Florida used to own what is today in Tennessee.

Tennessee has won the SEC All-Sports championship for three straight years thanks to the athletic teams of the Volunteers and Lady Vols. Tennessee made history earlier this month by being the first team in the Southeastern Conference to win conference championships in softball, baseball, and basketball all in the same year.

Tennessee finished first in the men’s standings and won the USA Today Network-sponsored overall sports title. Texas A&M prevailed over Tennessee’s women in the end.

“I am so proud of our exceptional student-athletes, coaches and staff, as well as the unwavering support of our fans and donors here on Rocky Top,” Tennessee athletic director Danny White said in a statement. “Securing the SEC All-Sports trophy for the third consecutive year is a testament to the dedication and hard work of everyone involved.”

Although Florida has won the trophy an astounding 28 times, it hasn’t done so since 2017–18, when the team won its 12th consecutive championship.

Tennessee scored 148.13 points in this year’s race, narrowly surpassing Texas A&M’s 147.50 points. With 129.75 points, Florida came in third place. Georgia (124.50) and Arkansas (123.50) completed the top five.

Florida had four SEC title teams, compared to five for Arkansas. Tennesse had three championship teams and three other teams that placed second.

Tennessee, Texas A&M, Florida, Georgia, Arkansas, Auburn, Alabama, LSU, Kentucky, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, and Missouri made up the entire finish order.

The top five women’s teams were LSU, Texas A&M, Tennessee, Arkansas, Florida, and Alabama, while the top five men’s programmes were Tennessee, Texas A&M, Alabama, Florida, and Auburn.
