High Point Name-The-Team Contest Yields Three Finalists

A name-the-team contest run by the new independent Atlantic League team debuting in High Point, North Carolina in 2019 has narrowed the field from nine nominated names to three.

The three finalists: Dragon Claws, Rockers and Splinters.

The new team has been running a contest with elimination rounds. The Chairmen, Pioneers, RockerSox and Tri-Stars were eliminated in the second round after the Hush Puppies, Iron Dragons, and Iron Eagles were eliminated from future consideration in the first round.

Fans can vote on the three finalists at final team name and primary logo will be announced as part of the next BB&T Point Progress Party on Thursday, July 12 at 6 p.m.

“The High Point Dragon Claws, the High Point Rockers or the High Point Splinters are all winners,” said Ken Lehner, High Point President. “We will be thrilled with any of these names as they are all deserving in their own way. Ultimately it is up to the fans to decide and thus far these three names have been nip and tuck since the voting started so it is too close to call.”

The new team will begin play in 2019 at BB&T Point.

The High Point team was officially approved by Atlantic League members in March. The Atlantic League is playing with seven teams and a travel team in 2018; barring any additional changes, the new High Point team will replace the Road Warriors in 2019. The new High Point club will be the league’s first in the state of North Carolina.
