Help us name the new Y hoops mascot

“What’s your name?” a Y preschooler asked when she saw the new Waynesboro YMCA basketball mascot for the first time at the end of the Y Boys Basketball Camp.

That’s the issue. It doesn’t have a name yet, though you can help.

The Y is holding a contest to name the new mascot. Entries are being accepted through Friday, July 15, when the winner will be announced at the end of the 2011 Y Girls Basketball Camp.

Be creative. Among the early leaders in the name game are Hoopy, Lil’ Hoopster and Swish.
