Viterbo Mascot Heads to Nationals

A familiar face around Viterbo University is getting national attention. Vic the V-Hawk, the school's mascot, is headed to the final of the first ever 'mascot challenge' from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics.

Vic has already topped seven other mascots in Viterbo’s own conference to make it to the national level. The winners of each round are picked through online voting. Viterbo’s athletics department says it's been fun to see Vic rise to the top.

“I think it's big for us because we're not huge and so when people see our name it's exciting just to get Viterbo out there like for recruiting purposes, help bring in students and just kind of show people where we are.”

Voting in the finals will be through Facebook and Twitter and will start in early March.
