a consultant found there was no consensus.


So school officials have decided to stick with the name that’s been around since the 1970s, when UIS was known as Sangamon State University.


Chancellor Susan Koch says the name is part of the school’s tradition and means a lot to students and alumni.
