UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

And his name is… Spiro

“Drum roll please,” the PA announcer said at Sunday’s Go Blue Preview. The Spartan mascot would be hearing his name at the Coliseum for the time. “Let’s welcome to the court …. Spiro.”

Spiro is the Greek word for “spirit.”

Four names made the final cut. The winning name for the UNCG mascot was submitted first by Regan Treichler, who won the prize pack.

This Sunday, Oct 23, is the men’s basketball Blue/Gold scrimmage in Fleming Gym. It begins at 4 p.m., following the women’s soccer game against Appalachian State. Admission is free for everyone – and Spiro will of course be on hand to cheer on the players.
