The Dover Dragons held off a tough challenge from the New Fairfield Rebels to capture the title of the regions most popular mascot.

In what became an epic mascot battle all week, the Dover Dragons got a late surge to overtake the second place New Fairfield Rebels during the March Mascot Madness.

The voting went back and forth for days with no school holding more then a double digit lead. That all changed on Friday, as the Dover Dragons surged ahead, never looking back. Dover called on all their resources, including students, alumni, and residents to become the first ever Kicks 105.5 March Mascot Madness champion.

Rounding out the final 4, The Danbury Hatters finished third, followed by the Brewster Bears.
