The Friday night game against the Fort Lewis Skyhawks will include a ceremony and tailgate party honoring the Gallogly Events Center for achieving LEED gold certification.

The tailgate party begins at 5 pm with the women's game to follow at 6, and the men's game at 8.

The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the U.S. Green Building Council's rating system for designing and constructing energy efficient and high-performing green buildings.  UCCS officials received official notice Sept. 15 that the event center received the coveted status. Gallogly is now the third UCCS building to be LEED gold certified. The Campus Recreation Center and Science & Engineering previously earned the designation.
