The Fighting Cocker Spaniels are the unique nickname for Tryon
University. We chose a noble animal, that is very handsome,
intelligent, loyal and is a keen hunter of the mighty rabbit. Fierce
fighters with a tenacious, fighting spirit They are a Fighter's
Fighter. A Dog's Dog, A Mascot's Mascot. Go Cockers!!
Our University's fight song is unique because we believe in freedom.
This song can be used for any sport and all a team has to do is change
the words to fit any sport or activity. Pretty slick, uh? So
Volleyball, Cross Country, Football, Basketball, Wrestlers, Chess
Masters, any team can use OUR fight song. Here We Go!!
The University colors are black and blue. We give bruises. We are the
bruisers, our opponents the bruisees. At the University of Tryon we
encourage toughness.. Go Cockers!!
