From excerpt on back: Twelve lacrosse players and their female manager received their degrees in a special ceremony in Old Cabell Hall. Ten received degrees, while the others will complete their requirements in the fall. The rite came complete with orange and blue balloons, faculty members in full academic regalia and proud, camera-wielding parents. The lacrosse team, the defending national champions, missed the larger ceremony to participate in an NCAA quarterfinal game in Baltimore.
