Mountain Lions Celebrate Homecoming with Four Days of Home Events
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The University of Colorado Colorado Springs Homecoming activities will extend to the Mountain Lion athletic events this weekend with special promotional events for UCCS students. The annual volleyball "White Out" and soccer "March" will highlight four consecutive days of Mountain Lion home events this weekend.
The UCCS volleyball team opens the weekend on Thursday night with the annual "White Out" event for fans. Students can arrive at the Gallogly Events Center before the 7 p.m. start with Western New Mexico to pick up free t-shirts courtesy of the Mountain Lion athletic department. Community members, UCCS faculty and staff, and friends of family on the volleyball program are also encouraged to participate by wearing white shirts to the game.
Friday's doubleheader soccer games against Colorado Christian will begin with "The March" for UCCS students from the housing quad. T-shirts for the march to Mountain Lion Stadium will be distributed at 4 p.m., with the march to the stadium to follow shortly afterwards. The live Clyde mascot will be near the entrance to the stadium. The Mountain Lion men are on a four-game winning streak going into Friday's 5 p.m. game and the women are ranked No. 17 in the nation and are 6-1 at home.
Volleyball returns to the Gallogly Events Center late Saturday afternoon for a 5 p.m. match with New Mexico Highlands. The Mountain Lions will look to remain undefeated at home and will go for their eighth straight win against the Cowgirls dating back to the 2006 season.
Another soccer doubleheader closes out the weekend when UCCS hosts Colorado Mesa for early afternoon games on Sunday at Mountain Lion Stadium. The men kick off against the Mavericks at 11:30 a.m., before the women take on the No. 13 Mavericks in what is tentatively scheduled to be a top-20 matchup ahead of the release of new national polls on Tuesday.
The events are part of the overall Homecoming 2012 festivities, coordinated by the Office of Student Activities and the UCCS Alumni and Friends Association. A full list of activities for students, faculty and staff, and alumni and community members can be found at uccs.edu/homecoming.
