SCU Student-Athletes Earn Degrees

June 17, 2003

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - This past weekend marked the conclusion of numerous Santa Clara student-athletes' careers, as the University conferred degrees to 52 Broncos.

Of the 17 varsity programs, 15 had at least one graduate representing their respective teams. On the women's side, basketball combined for five graduates, while softball and tennis each had four. On the men's side, baseball and crew had seven new alums each, while cross country had four.

Baseball players show off their new diplomas.


Two graduates from men's tennis -- Ben Hidalgo and Rick Ruso -- will begin graduate studies as they remain eligible for next season. Additionally, Ruso becomes the 29th member of his family to graduate from the mission campus. On another note, two sets of twins graduated: Chrissy and Cindy Hirsch of volleyball, and Brad and Cord Anderson of men's basketball.
