BISMARCK, N.D. - The University of Mary has a new logo and mascot. The Marauders replaced the athletic brand they’ve been using since 1990.

Monsignor Sea and Athletic Director Dale Lennon, along with a number of UMary athletes and staff were on hand to show the public what Sean Thorenson designed.

"Our athletic department's vision is to have competitive athletes, supportive teammates, high achieving scholars and virtuous servant leaders. Therefore, we want a logo that symbolizes these competitive qualities and that encourages our teams,” said Lennon. “This new logo truly symbolizes a new era in Marauders athletics.”

“We have talked on and off about renewing the Marauders logo for some time, but this is the right time for the change," Shea said.

The Marauders also showed off their new mascot for the first time. Maximus is his name, but they’re going to shorten it to Max most of the time.
