Just in time for its annual rivalry football game with Asheville School, there is a new logo for all of Christ School’s athletic teams, the school announced Monday:
Christ School Unveils New Athletic Logo
Christ School presents a vibrant, new logo to represent its athletic teams. Although Christ School teams have proudly borne the name “Greenies” since the early 1900s, until now the name has not been symbolically represented. The new logo, which characterizes the strength and spirit of Christ School’s outstanding athletic program, will begin appearing on all athletic uniforms in late October.
Christ School was dubbed the Greenies in 1917 after the baseball team won the Western North Carolina baseball championship, earning new uniforms to replace the mismatched hand-me-down uniforms the teams had been wearing up to that point. Player and team manager J. Mitchel Taylor ordered every uniform in green, and thus began the term The Greenies, which has endured ever since.
Headmaster Paul Krieger feels that the new logo, in green, gold, and grey, with its suggestion of movement and abstract formations of a C, S, and G, captures the progress and vitality of our community. “The boys have been eager for a symbol representing their efforts; this logo will add some life and school spirit to our community,” says Krieger.
