ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WROC) — The results are in! The Canandaigua City School District has picked its new mascot and symbol!
The winning option of the vote is the Gray Wolves. The other options for the choice of mascot were the Bears and the Cardinals.

The school district launched a survey to search for a new name and symbol back in May and over the course of several months, the survey closed on October 15 with the votes narrowing down winner as the winner.
