The Mocs athletics program was well represented at the 239th Commencement ceremonies at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga today.  A total of 32 members of the UTC Athletics program earned their degrees today, and another 11 were recognized for their planned degree completion in the summer semesters. 

 Two of the top honorees at today's procession were women's soccer's Serena Allen and Cross Country/Track & Field's Colton Popp.  They both graduated Magna Cum Laude in Biology.  Former women's basketball player Kori Penland was also a Magna Cum Laude grad, earning her degree in Education. 

Gordon Rudell (men's tennis), Shaina Singh (women's tennis) and Jenni Martin (softball) all earned Cum Laude honors.  Ruddell and Singh were Biology majors while Martin finished her degree in Health & Human Performance. 

"This is the end of a long journey that included a lot of hard work and a commitment to comprehensive excellence on the part of our student-athletes," stated Director of Athletics Rick Hart.  "However, it is just the beginning of the next chapter of their lives.  Our coaches and staff have done an excellent job guiding, encouraging and supporting them along the way and I know they will be excellent representatives of our program and our University."

Many of the student-athletes and their families gathered for the traditional reception in the Hall of Fame room prior to the Commencement at McKenzie Arena today.  Be sure to check out the included photo gallery and check back later for video from today's graduation ceremonies.
