FORT WORTH – A group of 57 current and former Horned Frog student-athletes received TCU diplomas Saturday during Spring Commencement exercises at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum.
The TCU football team led the way with 17 graduates, including three NFL Draft selections in Jerry Hughes, Daryl Washington and Marshall Newhouse. Three other programs featured five honorees each, including the NCAA Champion rifle squad, which saw a pair of All-Americans graduate in Erin Lorenzen and Simone Riford.
The spring 2010 group was marked by a number of individuals who either have already concluded or are still compiling accomplished careers as TCU student-athletes. Ben Biefnes (swimming and diving) and Carrie van Uhlit (equestrian), TCU’s 2009-10 Male and Female Scholar-Athletes of the Year, were among the group, as were All-Americans Valentine Derrey (women’s golf), Nina Munch-Soegaard (women’s tennis) and Jessica Young (women’s track & field). Zvonko Buljan and TK LaFleur, the 2009 Mountain West Conference men’s and women’s basketball Newcomers of the Year, also received diplomas.
