Vote Blaze in Mascot Madness Challenge

 Vote Blaze in Mascot Madness Challenge

03/05/2013 

The bracket’s been built and SUNY Cortland has taken the top overall seed.

Now, it’s time to make Blaze, the College’s red dragon mascot, the winner of SUNY’s first-ever Mascot Madness challenge.

The competition, which relies on online voting, began March 4 and runs for five weeks. SUNY institutions are competing in a standard single-elimination format in one-week rounds.

Voters can weigh in once per match-up in each round on SUNY’s blog. As the top overall seed, SUNY Cortland has a bye for the first round. Seeding was determined based on the number of varsity teams a campus fields, with enrollment numbers used to break any ties.

Blaze will meet either Perseus, the SUNY Purchase Panther, or Hugo, the SUNY New Paltz Hawk, in second round action, which kicks off Tuesday, March 12.
