Why is Mendota High School's mascot the Trojans?

Does anyone know why we became the Trojans in the first place? I'm looking for an article on this to put in our city's museum to celebrate MHS' 100th year. Can anyone help? Thanks!

I don't know why, but whoever picked it had no knowledge of history. The Trojans are famous for just one thing--being fooled by the Greeks with that big horse--basically, for losing a ten-year war because they got drunk and stupid. Bad choice for a name.
