Tennessee captures second straight SEC All-Sports title | Condition
The University of Tennessee secured their second consecutive SEC All-Sports title, presented by the USA Today Network, with the Vols and Lady Vols taking first place in both the men’s and women’s standings for the first time.
“I’m so proud of our student-athletes, coaches, staff and all the fans and donors who support us,” said Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Danny White. “This is a team effort and everyone has an important role to play. We’re just getting started with Rocky Top, but this early success gives us the confidence to keep building.”
Tennessee’s rise to the top coincides with White’s assumption of leadership of the department in 2021.
In addition to winning both SEC softball championships in Tennessee this year, the following teams finished in the top four in their respective SEC races (regular season rankings or championship event): Soccer (Second East), Men’s Cross Country (Second ), women’s swimming and diving (runner-up), men’s tennis (runner-up), men’s swimming and diving (third), women’s basketball (third), men’s golf (third), soccer (third), women’s tennis ( third), women’s track and field and field (third), and men’s outdoor track and field (third).
In his first full academic year under White, Tennessee clinched its first SEC Overall All-Sports Trophy last May. Tennessee also ranked first in the SEC Men’s All-Sports standings and ranked second in the SEC Women’s All-Sports standings a year ago.
That year, the second full school year under White’s direction, Tennessee became only the second SEC school to win both the men’s and women’s titles in the same year.
The final placement of SEC teams in the All-Sports compilations was:
