UT becomes just the second school to sweep the men’s and women’s titles in the same year
Tennessee Athletics has earned its second straight SEC All-Sports title, presented by USA Today Network, as the Vols and Lady Vols finished first 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,” Vice Chancellor/Director of Athletics Danny White said said White. “This is a team accomplishment, and everyone plays an important role. We are just getting started on Rocky Top, but this early success gives us the confidence to keep building!”
The rise to the top for Tennessee Athletics coincides with White taking over the department’s lead in 2021.
In addition to sweeping both SEC softball championships, Tennessee this year saw the following teams finish in the top four in their respective SEC races (regular-season standings or championship event): football (second East), men’s cross country (second), women’s swimming & diving (second), men’s tennis (second), men’s swimming & diving (third), women’s basketball (third), men’s golf (tied for third), soccer (third), women’s tennis (third) and men’s outdoor track & field (third).
In its first full academic year under White, Tennessee secured its first-ever SEC Overall All-Sports Trophy last May. Tennessee also finished first in the SEC Men’s All-Sports standings while earning a second-place finish in the SEC Women’s All-Sports standings a year ago.
This year, the second full academic year under White’s leadership, Tennessee became just the second SEC school to capture both the men’s and women’s titles in the same year.
