The Gators won six league titles on the way to winning the SEC All-Sports title for the 25th time in program history. The final determination came after baseball and outdoor track and field concluded on Saturday, and Florida edged Texas A&M in the final results.
“The SEC is such a challenging league, with so many teams across all the sports ranking among the nation’s best,” Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said. “This overall Southeastern Conference All-Sports Trophy is the result of so much hard work and effort by all of our student-athletes and coaches.”
Florida’s SEC titles came in men’s indoor track and field, men’s outdoor track and field, men’s swimming and diving, softball, volleyball and women’s swimming and diving.
The Gators came in second in men’s athletics, finishing one half point behind LSU, and second in women’s athletics, finishing behind the Aggies.
Florida has now won 23 of the last 24 SEC All-Sports titles. The one year in that span when the Gators didn’t win it was 2005-06, and they finished second place. With the men and women both coming in second place, it’s the first time both didn’t finish in first place since the 2007-08 season.
