First, a few names that should be out: Owls, Falcons, Knights, Lions, Eagles, Cavaliers, Mavericks and Panthers. Let's not confuse the college's mascot with that of any of the local high schools. Besides, several of those names are already taken by a few of the 16 other Maryland community colleges in the MD JUCO Athletic Association; the Baltimore Panthers, Dundalk Lions, Essex Knights and Cecil Eagles, while two — Harford and Prince George's — lay claim to the Owls. Hawks, already used by three other community colleges in Maryland, should also be out. Cougars, the runner-up to Bulldogs in the 1990s, is the mascot of neighboring Frederick Community College, so that should probably be out too.
