Eight high school cadet student athletes were honored with an early graduation ceremony on Wednesday afternoon at the Mabee Auditorium in the Toles Leaning Center on the NMMI campus: seven members of the Colt baseball team and one member of the Lady Colt track and field team.

Both NMMI teams qualified and will compete in the NMAA’s Class 4A State Championships this weekend, and might otherwise miss the Institute’s normal high school graduation ceremony scheduled for Saturday.

The Colt baseball team takesĀ on top-seeded Hope Chrisitian in the quarterfinals at 1:00 pm on Thursday at Rio Rancho High School.

Sierra Walker, along with her sophomore sister Mia Walker, will compete in several events – including the 800m, 1600m and 3200m runs – on Friday and Saturday at UNM’s track and field complex in Albuquerque.

Best of luck to our eight early grads this week atĀ state and at the next level!
