GENESEO – It’s official, SUNY Geneseo’s mascot, Victor E. Knight, is the favorite in SUNY.
According to blog.suny.edu, Victor edged out SUNY Stony Brook’s Wolfie Seawolf in the final hours of SUNY’s Mascot Madness contest by an incredibly narrow 3% margin.
“The poll shows that the voting went 15,798 to 14,746, leading to an unbelievably tense 3% margin of victory for Victor,” posted blog.suny.edu. “Nearly 100,000 unique votes were cast throughout the tournament.”
Blog.suny.edu thanked mascot fans across New York State for participating.
“We saw students, alumni, and communities come together in great showings of pride for our SUNY campuses across New York and the nation,” posted blog.suny.edu. “And at the end of the day, that’s exactly what these mascots signed up for when they took the job… To shout and share the greatness of public higher education in New York. Thank you Mascots, for doing what you do. Go SUNY!”
