(Cedar City, UT) -- A southern Utah school is holding onto its current name and mascot. The Iron County Board of Education voted this week to keep Cedar City High School's name as the Reds, which was changed from its previous moniker of Redmen. The school district says four of the seven board members voted to keep Reds as the name.

The board's vote follows efforts to leave the decision up to voters during this year's election.
