HONOR CORD PRESENTATION AND GRADUATION SOCIAL 2016 The 10th annual graduation social for fourth- and fifth-year student-athletes was held at the John Paul Jones Arena on May 20. Co-hosted by the Virginia Athletics Foundation and Athletics Academic Af- fairs, this year's event celebrated close to 120 student-athletes' accomplishments as graduating members of the Class of 2016. Associate athletics director for aca- demic affairs Adrien Harraway gave the opening remarks. Head coaches or other representatives from each sport presented graduating student-athletes with a spe- cial orange, white and blue honor cord to distinguish their contributions to Virginia athletics during Commencement. Thank you to the families, coaches, donors and academic advisors for helping these stu- dents succeed both on and off the field. Congratulations Class of 2016! MEN'S LACROSSE REUNION Over 60 men's lacrosse alumni and their guests returned to Charlottesville the weekend of April 16-17 for a reunion, which honored the 10-year anniversary of the 2006 NCAA and ACC Championship team. The weekend kicked off with a Friday reception on the UVA Corner, followed by an open practice and a dinner Saturday in downtown Charlottesville. Prior to the men's lacrosse game versus Duke on Sunday, alumni and their friends and families gathered for a pregame tailgate. Members of the 2006 NCAA and ACC cham- pionship teams were honored on the field at halftime in recognition of their special accomplishment. Thank you to all alumni who at- tended the weekend's events. It was an honor to recognize their mile- stone achievement and celebrate with other alumni at the reunion.
