While we won’t be witnessing another international Olympics until 2020, there will be one of a local variety quite sooner right here in Germantown. On September 15th, while the Houston Mustangs battle the Bartlett Panthers at the varsity football game, our elementary school mascots will go mano-a-mano in a battle of their own: the GMSD Mascot Battle Royale.
Refereed by HHS’s Maverick the Mustang-- the Farmington Falcon, Dogwood Dolphin, and Riverdale Raider will compete in a variety of challenges, from a football toss to a dance-off, during the game’s time outs to determine who will take home the trophy for 2017 Semester.
But the fun isn’t only for Friday’s game. Mascots will be making surprise appearances at their schools in the weeks preceding to help get students psyched for the event, but be careful! Other mascots may have a trick or two up their sleeve and pop up on the turf of the competition. On Friday, September 15th, a spirit squad from the high school will also be making an appearance to promote the fun!
The Farmington Falcon is off to an early start--kidnapping and dressing up some raiders in Farmington's colors.
Students and parents can help their favorite mascot in the competition by purchasing game tickets online and selecting a mascot--granting that mascot special advantages in the competition come game day.
Included with the admission of the game, elementary school students are also invited to an exclusive pre-game warm up session with their mascots led by Memphis' most beloved mascot--Rocky the Redbird. So, bring your cameras and sport your school colors as we pump up these mascots for the big event. The Warm-Up Event will begin at 6:30 sharp on the field!
