A sign that spring is here — the Drake Relays are less than one month away.
Tuesday evening saw the field set for one of the biggest events of the track meet… the Beautiful Bulldog Contest.
Drake held a lottery drawing to pick 50 beautiful contestants from the more than 80 applicants.
But this was the easy part for the dogs, now the real work begins.
“We go to costume design, thinking of different ideas to catch the attention of the judges,” explains Megan Mohrhauser. “She was in it a couple of years ago but didn’t win so we need to make a stronger effort.”
The most beautiful bulldog will be crowned on April 21st. The relays start on April 23rd.
