Cast your vote - help us choose a new mascot name!

The Laker's logo is making a big splash and we need your help to name our new mascot!

Lakeland's marketing and communications department presented dozens of potential names to our student athletes and coaches, who helped narrow down the options to these two finalists:

A breaker is a wave breaking into foam against the shore. Breaker the mascot is forceful and takes challenges head-on. Watch for Breaker the Laker to surge past the competition.

The name Crash evokes the images and sounds of high waves crashing on the shores of Lake Erie. Crash the mascot is powerful and ready to roll. Watch for Crash to smash the competition.

We now invite you to help us finalize the name of our new mascot! Let us know your favorite by clicking the link below. Act fast, polling closes at noon, Nov. 27, 2019.
