Cutters Need Miracle in Best Mascot Poll
The Cutters have nearly 60,000 votes in the USA Today Best High School Mascot poll, but trail by hundreds of thousands to schools in Connecticut and Maine.
With less than three days remaining in the USA Today Top High School Mascot contest, the Cutters prospects look dim.
Despite receiving nearly twice as many votes this round as they did in Round 1 (55,079 as of 5 a.m. Tuesday), the Cutters are still down nearly 500,000 votes heading into the poll's final days.
The region's top two teams, which account for more than 80 percent of the vote between them, are the Kingswood Oxford Wyverns of West Hartford, Conn., and the Morse Shipbuilders of Bath, Maine.
Cutters faithful already have a lot to be proud of for leading the team to an easy state-round victory, but I think we've got a shot at a comeback -- or at least a more respectable showing than 4 percent of the vote. After all, the Shipbuilders picked up a few hundreds thousand votes in the past two days. We can do the same.
