LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - The expansion to the Rochelle Athletics Center on the University of Wyoming campus has been officially named the Mick and Susie McMurry High Altitude Performance Center.

The Laramie Boomerang reports (https://bit.ly/24c5xof ) that the UW Board of Trustees gave its unanimous approval to the name on Wednesday.

UW Foundation President Ben Blalock says the McMurrys donated $6 million to the project, amounting to half of the private funds needed for completion of the building on the north side of War Memorial Stadium.

The expansion is meant to allow student athletes superior training opportunities. The Rochelle Athletic Center will keep its name.
