About Us

Our Program


Two squads.  One team.  We are the brown & gold; the team behind the team.  We are WYO Cheer!  Made up of a large coed squad, small coed squad and our beloved Pistol Pete mascot - we are the University of Wyoming Spirit Program!  With over 30 diverse, skilled and passionate members, we cheer on our Wyoming football, basketball, wrestling & volleyball teams with pride and actively engage our University, community and state! We are proud to be a part of the University of Wyoming Athletics Department and truly love our Wyoming fans!
