Judges pick finalists for "Best Team Name" contest

SPOKANE, Wash. - The list of team names for the upcoming Bloomsday Run once again is a creative one, with names such as "Running Our Buttresses Off" to "Bladerunners".

A panel made up of Bloomsday organizers and sponsor representatives selected 21 finalists for the "Best Team Name" award. 

"Clearly, Corporate Cup entrants are putting a of thought into their team names," said Corporate Cup Char Carol Hunter in a recent news release.

She said it's getting more difficult every year for teams to select names that combine racing with the type of work their company does.

Last year's winner was Columbia Paint's "Shakin' Our Cans".  Second place went to Michael R. Bell and Co.'s "Decreasing Our Bottom Line", with Gonzaga's English Departments "Suppersonnets" team taking third place.
