WSU Logo

Winona State Athletics has introduced a new word mark logo to represent the 15 programs within the department.  This logo will serve as an alternate logo when a horizontal graphic is needed or when teams would like the name of the institution to be prevalent on their apparel.  The Warrior Head and Warrior Head Badge Logo will continue to serve as the primary and secondary logos for Winona State Athletics.  The framework for the design was the graphic on the front of the NCAA Championship Basketball jerseys the Warriors wore during their historic run to two National Championships in 2006 and 2008.  The new logo features the word “Winona” in larger text than the word “State”, just as it was on those jerseys.
