GRAND FORKS, N.D. - The University of North Dakota's baseball seniors were invited to the office of UND President Dr. Robert Kelley earlier this month in an exclusive graduation ceremoy.

Senior candidates for degrees included Kevin Auth (Cambridge, Minn.), Daniel Ross (Brooklyn Park, Minn.), Zac Salfer (Sleepy Eye, Minn.) and Kyle Bolander (Hermantown, Minn.). However, they were unable to attend UND's Spring 2012 Commencement on May 12 because the Fighting Sioux were hosting a doubleheader against Houston Baptist to close out its home schedule.

Each senior student-athlete received his diploma from President Kelley, with athletics director Brian Faison and head baseball coach Jeff Dodson also in attendance.
