UPDATE - Round 1 voting has completed. Click here to vote on Round 2!
The time is finally here, Ocean County. Mascot Madness is back!

You may remember this time last year when we rolled out the first ever Ocean County Mascot Madness competition to find the best mascot in all of Ocean County.

Through 4 rounds and over 100,000 votes, the Toms River East Raiders were crowned the inaugural Mascot Madness champions, not only beating the rest of their Ocean County competitors, but also steamrolling right over the Monmouth County winners, the Howell Rebels.

But now we set the counters back to 0 and begin again!

Will the Toms River East Raiders repeat?

Will the Point Pleasant Borough Panthers, last year's runner-up, get their revenge?

Will an unexpected dark horse launch ahead of the rest and take the trophy?

There's only one way to find out, let Mascot Madness 2017 begin!

Round 1 voting ends Sunday, March 12th at midnight.  The Top 8 schools will advance to Round 2, which will also be the start of our head-to-head, bracket-style tournament!
