Woodbridge High students came to the defense Tuesday of the school's Warrior mascot, which some Native Americans say is offensive to them. Five students told trustees of Irvine Unified School District that the school has taught them to respect the image of the warrior and to hold it in high esteem. "I am a Warrior. I am a person who has strength, honor and pride in my community," student Stephanie Bennett said.

Only later that day in 1993 did Gale find out that a student had fired a gun into the floor.
