Twenty-eight UT Arlington student-athletes will don their cap and gown this weekend as the Mavericks celebrate graduation.

The graduating class celebrates championships, a track-and-field Triple Crown, record-breaking careers and was part of a group that posted a school-record 3.073 grade point average in the fall semester.

"Commencement is a favorite time of the year," UT Arlington Athletics Director Jim Baker said. "It marks the completion of a journey of perseverance and success. Congratulations to our student-athletes and all UT Arlington students on their graduations and for their contributions to our University."

Each of UTA's 14 athletic teams are featured in the ceremonies with representation in all but one department commencement taking place between Thursday night and Saturday.

Men's track-and-field leads the way with seven graduates, while the women's team features five.
