Carbon High School will have to wait a few more days to see if the Dino is chosen as the best high school mascot in the western U.S.
USA Today High School Sports said the contest became so popular with people logging onto the site to vote, that many visitors were unable to vote or dealt with a slow response while on the voting page. Because of that, a statement on the website said the contest will resume on Monday, March 18 at 1 p.m. Mountain Time and will continue through Wednesday, March 20 at 1 p.m. The winners will advance to the national voting portion where the best mascot would be crowned.
The Carbon High Dino currently leads the voting in Region 6 with 1,500,016 votes (40.023 percent) with the Oregon Episcopal Aardvarks trailing with 1,498,853 (39.992 percent).
