Dragons competing in state mascot contest
Who is the best high school mascot in Colorado? The 9Preps Mascot Challenge is putting dozens of schools to the test in an online voting bracket. The Holyoke Dragons are going up against the likes of the Brush Beetdiggers, the Rocky Ford Meloneers and the Rocky Mountain School Oysters.
Since the challenge coincides with the Colorado high school football championships, the mascots were split up into their respective football classifications: 6-man, 8-man, 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A and 5A. Mascots of multiple schools were excluded. After a champion is crowned for each class, an overall state winner will be declared.
The Dragons started off the 1A bracket with a bye, followed by a head-to-head competition with the Buena Vista Demons.
