RENO, Nev. - Fifty Wolf Pack student-athletes representing 13 teams have applied for graduation at the University of Nevada this winter. Ceremonies for the 2011 Winter Commencement are set for Saturday, Dec. 10 at Lawlor Events Center.

The Wolf Pack football team is represented by 20 student-athletes, while Nevada's women's track and field team has seven graduates. Five women's soccer student-athletes are graduating, while the volleyball team features four and the skiing team has three. The Wolf Pack baseball, men's golf and women's swimming and diving squads are each represented by two graduates, while Nevada's women's golf, rifle, men's tennis, softball and women's basketball teams have one graduate each. In addition to the 50 student-athletes, three members of the Nevada cheer and spirit program will also be earning their degrees this winter.

Every year since 2006, graduating Nevada student-athletes are given a special silver and blue cord to wear at commencement in recognition of their efforts as student-athletes. Wolf Pack student-athletes are the only university students allowed to wear silver and blue cords.

Including this winter's 50 graduates, Nevada has seen 416 of its student-athletes graduate in the past seven years. The Wolf Pack's Graduation Success Rate is at its all-time high of 78 percent and has improved in each of the last seven years.

"Congratulations to all of our student-athletes who are graduating this winter," said Nevada Director of Athletics Cary Groth. "We wish them all the best as they leave the University of Nevada and head out into the world with their college degrees."
