Laramie, Wyo. - The primary purpose of The University of Wyoming Spirit Program is to support the UW Athletic Department and all Cowboy and Cowgirl Athletic Teams. Members of the Spirit Program can be seen at all home football games, men's and women's basketball games, volleyball games, wrestling meets, and various other athletic contests. In addition to this support, members of the UW Spirit Program serve as public relations ambassadors for the University of Wyoming and are often seen as the face of UW Athletics. As public relations ambassadors, the Cheerleaders and Pistol Pete make numerous appearances year round at University activities and community events.
The UW Spirit Program consists of 2 Cheer Teams (an All Girl Team and a Co Ed Team) and the UW Mascot, Pistol Pete. (As of April 1, 2012, there will no longer be a Pom Team.) The Cheerleaders and Pistol Pete work hard to get the crowd involved, lead cheers, and entertain fans at UW athletic events. It is our belief that by leading our fans in a positive manner, we can help our teams win.
