GAINESVILLE, FL (University Of Florida Media Release) - A total of 57 University of Florida student-athletes will be earning their degrees in commencement ceremonies being held Friday through Sunday at the Stephen C. O'Connell Center on the UF campus.

Many members of Gator lacrosse's first signing class will be among the graduates, as 13 from the team receive degrees this weekend. From the Gator track & field program, eight women and seven men will graduate. Six football players and five from the men's swimming & diving program receive degrees this May. A trio of baseball and men's basketball players graduate as well as a pair from volleyball, soccer, women's golf and women's swimming. Men's golf, men's tennis, softball and gymnastics will see one student-athlete apiece graduate this weekend.

Among the Gator graduates are Cameron Martin and Holly King, both who will be recognized among the University of Florida's six Outstanding Graduating Senior Leaders<http://www.ufalumni.ufl.edu/news/default.aspx/Outstanding-Leadership-Awards-Spring-2013> at this weekend's commencement. Martin is a recipient of a 2013 NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship and also received a $5,000 scholarship as a nominee for the 2013 Brad Davis SEC Community Service award.
