We have our first results and the Mellen Granite Diggers take down the papermakers. The Granite Diggers will move on to face the winner between Whitehall’s The Norse and the Kaukauna Galloping Ghosts.
On to today’s matchup
1 Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah Resorters
Elkhart Lake near Sheboygan is home to many resorts and as the cities slogan says it is “A Legendary Wisconsin Getaway” so a mascot of a Resorter is a clear call to their industry. The elk as the actual visual embodiment of the mascot is also a nice touch.
16 Monroe Cheesemakers
A mascot you would think to see more in a state like Wisconsin, Monroe stands alone as the Cheesemakers, and it makes sense, with a Cheese Days festival and having one of the few plants in the US that still makes Limburger. With many other factories and stores in and around Monroe, it is a center of cheese production in Wisconsin.
