Dec. 10, 2015

DENTON - The North Texas Athletics Department honored 33 student-athletes who are receiving their diplomas this weekend with a reception on Wednesday afternoon in the club level of Apogee Stadium.

"That fact that you stuck it out, through the toughest times and the best of times, says a lot," said North Texas Athletics Director Rick Villarreal to the group of graduates. "I am proud of everything you have accomplished."

The football team led the way with 15 players receiving their undergraduate degrees. A combined 13 track and field athletes were also well represented.

Three soccer players, one men's golfer and one volleyball player were also honored.

The graduates were given stoles with the words "Student-Athlete" that they can wear during the graduation ceremony.
