Lancaster to vote on 7 new mascot choices; poll and gallery

LANCASTER, N.Y. (WIVB) — After a protracted battle which led to the discarding of the Lancaster Redskin mascot, the school is ready to vote on seven new choices.

Students submitted several designs for consideration and the field was narrowed to seven candidates for the school’s new mascot. Students will choose from Alphas, Dragons, Jaguars, Knights, Legends, Pride and Red Hawks.

Students will use Erie County Board of Elections ballot machines to vote on Wednesday, May 27. In the case of a close result, run-off elections will be held on Thursday, May 28.

Lancaster officials say more than 120 students in grades eight through 12 submitted entries for consideration.
