Gators Earn SEC All-Sports Title

The University of Florida is the only school to ever sweep the men's, women's and overall Halifax Media Group Southeastern Conference All-Sports Titles. During the 2011-12 academic year, Florida did it for the 12th time in program history. It's the 22nd overall, the 19th women's and 16th men's titles for Florida.

"Claiming the SEC All-Sports title is something we take a lot of pride in. The level of competition in the Southeastern Conference is so challenging, as so many league teams are among the top contenders for national titles," Florida Athletics Director Jeremy Foley said. "To win the trophy is a credit to the efforts of our coaches and their athletes."

Florida leads the SEC all-time with 205 total SEC team titles. The dominance isn't just long term—the Gators lead the SEC with 49 titles in the last ten years. This doesn't include the American Lacrosse Conference title the Gators also won for the second straight year.

Florida earned three SEC titles during the 2011-12 season, coming in gymnastics, women's tennis and women's indoor track & field.

The women's title was the sixth consecutive earned by the Florida program.

The national rankings of athletic programs will be released June 27. Florida has ranked in the top 10 on that list for 28 consecutive years, the only athletic program to claim that accomplishment.
