    NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Saturday marked the culmination of four years of determination and hard work as 39 student-athletes walked across the stage to receive their diplomas. Eight different teams had at least one athlete graduate during Saturday's fall commencement at the William R. Johnson Coliseum.

    "This is a special time every semester, to watch these kids grow from freshmen into young adults," said Director of Athletics Robert Hill. "Watching them receive their diploma for all their years of hard work and dedication is more special to our department, and our coaches, than any win on the field. I'm very proud of all our graduates."

    The Lumberjack football team led the way with 17 graduates, while baseball and men's track and field each had five. The women's track and field team had four athletes graduate and soccer and volleyball each had four. The Ladyjack golf, soccer and softball teams each had one graduate.
