OXFORD, Miss. – For 62 Ole Miss student-athletes, Saturday will be a special day and the beginning of the next chapter in their lives, as they graduate from the University of Mississippi.

A special ceremony for those student-athletes who will be competing during Saturday’s commencement will be held May 13 at 4 p.m. at the FedEx Academic Success Center.   

Football leads the way with 25 players graduating, including 13 players returning for the 2013 campaign.  Among those are returning starters Pierce Burton, Emmanuel McCray, Charles Sawyer and Evan Swindall and two-time All-SEC punter Tyler Campbell.

Track and field, currently competing at the SEC Championships in Columbia, Mo., will have 12 graduates.  Among them are Olympian and SEC Champion Isiah Young, Kathie Breathitt, who placed fifth at the SEC Championships last year in the 3,000 meter steeplechase, and Neal Tisher, who was a finalist for the SEC Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award.

Murphy Holloway and Nick Williams, who helped lead the men’s basketball team to the SEC Tournament Championship and the NCAA Tournament, will receive their degrees.       
Men’s tennis All-American Jonas Lutjen and SEC Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete of the Year finalist Adrian Forberg Skogeng will graduate this weekend while also trying to help the No. 6 seeded Rebels advance to the NCAA Sweet Sixteen.  The Rebels face Lehigh in the first round Friday at 3 p.m.

Baseball and volleyball will each have four graduates.   Among the baseball players earning their degree is Ole Miss’ all-time saves leader Brett Huber.  

Right side hitter Allegra Wells and Whitney Craven finished in the top 10 in several categories for the Rebels on the court, while setter Amanda Philpot finished second in school history in assists.  

Softball boasts three graduates including Brittany Broome, the Ole Miss career record-holder and single-season stolen bases leader.  Soccer also has three players graduating led by two-time All-SEC honoree Alex Hildal.

Ole Miss Hall of Fame inductee Maggie McFerrin is joined by Courtney Marbra as members of the women’s basketball team graduating.

Rifle, men’s golf, women’s golf and women’s tennis each have one member of their respective teams graduating.

The University of Mississippi's 160th commencement ceremonies begin Saturday at 9 a.m. in The Grove with Myrlie Evers-Williams delivering the address. The individual schools’ graduation exercises will follow in various locations across campus.
