SWOSU Holding Tryouts for Mascot

Southwestern Oklahoma State University will hold tryouts for mascot on Monday, September 18, on the Weatherford campus.

Auditions will be held at 7 p.m. in the Pioneer Cellular Event Center.

Applications are available in the SWOSU Athletic Office in the Pioneer Cellular Event Center. Applications must be returned to the office by 4 p.m. on Friday, September 15.

SWOSU Cheer Coach McKenzie Pshigoda said attendance at the tryouts is mandatory to be considered for the scholarship position. Candidates will be judged on natural talent as well as potential to become a collegiate mascot in the Bulldog costume.

SWOSU students must be enrolled full-time (12 hours) to be eligible to tryout. Pshigoda said mascot candidates will be evaluated on creativity, school spirit and enthusiasm by performing various expressions, scenarios and freestyle dance. No skit or props are needed.

Additional information is available by contacting Pshigoda at 580.331.7827, Pam Nichols at 580.774.3068 or emailing swosucheer@gmail.com.
