A total of 86 Cowboy and Cowgirl student-athletes are scheduled to graduate, with either their undergraduate or graduate degrees.

All 17 of Wyoming's NCAA-sanctioned sports, along with members of UW's Spirit team, Rodeo team and a group of UW Athletics' graduate assistants, will be represented in this spring's group of graduates.

University of Wyoming Associate Athletic Director and Senior Women's Administrator Taylor Stuemky will address the graduates on Friday, as will Director of Academic Services Delaney Mullins. Corin Carruth, a member of the Cowgirl volleyball program along with Kareem Mersal of the cowboy track and field program will speak. Former Cowboy football player Zach Watts will also add remarks during the program.

"The graduation Stole Ceremony has become one of the most special events of the year for our student-athletes and staff," UW Director of Athletics Tom Burman said. "Many years ago, we decided to conduct this ceremony for our young men and women in athletics to honor them for reaching this great accomplishment. It is a great opportunity for us to congratulate them and wish them well in the next phase of their lives."

The tradition of presenting UW student-athlete graduates with graduation stoles at a special reception began with the spring semester of 2014 and has been held every semester since. The graduation stoles are provided to wear along with the graduation stole from each student-athlete's college.

The UW Athletics' graduation stole is white with the familiar Steamboat Bucking Horse and Rider emblem on the right-hand side of the stole and a "W Club" emblem on the left. Each graduating student-athlete will also receive a free "W Club" membership for the coming year. The "W Club" is the official organization for former Cowboy and Cowgirl student-athletes and coaches.

The 2024 spring commencement ceremonies are scheduled for Saturday. Three ceremonies for various colleges will take place in the Arena-Auditorium at 8:30 a.m., 12:15 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Detailed information on the 2024 University of Wyoming commencement ceremonies may be found at: http://www.uwyo.edu/commencement/

University of Wyoming’s Top 50 Football Players

During the summer of 2021, 7220Sports.com counted down the Top 50 football players in University of Wyoming history, presented by Premier Bone & Joint Centers, Worthy of Wyoming.

The rules are simple: What was the player's impact while in Laramie? That means NFL stats, draft status or any other accolade earned outside of UW is irrelevant when it comes to this list.

This isn't a one-man job. This task called for a panel of experts. Joining 7220's Cody Tucker are Robert GagliardiJared NewlandRyan Thorburn, and Kevin McKinney.

We all compiled our own list of 50 and let computer averages do the work. Think BCS -- only we hope this catalog is fairer.
