GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- It was another sweep for Florida in the Halifax Media Group’s Southeastern Conference All-Sports standings.

The Gators won the overall and men’s and women’s titles for the 12th time. The overall title was the 22nd for Florida, which remains the only school in the 12-team league to win all three titles in a single season.

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

UF won SEC titles in gymnastics, women’s tennis, and women’s indoor track. The lacrosse program plays in the American Lacrosse Conference.

Standings are determined by awarding points based on conference finish (12 points for first, 11 for second, etc.) and dividing that total by the number of sports. UF totaled 156.5 points in 16 sports. That averaged out to 9.78 points, which allowed the Gators to edge out Georgia (8.81 points). UF won the women’s title by averaging 10.0 points (Georgia was second with 9.11 points) and the men’s title by averaging 9.5 points (Georgia was second with 8.43 points).
