Carmine’s Significance

Every school has a mascot that is a specific animal which has a symbolic meaning behind it. That animal for Cypress Creek High School is Carmine the Coyote. Carmine the Coyote brings so much spirit to Cypress Creek High School (CCHS) and the students. When it comes to being a mascot, Carmine brings it to a whole new level.  

“The staff back at Veteran Elementary School during fifth grade let us choose the mascot before Cypress Creek Middle High School was built. The staff knew that Cypress Creek Middle High School (CCMHS) was going to be our school,” said senior Lilly Wine. 

The Coyote symbolizes strength, bravery, and courage. Those three words give us the ability to overcome fear, to hunt our prey and to be the best school in Pasco County. Our sports teams take those words to a whole new level because they are the legs of the Coyote. The heart and soul of the student’s determination created the body of the Coyote.  

Our teacher’s determination to see their students succeed in our classes every year and after high school gives the Coyote its tail. Finally, our staff’s determination to keep students healthy and to keep the students from getting in trouble gives us the head of the Coyote. This is the way the school spirit should last for years to come. The entire CCHS campus is the embodiment of the spirit of the Coyote.
