This round is now closed, click here to vote in the finals!

It's an annual tradition, and it's back for another year as we try once again to find out which Ocean County high school has the best mascot.

Mascot Madness 2018 is here!

You know how this goes by now, but here's a refresher:

  • For the first round, we'll take all 18 Ocean County high schools. Voting goes for a week and you can vote once a day.
  • After a week, we'll go straight by votes and cut the field down to the top 8.
  • After that, we roll bracket-style with head-to-head seeded matchups until we find the winning high school for the best mascot in Ocean County!

Last year, it was the Toms River South Indians who steamrolled over the competition and took the crown.

Who will it be this year? Will the Indians repeat? Will the Toms River East Raiders regain the title that they took home in 2016? Or will another Ocean County high school prove that their mascot is the best around?

It's all up to you now! Let the voting begin!
