The Phoenix Mascot

As the Wilson College mascot, the Phoenix embodies strength, spirit and life. Mythologically, the phoenix is a legendary beast said to live a life of solitude. At the end of its life, it is ignited by the sun and fans the flames with its own wings. From the ashes emerges a phoenix filled with renewed spirit and life.

The Phoenix represents the student-athlete who perseveres through difficulties and finds strength in herself and others. It represents the individual who provides the spark, the support, the motivation for her team; who encourages them to continue seeking their burning desire for athletic excellence.

We seek to idealize the spirit of the Phoenix. It is in defeat that we rise from the ashes, in victory we bask in the flames of strength, and in the journey that we live a life of commitment and dedication. Join us and ignite your fire within.
