 Cortland’s Dragon Wins Mascot Madness First Round

03/18/2014 

SUNY Cortland’s Red Dragon blazed to victory today in the first round of the SUNY system’s annual Mascot Madness competition, beating SUNY Maritime and SUNY IT with 48 percent of the vote in a three-way match.

Blaze, Cortland’s fire-breathing mascot, will now take on SUNY Plattsburgh’s big red cardinal, Burghy. Plattsburgh beat Farmingdale State College’s Rambo Ram, taking 53 percent of the vote to advance to the next round.

Mascot Madness, patterned after the bracketed NCAA tournament commonly known as March Madness, is decided by online votes cast by college students, alumni and other supporters.

SUNY Cortland fans can vote for Blaze by going to the College’s Mascot Madness webpage at http://www2.cortland.edu/mascot-madness/

Starting at noon Wednesday, March 19, supporters can vote once every eight hours until 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 23, when this round of competition ends.
