LIMA - The University of Northwestern Ohio is proud to announce the official unveiling and naming of the UNOH Mascot during halftime of the men's basketball game against Cornerstone University on Wednesday, Jan. 16. The Racers' contest against Cornerstone is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m.

The naming of the mascot involved participation from students, faculty and staff at UNOH. Everyone was asked to submit potential names for the mascot in the fall. All the names were collected and the UNOH President's Advisory Council and Student Involvement Committee picked their top-10 choices. Of these choices, students, faculty and staff were asked to vote via the UNOH Facebook page over a few weeks to choose the name of the mascot.

The mascot will be welcomed at midcourt on Jan. 16, at Racer Gymnasium. Following his introduction and announcement of his name, he will be in the lobby to hand out autographed hero cards and take pictures with students, faculty, staff and friends of UNOH.
