Rhinelander vs Madison E. & Milwaukee Washington and New Glarus vs Whitewater: Most Unique Mascot Challenge

4 Rhinelander Hodags

With the head of a frog, the grinning face of a giant elephant, think short legs set off by huge claws, the back of a dinosaur, and a long tail with a spear’s end” this mythical creature is a perfect mascot for the town where it was “discovered”

5 Madison East and Milwaukee Washington Purgolders

The name Purgolder is a combination of both schools colors, as both schools wear purple and gold. Both schools also use a feline mascot which makes sense when your mascot name includes a slightly misspelled version of purr.

4 New Glarus Glarner Knights

New Glarus caries an interesting story, the Canton of Glarus in Switzerland offered loans for people to move to America, and they settled in New Glarus WI. Playing off their Swiss Heritage they used the Glarner Knights as their mascot, Glarner being a term for being from Glarus and Knights for obvious reasons.

5 Whitewater Whippets

A Whippet is a decendent of greyhounds and resemble a small version of the racing dog. Whippets compete in a lot of dog sports such as lure coursing, agility, and flyball.

And last the results from yesterdays polls
