KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- On Friday, the University of Tennessee held 2013 fall commencement ceremonies at Thompson-Boling Arena. The Tennessee soccer program said farewell to three graduates -- Ashlee Burt, Caroline Capocaccia and Jessica Rolfs.
Every student-athlete has a different story, a different journey from the first box of belongings picked up at freshman move-in to the last picture taken at graduation. Burt received her undergraduate degree from the University of Miami (Fla.) and played a fifth year of eligibility at Tennessee in 2012 before serving as a team intern and completing her master's degree this fall. Capocaccia, who recently received Capital One Academic All-District 3 honors, spent all four years at UT and graduated in just three and a half years. Rolfs overcame injuries over the years and just completed her fifth year of eligibility, receiving her degree in four and a half years.
